Guru Investment Theses on Target Corp

Mairs & Power Growth Fund Comments on Target - May 22, 2015

On the other hand, last year the market thought the retail giant Target (TGT) could do nothing right while this year it can do nothing wrong (we disagree with both views). With all of its sales in the U.S., the company sources much of its merchandise overseas so the strong dollar boosts its buying power and margins. In addition, the company’s customers have benefited from lower gasoline prices. As a result, Target’s stock is hitting all-time highs. We view the stock as generously valued currently and have been using it as a source of funds to add to our positions elsewhere.

Bill Frels Comments on Target - Oct 20, 2014

Retailer Target (TGT) experienced a positive news cycle during the third quarter due to the public enthusiasm surrounding its new CEO, Brian Cornell, who has taken the high road in announcing positive changes concerning transparency and corporate accountability. While still underperforming as of the third quarter, Target seems set to advance, and indeed the stock was already rallying later in the quarter.
