Retail stocks have been surging lately, given their improving financials and bullish market sentiment amid the economic recovery. This trend is likely to continue in the near term, backed by continued progress on the vaccination front and rising consumer spending.

National Retail Federation (NRF) expects retail sales to grow between 10.5% and 13.5% to an estimated total of $4.44 trillion to $4.56 trillion in 2021.

The macroeconomic trends are driving investors to bet on retail stocks lately, as the pent-up demand and rising consumer spending are driving revenues of retailers.
