The retailer operates 50 warehouse clubs in 12 countries and one U.S. territory, with plans for new warehouse club operations in Jamaica and Colombia underway.

PriceSmart stock has shed 2.1% this year, and 21.1% year-over-year. the security looks to have found its footing near the $70 mark, though the 40-day moving average continues to loom overhead as resistance. The retail stock also offers a dividend yield of 1.18% with a forward dividend of $0.86.

PriceSmart is also expected to increase its revenues 6.4% and earnings 10.4% for fiscal 2023, indicating a decent growth rate.
