Jeff Bishop of TopStockPicks.com says that sentiment over retail stocks and the dominance of Amazon.com is so bad that it creates a fourth-quarter play on the SPDR S&P Retail ETF. Jeff noted that the ETF includes stocks that aren’t the kind being crushed by Amazon, but they have been oversold as the ETF has lost 10 percent year-to-date. He will use both shares and options to start playing the XRT if he sees a slight pullback from current levels.
