  • On April 19th, 2016. TGT announced its bathroom policy. The stock closed at $83.98. It's been down since that very fateful day and never has seen a penny higher. TGT has decided not to run the company as a business but as a political activist. Doesn't anyone see that?

    Not a penny higher since the announcement. Anyone is still telling me that the bathroom policy has no effect? What a bunch of stupids!

    Their favorite line: "Find me one, just one, example that letting men in women's bathroom endanger women." They don't report it, of course and therefore, you can't fine any.

  • But WMT says "keep it coming TGT".

    Boy did you hear the kicker statement? It's our "over paid workers who are buying WMT..." So TGT, do your homework and give all your workers a $15 living wage so they can support their own company where they work. I bet you can give your top line figure a boost!

    LOL!!! I love it when the stupids putting liberal politics into and ahead of its business. That's the best shorting indicator on earth without a doubt. As a capitalist, I adhere to the market signals.

    I hope TGT CEO and its BOD a great political success. I've bet my horses to your success.

    CEO should come clean.

    Don't be naive about this. First, the slavish analysts and the TGT BoD won't dare to touch this subject. This CEO in particular is an ultra liberal activist who will never ever be doing anything wrong. Doing anything to revert the prior decision is an admission that the liberal agenda (aka bathroom policy) is unwelcome. Can't have that! No way, Jose! You gotta be kidding!

    There are plenty of things to blame: climate change, unreasonable short selling pressure, uneducated shoppers, economic down turns, elections, fart stench in bathrooms, etc, etc. Just about anything he can, and he will throw at people. Just watch.

    Raised Dividend to 60 cents

    It's the simplest form of math that liberals will never understand. It doesn't take a certified scientist to figure this out. However, they do know how to milk a cow. They know where the money is so they will go get it and they can do whatever the hell they all want with the money. In this case, they declared war against good business model and its customers. Since there is no federal government to back them up, they will come milk the fat cow called shareholders.

    I've said that many times already. All of that are done to TGT have been intentional. You are going to get burn if you go long with TGT. Enough said already.

    You guys still whining about the bathrooms?

    AMZN can definitly use TGT in a big way!

    TGT will need to go bankrupt. Liquidate all its inventory. AMZN can then pickup the goods with a one felt swoop. TGT can therefore go to hell and leave the world with a thud. That's the best thing happening since the dawn of bread and butter. TGT liquidate, AMZN sells more cheap stuff, short TGT and long AMZN WMT. The world will be a happier place.

    Thanks to the worst than dirt political activist TGT CEO and BoD. They want to harm women and girls by setting up extremely dangerous conditions in places where no one with jewel should go in. Too bad, so sad.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • WMT goes higher, TGT goes lower. Companies that do the right things should get the business. Companies that do the wrong things should go to hell and bankrupt. That's how the market should work and that's the natural law of economic. Any stupid bathroom policy is all that it takes to send the bad company to the fire of the pit of hell.

    Unlike some activist CEO and the BoD of some loser company.

    My question

    Why don't you just say it if you have something valuable to share instead of painting people with a broad brush to whom you do not agree? Isn't that just as bigoted and unhappy as you are yourselves, sir/madam/whatever? How do you know I am supposed to be younger than you, or if I am a "WHITE" person at all. And what do you know about me from where I came, and what I have gone through to be who I am today?

    You have the nerves to call others bigots. Just look at yourselves first!

    Suppliers did not cause this boycott.

    That's right. The fault is never the political activist, it is always someone else fault. Sales are weak so blame the weather. They kicked their customers away and claiming cost is too high. Now cost is high so blame the supplier for not helping. Get that picture?

    If I were a supplier, I'd find other outlets to sell my stuff instead already.

    Target Powering Upwards

    Look! Companies raise and drop dividends almost everyday. Under normal circumstances, a company reward investors' loyalty by increasing dividend especially when a company makes it great on the book. No body will argue about that.

