    Christmas Left Too Many Toys Behind in Target’s Aisles

    A Christmas sales miss by Target (NYSE:TGT) put coal in many corporate stockings.Source: Robert Gregory Griffeth / Shutterstock.com The company said comparable-store sales grew just 1.4% during the Christmas season, with toy sales flat and electronics down 6%. The retailer maintained its earnings guidance.Shares fell anyway, by nearly $9 or 7%. Target stock opened Jan. 17 below $117, with a market capitalization of about $59 billion.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsTarget wasn't the only stock traders tossed aside. Toy makers in particular were hammered, although both Hasbro (NASDAQ:HAS) and Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT) later recovered. Morgan Stanley even warned about mighty Walmart (NYSE:WMT), although not for the reason I had.Should Target shareholders panic and run for the exits? Or is this a buying opportunity? What's Going On?Shareholders have been taking profits on Target since early December, but little has changed.The company's strategy of building high-quality store brands continues to work, with rivals like Kohl's (NYSE:KSS) being downgraded. * 7 Small-Cap Stocks That Are Not Worth a Second Glance The strategy is based on the realization that just putting stuff on sale no longer works. But Target can't make iPhones or PCs. Electronics was the department that took the hardest hit, and it was the most popular category with children.Unable to throw Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) under the bus because of the Target miss, analysts decided to toss the toy makers. They had been expecting better results after the Toys "R" Us bankruptcy, they didn't pay attention when toy makers themselves trimmed their lines and they ignored an Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) announcement that its toy sales were strong. What's the Problem?Many analysts gave Target a mark of "A" for its performance during the holiday season, noting that online sales were up 19%.But there is a problem. Target has become known as a soft goods retailer. People go to Target for clothes.This means there are Target brands that may not be performing, like Opalhouse, Project 62 and Room Essentials. The company's release on Christmas said its home goods, as well as toy sales, were flat. Target now has 41 such brands, in clothes, food, pet supplies and personal care. It also has 10 "exclusive brands" for which it's the only outlet, including two wine brands.There are two ways to look at this. The glass half-full crowd will say that Target has gotten women, especially high-income women, into the store. The glass half-empty crowd will complain that it's not getting enough of their money.For most consumers there are different kinds of shopping. There's clothes shopping, which is seasonal, personal and occasional. Target is doing great there. Then there's weekly shopping, the daily grind of groceries and related products, of filling out a list. This is where Target remains weak. Not all Target stores have grocery departments, and those that do have limited choices. Target's not a food store, in the way Kroger (NYSE:KR), Walmart or even Costco (NASDAQ:COST) are food stores. The Bottom Line on Target StockTarget CEO Brian Cornell is in the position of a football coach who has had a great season and now sees top assistants being poached by losing teams. An example is former chief merchandising officer Mark Tritton, hired away by Bed, Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ:BBBY).Cornell is building a new team and must develop new ideas to keep Target growing. It's not about rebuilding but reloading. Investors want to see whether Target can defend its new success against its own people, and how it will expand the beachhead it has established.With a dividend yield now over 2.2%, and a price-to-earnings ratio of 18.7, Target stock is fully priced, but its weakness makes it a good speculation for income investors seeking long-term defensive plays.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

    Best Buy, toy makers and Walmart stocks fall in wake of Target's disappointing sales

    Shares of Best Buy Co. Inc. dropped 2.8% in premarket trading Wednesday, after the consumer electronics retailer appeared to suffer from the fallout of Target Corp.'s disappointing holiday-period sales performance. Target said earlier same-store sales during the November/December period rose 1.4%, "below our expectations," given softer-than-expected performance in electronics, toys and portion of home assortment.
