Target Corp has been experiencing a good run due to strong inventory management and high-profit earnings. The company has been praised for its billion-dollar house brands and its ability to harness data using AI to predict business trends. However, some critics argue that the retail business is inherently challenging and that Target's valuation may be too high given its return on capital. Despite this, social media mentions and stock performance have been on the rise.

(A Top Pick Sep 15/23, Up 38%)

Has continued to hold. Margins have continued to improve. Supply chain issues are beginning to resolve themselves. Consumer spending patterns continue support business model. ~4% dividend yield is strong and safe. Would expect share price to increase to ~$200. Excellent for long term investors.

WATCH
Target Corp

Retail advantage: $1 billion house brands, now totalling 11. Also, they have such scale, they can collect massive data and harness that data using AI to better predict their business. They just announced good inventory levels. So, they can bring in new product without having to discount the old. Since yesterday, they've had a great run.

Retail very hard business. High amount of working capital tied up in inventory. Difficult to build competitive moat with lots of competition. Would not recommend buying. If stock price falls to 12x earnings - would be a good investment. Current valuation too high given return on capital for business.

Retail has been hated this year, but TGT just reported a massive earnings blowout caused by good inventory management.

It surged today after reporting. Target has lagged its peers because it hasn't produced positive same-store sales, a key metric, in ages. They reported big profits, though same-store sales and total revenue were okay and in-line. But they slashed inventories 14% YOY, less theft and transport costs normalize. Huge earnings beat. Pays a 3.4% yield which will look more attractive if the Fed holds rates, and if inflation declines, then the consumer will have more spending money.

Not a value trap, but not one he'd buy. They household needs and wants, a 50/50 mix, are seeing a sharp decline in wants sales, though single-digit growth in needs. Not great shareholder returns, because e-commerce has taken share from bricks-and-mortar, which is Target's business.

COMMENT
Target Corp

They have troubles now, and was downgraded it, but it still offers a strong value proposition. They've done a great job on decreasing inventory, -16% last quarter. Freight costs are declining.  They will have traffic issues, but long term the value will shine. Down 18% in the past month. She may buy more if it falls more.
