  • Police Retirement System of St. Louis filed a federal securities lawsuit in Minnesota's U.S. District Court Tuesday against Target (NYSE: TGT)

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The professionals and hedge funds are voting with their pocket books and so are TGT customers

    The professional analysts that have changed their positions today ALL lowered their targets on TGT
    They know it is going down and they do not want to loose credibility on the street by supporting it

    You can make money shorting TGT or buying puts. Or if you are a long, you can lower your cost basis and protect some of the potential loss by selling in the money covered calls.

    TGT is out of favor and will be for some time. Hopefully they apologize for their 4 major mistakes and correct for shareholders

    1) Putting politics before customers and shareholders
    2) Canada Canada Canada
    3) Apparel is the wrong focus in retail right now
    4) Don't throw major money away in a loosing online war, partner with the best online and win

    Management will have too change their stripes and correct these four issues or TGT is not likely to recover any time this quarter and could continue a major down trend

    Analysts have spoken, lowered their targets

    In simple terms....the emporer has no clothes

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Massive dump of shares this week and more to follow

    Sentiment: Strong Sell


    Sentiment: Strong Sell



    WATCH "THE BIG SHORT" movie and you will understand

    Soon it will be too late for the huge profits...but you can still gt some with puts or short now


    This is retail folks, they are out of touch and Wall Street is beating them for it and will continue since their peers are doing it right

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • and until they learn to not focus on apparel and throw millions into their online initiatives.

    TGT just needs to throw in the towel on the online and partner with AMZN or merge. The same could be done with FDX or UPS, but it would never happen.

    This will go down as the worst quarter ever for TGT. Not because of sales, but because they lost their understanding of their customer base and product buying trends. Both are mortal sins in the retail business.

    They need to take some bold steps to turn this around or it may be too late to fix the PR damage

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Looks like TGT in for a beating!

    Wall Street analysts are not happy with the quarter results or the direction

    Management better promise to take focus of apparel and bathrooms and get back to customer experience and value or this company could go the way of K-mart and Sears.

    DOWNGRADES going to place serious pressure on the stock this week

    TGT used to carry a premium for making all the right moves.

    Now TGT could trade at discount to its peers for lack of direction and insight into customers needs

    This is retail folks

    It's all about who wants the foot traffic and who can make their customer the happiest while taking their money

    TGT has lost that and will test new lows soon!

    Analyst see this and several are moving their clients funds out of TGT

    This is my opinion, do your own research and I am sure you will find this is spot on

    ....of on TARGET!


    Easy short at open

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    My computer typo - "past" not passed

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I guess we can wade into some of the obvious social agenda changes in the wrong direction or we can just simply note the obvious.
    Target has become to weighted on apparel and increase competition online. While TGT has failed with this strategy,WMT, LOWS,JCP have had strong success during the same period and with the same potential customers and with the same weather that TGT was blaming.

    In the passed, TGT did an excellent job offering a comfortable suburban alternative to WMT for the soccer moms who wanted to feel like they were shopping and it was "cool" to be at target and look down at wmt shoppers. Now the public opinion, regardless of political views, is that target cares more about political position than making their primary customer base happy.

    TGT can not attract soccer moms with Starbucks when they do not want to be associated with uncomfortable bathroom practices that are FAR out of favor with their shopping base. They obviously did not do a broad enough polling prior to these decisions to alienate the people with the money and foot traffic.

    Apparel is the wrong category this quarter. Of you are going to stick your head in the sand and do it again next quarter, realize that Amazon will east your lunch and has poured billions into the best infrastructure online for years and no one can challenge that unless they loose focus.

    TGT has lost focus on pleasing their customer base with the right products and comfortable experience.

    Retail is too competitive to make two major mistakes in the same quarter. Looks like this has shifted theling tern shopping trend for the next two quarters and TGT could eventually go the way Sears and KMart did. Those companies would not listen to market trends or make their customers feel good in a competitive way.

    People do business with people and they buy what is trending that they and their neighbors feel is wanted at that season. TGT ignores economic buy patterns and real social comfort. Out of touch!

    I would put my protective buy stop in now at 67.80 to lock in short profit and ride it down as for a while this afternoon.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    only 1.5% of shoppers signed up for boycott

    Many are boycotting, but did not "sign up"

    They vote with their feet and just don't go there anymore

    target used to provide a better environment than Walmart. Now it does not have that advantage so all things equal or not, walmart will catch some overflow

    but all apparel retailers seem to be suffering a bit, so this could be a longer term trend since gas is stabilizing.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • "We're approaching our business with appropriate caution as sales trends at Target and many of our key competitors (have) weakened," Chief Executive Officer Brian Cornell said on a conference call.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