    However, we need to look at the implication on increased dividend while sales drops. Target faces significant drops in sales figure for obvious reasons I won't repeat. Since cash is an asset, paying out dividend is equivalent to reducing asset size. We measure the debt level of a company by comparing the debt and its asset, aka Debt/Asset ratio. The simple math result is that this leverage figure has just gone up!

    For those stupid longs who still argue that the bathroom policy has no impact, the fact is that you are freaking lying to yourselves and that's BS. Without expanding business and out right hostile against its own customer, you are talking about TGT as a shrinking company has just committed to carrying on more debt. Need I say more where the stock price should go?

    New CEO and new BOD won't be happening, my friend. This is an entrenched political activist organization which happens to look like a store. This is a social experimental site so what they are pushing now is exactly what they all want -- at all cost. At all stock holders' cost. Not mine, obviously.

    If they had a sliver of thought of doing business, they would not have decided to alienate the majority of its customer and went for the stupids.

    They look at TGT as a welfare shop which can generate cash, whatever that amount to be from sales or from the marketcap. If you believe in capitalism, you should be shorting TGT because that's what a capitalist should be doing.

    The BoD approves what the CEO is doing, that's why he is blatant. I need TGT to continue with its insane suicidal political agenda experiment on a retail business. That's the sweet sound of Cha-ching for me!

    corporations should not be political activists

    The fact of the matter is that not all who left Target will go to Walmart although there can be a significant portion of them. The point isn't on how much Walmart get take away, but rather is the total number number Target can lose.

    Not all who boycott Target will sign up, and not every signup represent only a single customer for one sign up can be a family of 4 or 5 people. Also, my family used to spend 2000 to 3000 a year with them until they started to take out boy's and girl's clothing section and hang 50 shades of grey handcuffs next to toys isles. I am not surprise that their total sales YOY will be down between 4 to 6 billions in 2016.

    It doesn't matter what they say. WMT will not publicly thank TGT for what they have done to themselves, but sure will quietly celebrate the gain from their loss.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • All in the expense of the long share holders. Capitalism at its best!

    I love seeing such a great bunch running a charity business. The direction is so clear that you cannot get a better short signal than this. The CEO and the board of directors are the greatest leading indicator and they don't even need to try hard. Remember! Target is not a business. It is a political activist organization in disguise. It's main goal is not to make any money, but to push a form of cultural revolution in America. There is no better short indicator than this.

    Great job TGT! Haha....

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • You hear this here first! I predict that TGT will continue to struggle with same store sales and cannot overcome the boycotts. Doesn't matter what they say about business environments because it will never be the management's fault. While increasing dividend is a move to "increase investors value", but don't forget that they will have a harder time fulling the dividend obligation as well in light of reduced sales figure. What comes next will be issuing secondary shares. You long baggers are going to be in for a dilution ride. So much for your 7% bump of your dividend when the stock prices going to zero.

    I content that business should focus on expanding its business, not contracting its business. What TGT is doing is despicable. They are spending energy to run as a political activist outlet instead of focusing on running it like a business.

    TGT = zero

    LOL!!!!

    Is TGT responsible for the 50 dead?

    When Trump went to San Jose, CA a week or two ago for his stump speech, there were rioters attacking the speech attendees. The media, the Dems, and the establishment GOP put burden on the immigrant speech that could have driven people insane. People get mad because they get offended so they did violent things. It wasn't the rioters' fault, it's Trump and his speech's fault.

    So their solution is supposed to be "tone it down".

    Now if we apply the same logic to this situation. Shouldn't the LGBTQ community and TGT be "tone it down" because their push of bathroom policy has gone too far? Is the push of bathroom policy pushing the ISIS to do insane thing?

    Why is it the gun's fault? Also, why is it not the Islamic terrorist's fault who carry out this crime? Why then the media won't call Islamic terrorist a hate group?
