Investing in any form of retail at the moment is very risky since investors are scared to death about the entire industry. However Tractor Supply looks like a healthy company which has seen its stock suffer undeservedly as the rest of retail gets crushed. When the retail melt down finally ends, $TSCO will probably bounce back and generate huge returns.

I'd agree with that assessment.
