Each of these companies is at, or near, its 52-week highs. Additionally, several have perfect or nearly perfect earnings surprise records going back 5 years.

It’s not easy to beat earnings every quarter for years and these retailers are also in a tough industry.

There’s a lot of change going on in retail right now. It’s worth tuning in on these earnings report to find out how these earnings all-stars are winning at a difficult game.

Retail Stocks with Spectacular Earnings Charts

1.    Lowe’s LOW is trading near 5 year highs even though it has some misses in its track record. Competitor Home Depot had a very solid report. Many are expecting Lowe’s to follow suit.

2.    Best Buy BBY was called the “Amazon showcase” just a few years ago. But it has turned it around. Look at that chart. New 5-year highs. How are they able to do it? It’s a great retail success story.

3.    Burlington Stores BURL hasn’t missed since its 2013 IPO. Off-priced retail has been strong but there were some chinks in the armor this quarter with competitors. Will Burlington see any weakness?

4.    Costco COST is near 5-year highs even though it has missed two quarters in a row. It still has a loyal global following and a management team that seems to know just what the customer wants.

5.    Ulta Beauty ULTA keeps blowing past expectations but how long can it keep up this torrid pace? It has the best same-store-sales comps in the business. But shares are priced for perfection. Watch guidance.
