Shares of Michael Kors Holdings Limited (KORS - Free Report) have underperformed the industry in the past three months. The stock has gained 1.7%, underperforming the industry’s rise of 12.9%.

Retail stocks have been on fire this month. All the trade war drama has done little to dampen their enthusiasm. With the S&P Retail ETF (NYSEARCA:XRT) a stone’s throw away from all-time highs, I took a stroll through the sector last night and discovered many mouth-watering charts.
