    What’s the Expected Upside in Target Stock?

    Target Shone during the Holidays—Why Didn't Its Stock? (Continued from Prior Part) ## Ratings and target price The majority of Wall Street analysts maintain neutral outlooks on Target (TGT) stock. Analysts expect Target to benefit from increased consumer spending. Its comps are likely to sustain momentum in the coming quarters driven by growth in its traffic. Target’s investments in price, expanded digital offerings, store remodelings, the opening of small-format stores, and exclusive brand launches are expected to support its top line growth. However, pressure on its margins is expected to hurt its stock. Among the 26 analysts providing ratings on Target stock, 16 have given it “holds,” nine have given it “buys,” and one has given it a “sell.” Analysts have a consensus target price of $82.12 per share on TGT stock, which implies a potential upside of 20.3% based on its closing price of $68.29 on January 10. ## What Wall Street recommends for TGT’s peers The majority of analysts have favorable outlooks on Costco (COST) stock. Costco continues to generate strong sales and earnings growth and outperform its peers. Among the 28 analysts following COST, 17 have given it “buy” ratings, and 11 have given it “holds.” Analysts maintain a consensus target price of $237.70 on the stock, which indicates a potential upside of 12.8%. Meanwhile, of the analysts covering Walmart (WMT) stock, 18 have given it “holds,” and 14 have given it “buys.” Analysts have a consensus target price of $106.81 on WMT, which indicates a potential upside of 12.5% based on its closing price of $94.96 on January 10.

    What’s in the Offing for Target Stock?

    Target Shone during the Holidays—Why Didn't Its Stock? (Continued from Prior Part) ## TGT is likely to sustain its momentum in 2019 Target Corporation (TGT) reported strong financials in the first three quarters of 2018, and we expect it to end 2018 on a strong note and post stellar comps and EPS growth. Target is also expected to sustain the growth momentum in its sales and earnings in 2019 led by the expansion of its digital offerings. However, its growth rate is expected to slow as it faces tough YoY (year-over-year) comps. Target’s top line is expected to increase led by growth in its comps. The company’s expansion of its fulfillment options, including delivery through Shipt, Drive Up, and Order Pickup, is expected to drive its traffic. Meanwhile, store remodelings and the opening of new stores are likely to support its comps growth, as these stores generate higher sales and productivity. Target’s focus on merchandising and exclusive product launches should also drive its sales. Target managed to stabilize its bottom line in the first three quarters of 2018. A considerable fall in its effective tax rate, lower interest expenses, and share repurchases supported Target’s bottom line. We expect Target’s bottom line to continue to increase in 2019 driven by improved comps and an anticipated fall in its per-unit digital fulfillment costs. Wall Street expects Target’s top line to increase 3.1% in 2019. Meanwhile, its bottom line is expected to increase 4%. ## Stock performance in 2019 Retail stocks had wiped out most of their gains as of the end of 2018. However, these retailers started 2019 on a positive note. Target stock is up 3.3% so far this year. Meanwhile, Costco (COST), Kroger (KR), and Walmart (WMT) stocks have risen 3.4%, 3.6%, and 1.9%, respectively.

    Target Shone during the Holidays—Why Didn’t Its Stock?

    Shares of Target Corporation (TGT) fell 2.9% on January 10 despite the company’s strong holiday sales numbers. Target has disappointed on the margin front over the past several quarters, primarily reflecting higher digital fulfillment costs and price investments. During the holiday season, Target’s comparable sales rose 5.7% driven primarily by the continued strength in its e-commerce platform.
