    Is the BJ’s IPO a Threat to Costco Wholesale Corporation?

    Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST) survived the retail apocalypse relatively unscathed, but should BJ’s IPO have Costco — and COST stockholders — spooked? Last week, BJ’s Wholesale Club announced that it would be coming back onto the public market after a seven year hiatus during which the firm’s private equity owners Leonard Green & Partners and CVC Capital Partners say they expanded the company and prepared it to compete in the increasingly competitive retail space. The BJ’s IPO has shined a spotlight on wholesale retailers like Costco and Walmart Inc’s (NYSE:WMT) Sam’s Club.

    Want to get in on BJ’s IPO? Buy Costco’s stock instead

    In the case of BJ’s Wholesale Club, you had better think twice about buying. The company was taken private by CVC Capital Partners and Leonard Green & Partners in 2011, and its owners’ attempt to cash in is not backed up by rapid sales growth or strong financial performance. BJ’s (IPO:BJ) is a relatively small competitor when compared with Costco Wholesale Corp. (COST) and Walmart Inc. (WMT) unit Sam’s Club.

    Target Stock's Upside Looks Limited

    Target stock has recouped those losses into May but covered little new ground, stuck in a trading range that has now entered its fifth month. Sector sentiment has improved substantially since March, with department stores posting multi-month highs while rival Costco Wholesale Corporation ( COST) flirts with a bull market high. This bullish tailwind raises the odds for a buy-the-news reaction that lifts Target stock above stubborn resistance in the upper $70s.
