It's a great company with solid financial track records. It would do well in a recession. Let's see if it pulls back a bit later.

Costco just opened a new shop in Shanghai

Costco just opened the first store in Shanghai this week, it is also the first store in China. Apparently it's so popular that you need to wait for hours to stay in the line or enter and exit the parking lot. It's so popular that they had to shut down the store at a point. That buzz drove the stock price up 5% to a p/e ratio over 35. It's quite high if you compare with other retailers like Target or Walmart you'll see they have much lower valuations compare to Costco.

For international companies to enter China it's usually a good idea to start in Shanghai. It's more likely you're targeting the highest paid users in the entire country, also you'd be facing user behaviors similar to those in many other existing countries. So it's only natural for them to open their first shop there.

And although their refund policy says you can return anything, at any time, no questions asked, according to them only a small percentage of people do it so on average you'll be ok. Also even if you do it it will be the suppliers taking the losses on the returns. So even for the worst case scenario like in a trade war all Chinese people go there and request refund on everything in theory they'd still be ok and walk free. Which is something I find interesting how they can get their suppliers to agree on these terms and still provide you all these great, unique products that you cannot find in other retailers. Great business model maybe not recently but I can see very long term growth on this company.
