According to analysts at Fairlead Strategies, the recent pullback in consumer discretionary stocks presents a buying opportunity. The sector, represented by the Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLY), is currently range-bound within its cyclical bull trend.

The firm believes a bounce is underway and is likely to extend in the near term, supported by a counter-trend rally in Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). Minor resistance is noted near $180, with more significant resistance around $185 from the March high. Key support for XLY is around $170.

Despite recent downside momentum relative to the S&P 500 (SPX), Fairlead Strategies suggests using the pullback to add exposure to consumer discretionary stocks emerging from corrective phases.

Notable picks include Carnival Corporation (NYSE:CCL), Ross Stores (NASDAQ:ROST), and Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ). The analysts advise holding existing positions in strong uptrend stocks such as Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE:CL), Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), Costco (NASDAQ:COST), Deckers Outdoor (DECK), Garmin (NYSE:GRMN), Royal Caribbean (NYSE:RCL), TJX Companies (NYSE:TJX), Tractor Supply (NASDAQ:TSCO), and Walmart (NYSE:WMT) while waiting for potential dips to add new exposure.

For stocks showing long-term turnarounds or counter-trend upmoves like eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY), General Motors (NYSE:GM), Kimberly-Clark (NYSE:KMB), Nike (NYSE:NKE), and TSLA, analysts recommend maintaining positions but managing risks with stop-loss strategies.

They also suggest watching for oversold upturns in names near support, such as Airbnb (ABNB), Home Depot (NYSE:HD), Lowe's (NYSE:LOW), Marriott (MAR), and Target (TGT).
