What’s up with the Temple and Webster share price?

The Temple and Webster share price has leapt higher this week after coming off a down period, and is now up more than 19% since last Friday’s close.

Zooming out, and investors have been selling their positions since 31 August year.

Since then, the company’s shares have tumbled from a high of $14.71 to hit 52-week lows last week.

However, the ASX retail share found buyers at this level, which has seen it jump to its current price.

In broad sector moves, the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) has also turned course this week and is lifting another 1% today. It has now gained more than 4% since last Friday’s close.

Investors look to have bought in at the sector’s lows, possibly chasing some cheap stocks with fundamental strength.
