Below are the three companies in the General Merchandise Stores industry with the highest betas. Higher-beta stocks mean greater volatility and are therefore generally considered to be riskier but also may provide the potential for higher returns.

The Company sells a variety of brand name merchandise such as Ralph Lauren bed linens, Waterman pens, and Royal Dalton china and giftware at a discount.

Potential upside of 36.0% exists for Tuesday Morning, based on a current level of $8.09 and analysts' average consensus price target of $11.00. The stock should find initial support at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $8.07 and further support at its 200-day MA of $6.12.
