    Target Stock Is Still One of the Best Retail Plays

    It's no secret that Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) shook up the retail sector, especially the brick-and-mortar boxes. That created a global trend to shift most shopping transactions online. This is not a fad and it is still in its infancy stage so it won't reverse anytime soon. All retail companies are either already present online or scrambling to get there, so the acceleration is exponential. There are a few winners but most are struggling, Most brick-and-mortar stores continue to suffer even after a decade of the AMZN shock. Some have perished along the way, and many outcomes are still in limbo.Source: Mike Mozart via Flickr (Modified)But there are clear winners like Target (NYSE:TGT), Costco (NASDAQ:COST) and Walmart (NYSE:WMT) who are still thriving. Today's write-up is to share an upside opportunity that could take Target stock to $120 per share.Year-to-date, Target stock is up 32%, which is at least 17% better than WMT and AMZN and almost double that of Costco. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF (NYSEARCA:XRT) is merely up 2% for the same period. Macy's (NYSE:M) and Kohl's (NYSE:KSS) are down 25% in 2019.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsClearly, Wall Street is in favor of Target's prospects. However, the next few upticks won't be easy as it is headed into resistance.Last year ended badly for stocks. The disaster started in October and TGT stock, like the rest of them, fell off a cliff on Oct. 2, but it fought hard a month before finishing the 33% correction from September top to December bottom. But since then, TGT rebounded hard and rallied 45% to recover the entire correction. * 7 Top-Rated Biotech Stocks to Invest In Today When a stock recovers from a massive accident and reaches the ledge from which it fell, usually it encounters selling. Investors who got stuck long TGT close to $90 will want out. Besides pivot zones, this usually creates congestion in price action, which translates into resistance. So, TGT will need time and a few pushes to breach through the October accident scene.The TGT rally was not sector-wide as only the stars have bounced well. The XRT, M, KSS and JC Penny (NYSE:JCP) did not recover. So clearly investor sentiment still favors owning TGT, WMT or COST in retail.This is not a coincidence since they have all used thin margins as a power pitch for a long time, even before Amazon. So this made it a fair fight among the four. WMT and COST compete the hardest in that area, but Target lies somewhere in the in the middle.Even though its stock is up more than the other three winners it is still the cheapest of them as well. TGT has a price-to-earnings ratio of 16, which is half that of WMT and COST and five times cheaper than Amazon.So why is Target the stock to buy? It's doing things right and it's still cheap. It's just a matter of picking the right entry point.Since it's coming into resistance, those who are looking to own Target shares for the long term can start with a partial position now thereby leaving room to build it up in the next few weeks.More active traders can chase the break out above the highs. TGT stock will attract buyers above $89.20 but then more at $90.50. It is important to note that it could already be in a breakout targeting $97 per share. Crossing the all-time high could raise the target to $120 per share. The bulls have been setting higher lows attacking necklines. They already crossed the one near $83 and the all-time high is the next. How to Approach Target Stock NowFundamentally, Target management found a few niches in technology and fashion and they have avoided many of the typical retail pitfalls. They've always been a bargain play but with style and they continue to build upon those tools. They've even skirted a few headlines in the past few years, so this team is competent enough to get the job done.I can say the same for Walmart and COST, but they are both too expensive right now from my taste. Wall Street is giving them too much love so they are vulnerable to negative headlines. Conversely, TGT has less froth to shed on bad news. Yes, it's more expensive than say Macy's, but for good reason -- cheaper is not always better.Critics say that Wall Street is too flippant in the face of many concerns. But this time, unlike like last year, the Federal Reserve are no longer raising rates, in fact consensus is that they are going to cut rates maybe as early as this week. So they will prop up stocks if they need to, even though we have full employment and a strong retail environment. * The 10 Best Index Funds to Buy and Hold This is pretty close to Utopia, where good and bad economic news are good for stocks. This is why the bears are unable to maintain selling pressure on the indices too long, unlike they did last fall. The buy-the-dip-gang is in full control … for now.Case in point, sellers tried to break the Target stock rally in April but they failed. Buyers successfully defended it and finished the rally job.In summary, there are few winners in the retail sector and among them TGT stock is most interesting now. But since we are still in the middle of a whirlwind of geopolitical headlines, it's best to start with a partial position thereby leaving room to add some more ever time. After all the equity markets are near all-time highs so they are vulnerable to corrections.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.

