Target reports strong start to Black Friday in stores, record online sales

Target reported a strong start to the holiday shopping season. Millions of guests visited Target stores across the country and Target.com, which had its biggest day ever and experienced double-digit growth, to save on Black Friday deals, including the retailer's lowest prices ever on select items. "Shopping at Target has become an annual Thanksgiving tradition for millions of our guests, and we're thrilled at the response we've seen this year. We had a record-breaking day on Target.com and traffic to our stores was strong," said Brian Cornell, chairman and CEO of Target, who greeted shoppers at the Jersey City Target store in N.J. on Thanksgiving and will be ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange in celebration of Kids Day later this morning. "This year, we doubled down on offering guests an incredible assortment at outstanding prices. Based on early results, it's clear that our deals are cutting through. We expect this momentum to continue throughout the weekend and into next week as we offer Target's guests a truly unprecedented opportunity to save 15 percent off nearly everything online and in our stores this Sunday and Monday."

BofA thinks Verizon deal stays on track despite Yahoo data breach
Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Justin Post said that Yahoo's (YHOO) disclosure of the massive data breach impacting over 500M of its users is clearly a negative for the company that could result in email account closures, but he does not anticipate a major impact on Yahoo's business related to this breach, citing as evidence the fact that he is not aware of any significant business impairment or financial liability related to security breaches at LinkedIn (LNKD) in 2012 and at eBay (EBAY) in 2014. Post adds that the Target (TGT) data breach, which did include credit card info, is not directly comparable to Yahoo's breach. For Verizon (VZ) to back out of its acquisition agreement, Post thinks the company would need to assume Yahoo acted in bad faith during negotiations and that the Yahoo asset is impaired or comes with significant liability, neither of which he sees as being the case. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Yahoo and bumped his target on the shares to $55 from $53, citing an increased price target on Alibaba (BABA) that a peer at the firm recently set.
