+ Watch TGT
on My Watchlist
The country’s second-largest discount chain, Target shoots to be more upscale than rivals with a focus on design.
Just breaking out of its disastrous flirt with identity theft and compromised data, just breaking in new management in an improving retail market, TGT serves up a needless insult to some of its customers, AND fumbles not only the decision on firearms, but its explanation and PR implications.Regardless of your opinion on the 2nd Amendment, or firearms in general, you ought to consider this was a totally unnecessary self-inflicted wound.... TGT needs EVERY customer it can get. Charging off even under a threat from an anti gun group is a miscue of the first order. The downward spiral announced earlier in the year, will continue. More people will find reasons to avoid Target. What will idiot TGT management do next? Spit into the wind?
FCF Cow screen. Verge of a turnaround?
Over reaction to Canada and credit card issues to the negative
Now (May 2014) is not really a great time to take a new, long position in Target because they haven't yet picked a new CEO nor begun the turnaround, but I just love Target (compared to the other big box stores), and their dividend is above 3% and still growing (for now), so I feel the downside is probably limited!
Bye, bye, target Canada
Remember when TJ Maxx had a massive data breach?Yeah, neither does the market. Solid business, people have short memories, and it's a step above Wal Mart.
Sell 66-70 Markman
The security breach was annoying, but just a blip. TGT is here to stay.
Company is going to continue to suffer from image issues for the months to come, much like BP did for months after Gulf Oil Split. In the end it will regain its position. Target is also suffering from a Leadership void. http://www.darkreading.com/attacks-breaches/target-begins-security-and-compliance-ma/240166451?cid=NL_DR_Weekly_240166451&elq=ba4b21883039429595bc1c6decd0aeedCorporate Leadership needs to clean house, reorganize, and deal with securing its supply chain to bring confidence back
Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:- A payout ratio below 50%- An increasing dividend from the prior yearBecause there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen. Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.
Buy good companies in hard times.
Expansion plans and credit card issues will be resolved in time
Target is a well stocked venue, clean and updated. Management has responded efficiently and expediently to the same kind of breach that ocurred at Nieman Marcus. New stores going into Canada coupled with competitive pricing, good inventory, and a pleasant environ makes this recent low a no brainer.
Trading just a hair above its 52-week low; the security breach problems shall pass.
$73.44 price target by January 2015.
Currently trading lower
They are trading at a large discount because of being hacked. They have upgraded their security and should return to previous levels of trading.
Recovery from the credit card, customer information data theft will lift the stock price
2014 will be a difficult year for the middle-class consumer. People want to purchase items that are a good value and do not look cheap. Target products hit the strike zone of 80% of the population can find a product they would wear or use in their home.