    Why Red-Hot Target Stock Can Rise Further

    Target (NYSE:TGT) stock has been red-hot in 2019 for one very simple reason: the big-box retailer is on fire. Over the past several months, TGT has fired off quarter after quarter off hugely positive comparable sales growth, second-to-none digital sales growth, profit-margin stabilization, and strong profit growth. As shown by the struggles of Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), Macy's (NYSE:M), and J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP), TGT has achieved all of those milestones all against the backdrop of a shaky retail environment.I Source: Mike Mozart via Flickr (Modified)Investors have celebrated Target's resilience and strength. That's why Target stock is up more than 30% this year. As for the rest of the retail sector, the SPDR S&P Retail ETF (NYSE:XRT) is up just 2% in 2019.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * The 7 Best Tech Stocks to Buy for the Second Half of 2019 This outperformance by Target stock will continue. That's because TGT has found a winning strategy that boils down to transforming into a low-cost, all-in-one, omnichannel retailer. There are only three other retailers of similar size that can compete with TGT in this low-cost, all-in-one, omnichannel game. Their names are Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Walmart (NYSE:WMT), and Costco (NASDAQ:COST). In contrast to the other names in that group, Target has carved out a niche for itself by providing a higher-quality, physical-first shopping experience.So TGT has not just found a winning strategy in the retail sector, but it has also created a sustainable niche for itself. That means Target will remain red hot for the foreseeable future, so Target stock will continue to grind higher. Target Has Found a Winning StrategyFor a while, TGT was considered a left-for-dead retailer that would be gobbled up the e-commerce wave. But, over the past several years, two things have happened.Specifically, it became obvious that omnichannel, not e-commerce, is the future of retail, and Target's innovations enabled it to to become a second-to-none omnichannel retailer.On the first point, e-commerce is certainly where all the growth is happening in the retail world. But it's not entirely cannibalizing the physical channel. Consumers still like to go shop in stores, whether to try things on, see things first-hand, or simply relish in the physical shopping experience, or combinations of those. That's why e-commerce still represents just 10% of total retail sales, and why e-commerce growth rates are already slowing.Thus, the future of retail is not just online. It's a mix of physical and digital.As for the second point, the vibrancy of omnichannel naturally benefits large physical retailers because it costs significantly more money to build a physical store presence than to build an online one. TGT realized the advantage its large network of stores gave it, and it has run with its edge. The company has innovated left and right, rolling out things like buy-online, pick-up-in-store; same-day delivery; and automated checkouts. All of these things have helped Target become a low-cost, omnichannel retail giant.Importantly, TGT is different than its peers in the low cost, omnichannel game. Target offers a much higher quality shopping experience than Walmart, it doesn't require a membership like Costco, and it depends more on its physical stores than e-commerce, unlike Amazon. Target Stock Can Rise FurtherTGT's comparable sales growth has been 3%-plus for five straight quarters now, and roughly 5%-plus for four straight quarters. Its traffic growth has been 4%-plus for four straight quarters. TGT's digital- sales growth has run north of 30% for four straight quarters and north of 25% for five straight quarters. Its margins, which used to be under immense pressure, are starting to stabilize.Target's winning and defensible strategy has produced very strong numbers for the retailer.The company's growth will naturally slow over the next several years as its comparisons get harder and its omnichannel growth initiatives become less powerful. But its growth should remain healthy, as Target has proven that it can and will remain an important part of the U.S. retail world.As a result, 1%-3% comparable sales and revenue growth over the next several years seems doable. Its gross margins should stabilize during that stretch, as less steep discounts are offset by higher fulfillment costs. Its operating-spending rate should drop as it utilizes more automation and cuts some labor expenses. Target should report low-single-percentage-digit revenue growth and mid-to -high-single-digit-percentage profit growth over the next several years.I realistically think $8.50 is achievable by fiscal 2025. Based on a forward multiple of 16, which is average for the market, that implies a fiscal 2024 price target for Target stock of $136. Discounted by 7% per year (rather than 10%, because of the 3% yield of Target stock), that equates to a 2019 price target north of $95. The Bottom Line on TGT StockTGT is a winning retailer that has proven its staying power in the stable-growth, omnichannel retail world. As a result, it should be a slow and steady revenue and profit grower over the next several years. That slow and steady profit growth should keep TGT stock on a winning path, as long as the valuation of Target stock continues to remain in check.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long TGT, JWN, AMZN, and WMT.
