Target still not a turnaround story, Barron's reports

Target reported better than expected Q1 results, but some parts of the quarter are concerning, Barron's reports. Target's same-store sales beat the 3.5% decline analysts were expecting, but they still fell 1.3% year over year, the fourth straight quarter of comparable sales declines for the company. It also saw a 0.8% drop in the number of transactions and a 0.6% decline in the average transaction amount. Target's gross margin fell 40 basis points to 30.5%, and traffic dropped nearly 1% in the quarter, which contained volatile week-to-week trends, according to the company. Despite trading at a modest 13.5 times forward earnings, analysts forecast little profit growth in the coming year, so there's no reason to rush into the stock, Barron's added. Reference Link

Target Q1 results a positive step, but visibility still low, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict said Target's Q1 earnings beat was "a step in the right direction," but he adds that the bar was low and visibility remain limited. Week-to-week results remain volatile and driving positive comps remains the key for a re-rating of the stock, contends Benedict, who keeps a Neutral rating and $55 price target on Target shares.

Target Q1 comps likely ahead, but outlook remains cautious, says Cleveland
Cleveland Research analyst Scott Bender said Target sales appear to have improved in Q1 against easier comps and sees upside to consensus comp expectations for the quarter. However, the channel outlook remains cautious as there are concerns that EDLP could hurt sales, and the merchandising re-organization could cause disruptions. Bender has a Neutral rating on Target.

Dollar General unlikely to be affected by Target price cuts, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Brandon Fletcher says that Dollar General's (DG) stock fell due to worries about Target's (TGT) price cuts. however, Fletcher does not believe that there is significant overlap between the two companies' customer base or between their geographic markets, so he does not expect Dollar General to be signficantly affected by Targets moves. The analyst keeps a $91 price target and an Outperform rating on Dollar General.
