Target is hitting an all-time high today. The company is firing on all cylinders. They have alleviated e-commerce concerns. Looking at evaluation, it is rallying up to catch up the evaluation of Walmart. A duopoly that will probably do fine. Would prefer Walmart more. There is also trade war concerns eventually. Right now, it is offloaded in the supply chain, but it could come down to the consumer.

He would stay away from this one. He is not a fan of brick and mortar discretionary consumer stocks. The Canadian experience was a disaster. They did have good seasonal sales, but he sees too many things going against them.

Stocks that don’t meet expectations or miss slightly get hit hard. Q3 earnings missed. Walmart has a better platform. A tough space overall. Prefers Walmart or Costco, or even Amazon looks compelling.

This stumbled badly in Canada which set the stock back. Also, there has been a consumer pullback in the last year. The stock came back with Christmas sales, and things seem to be back to normal. Doesn't think there is anything special about this company, but it is a solid hold and you will do fine. Earnings are growing slowly.

When looking at this, you have to ask yourself if you are there for share price appreciation or for yield. If looking at this for yield, he would look elsewhere. 3.6% dividend is a good yield, but there are others that have a better balance sheet and growth trajectory.

He wants more consumer discretionary in his portfolios. This is because energy prices have been coming down and the US consumer has been deleveraging and holding back. If the US$ goes up, that means cheap goods. Likes their new CEO. His model price is $64.30, a 6% upside. He would love to see it pull back more, maybe to $55. Yield of 3.4%.

Sold his holdings because the cost to come into Canada eventually doubled from what they originally projected. They either underestimated or management didn’t have a firm hold on what the opportunity was in Canada. Sentiment has taken the stock lower. Retail sales were weaker than expected. Strong retailer and a very good franchise in things like the Red Car business. Until expectations come down, it is probably range bound and going nowhere.

Expenses coming into Canada were a lot higher than analysts initially projected. Sentiment of them coming into Canada has not been very positive. Feels they can be a player in the Canadian market over a longer period of time. High-quality retailer. Earnings estimates over the next couple of years could easily step up $7.50-$8 looking out to 2015-2016. On a valuation basis a very cheap retailer.

Has done relatively well along with the consumer discretionary stocks. When going into consumer stocks, particularly outside of Canada, she wants to see more of an international presence. Thinks their move into Canada will be incremental to earnings over the next couple of years. This one, versus Walmart (WMT-N), also appeals to the higher middle income group.
