An Oppenheimer Top Pick

In a recent report, Oppenheimer analyst Ari Wald shares the firm’s top stock pick in each of nine market sectors, based on technical analysis and overall score.

Among consumer discretionary stocks, Oppenheimer selected CarMax (Buy rated): “The improving economy and low gas prices have left American consumers with a lot of extra spending money, and the Consumer Discretionary sector has been hot as of late. After forming a broad base dating back to 2011, CarMax recently broke out above multi-year resistance in its chart versus the specialty retail segment.”
