    Re: Target and TJ Maxx Boycott

    Bama_Man, this is from Target folks themselves, and while they explain what they believe to be part of the problem with their documented decline, it doesn't include anything about "losing in the online sales portion" as you have claimed to be Target's main negative issue. Maybe they need to hire you as CEO to get a clue on how to rise from the ashes.

    Target’s earnings beat won’t do much to change investor opinion, analysts say

    By Tonya Garcia
    Published: May 17, 2017 4:20 p.m. ET


    The shift to digital is making investors bearish about all bricks-and-mortar retailers>
    from Bloomberg

    Target said its digital sales were up 22% in the first quarter


    Target Corp. reported better-than-expected first-quarter earnings on Wednesday, but Buckingham Research Group analysts are skeptical the retailer will succeed in changing negative investor sentiment.

    Target TGT, +0.94% reported adjusted earnings per share of $1.21, beating the FactSet consensus of 91 cents. Sales, at $16.0 billion, were ahead of the FactSet forecast of $15.6 billion, though they were down from $16.2 billion last year. E-commerce sales climbed 22%.

    Same-store sales were down 1.3%, which the company attributed to “small declines in both traffic and basket size.”

    Target Chief Executive Brian Cornell said the retailer did better than expected despite “a very choppy environment.” But they’re “not doing any high-fives” since the quarterly results aren’t “what we expect to deliver over time.”

    For investors, the concern is the much-discussed secular shift that’s happening in digital, according to Buckingham Research analysts.

    “[T]he quarter is unlikely to sway the entrenched bearish view of most investors which hold that terrestrial retailers will continue to lose share to the online channel for the foreseeable future,” analyst John Zolidis wrote in a Thursday note. “We believe Target shares can start to earn a better multiple if the company can follow up the first quarter with sequentially improving trends, especially in traffic, over the balance of the year.”

    Zolidis was encouraged by the stability of the business even if it’s under pressure; the fact that Target maintained its fiscal 2017 guidance for a low-single-digit decline in same-store sales; and improved balance sheet metrics.

    He believes the company has a “legitimate strategy” in place, which includes introducing more private label brands and convenience perks, like the same-day delivery that’s being tested in a New York location. Target could pick up market share as other retailers close stores, he said, something Cornell discussed on a separate media call.

    “We recognize over the next three years $45 billion to $60 billion in market share is up for grabs,” Cornell said.

    Buckingham Research rates Target shares buy with a $71 price target.

    Target is in the midst of a $7-billion multi-year transition that will include store redesigns.

    “We invested nearly $500 million of capital in the first quarter and we’re on track to invest more than $2 billion this year,” Cornell said on the Thursday morning call, according to a FactSet transcript.

    Target is number one in swim, according to Cornell, and the retailer is also benefiting from store closures and brand exits from that category, like the one from L Brands Inc.’s LB, +0.23% Victoria’s Secret label.

    “Our team worked quickly to launch our new brand Shade & Shore, which has delivered strong results since the launch,” Cornell said.

    Later this month, Target will launch Cloud Island, a line of nursery décor, bedding, bath and other products.

    Cornell also said the limited-time Victoria Beckham collection that sold this past quarter was “one of the single biggest partnerships in our history.”

    Charlie O’Shea, Moody’s lead retail analyst, called the results “mixed,” but also found a number of positive points.

    “Given the scope of this transition, year-over-year comparisons will be difficult, though we believe online sales growth and operating cash flow levels will be meaningful data points,” O’Shea said. “At present, Target’s strong balance sheet, excellent liquidity, and flexible financial policy regarding shareholder returns provide the company with sufficient credit support to execute its plan.”

    Target shares are down 23.2% for the year so far while the S&P 500 index SPX, -1.82% is up 5.8% for the period.

    What are you talking about? The first line talks about how investors view brick and mortar stores, which was a big point that I had made.

    And it's funny, Target seems to be rebounding some, j thought the boycott killed them? That it wasn't their miniscule digital presence (at that time) or Wal Mart dominating brick n mortar while Amazon dominates online, it was their bathroom policy. Doesn't matter that Wall Street has shown time and again that social causes matter naught to them, only profit and how to maximize it.

    I must admit, my wife has been to Target three times in the last month, and on one of those dreadful instances she drug me in the store with her to carry her cat's fresh litter and her dog's food. You don't think I felt abused?.. but you don't think I'm dumb enough to tell her what to or not to do though do you?

    I just held my nose and shut my eyes while I was in there.

    The separate facilities for men and women is clearly discriminatory, since they are clearly not "equal." The chauvinistic male establishment deprives women of urinals. Sexist distinctions should be removed and all facilities labeled simply "Toilets."

    I thought Target had separate facilities. I didn't realize all of their bathrooms were unisex. Of course, I can't recall the last time I used one of the facilities at a Target, if ever.

    While target has provided "family" toilet facilities labeled for both males and females, they still persist in the providing of the sexist "Men" and "Women" too. Politically incorrect separate but equal is discrimatory, right?

    Did you go into the ladies room and drop a "5 Alarm"? I would. Seriously... I would eat a chili slinger a few hours before... and then blast off in the ladies room.

    Why?
