Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Target stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Target is trying all means to rapidly adapt to the changing retail ecosystem. The company is deploying resources to enhance omni-channel capacities, come up with new brands, remodel or refurbish stores and expand same-day delivery options to expedite the shopping process. All these bode well for the stock that has outpaced the industry in the past six months and continued with its upbeat top-line performance in first-quarter fiscal 2018 as well. However, bottom line missed the consensus mark for the second quarter in row but managed to score year-over-year growth, despite rise in cost of sales and SG&A expenses. Analysts pointed that incremental investments, higher wages and rise in costs due to new fulfillment options may weigh on margins to an extent. Nevertheless, it is better to face short-term impediments in order to attain the long-term goals. Meanwhile, Target maintained its fiscal 2018 view, which looks quite encouraging." (5/25/2018) 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We believe Target made great strides improving its omni-channel offering in its 2017 ‘investment year’ in which operating margins contracted over 100bps to 6%. While we expect greater OM stability in 2018, and are encouraged by an improved top-line/traffic result in 1Q, we see continued investment pressuring margin in ’18 on as TGT accelerates its strategy. We remain NEUTRAL. Sales increased 3.5% to $16.56bn (vs. our $16.4bn est) on a stronger-than-expected 3.0% comp increase (vs. our 2.0%). The comp was led by a strong 3.7% increase in traffic, the strongest quarterly performance in >10 years, following a solid 3.2% traffic increase in the fourth quarter. Digital sales rose 28% in 1Q, ~in-line with the pace of growth in 4Q, and contributed 1.1% of the comp increase (stores contributed 1.9% to the comp)." (5/23/2018) Are investors shorting Target?
