Target margin concerns unlikely to abate in near-term, says Stifel

Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan noted that Target's Q3 gross margin was 100bps below consensus and company guidance, due to higher fulfillment costs and the timing of holiday inventory costs. The gross margin weakness more than offsets the solid growth in same-store sales, according to Astrachan, who views the Q3 results as indicative that margin concerns are unlikely to abate in the near-term. He lowered his price target on Target shares to $80 from $93 following the report and keeps a Hold rating on the stock.

Overweight
Target initiated with an Overweight at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma initiated Target (TGT) with an Overweight rating and $110 price target. The analyst says Target's investments and improved execution are driving stronger comps, telling investors in a research note that he thinks this is sustainable in the current environment. Rather than viewing Target as a participant in the Amazon (AMZN) vs. Walmart (WMT) battle, Yruma thinks its unique mix of consumables and high-margin apparel/home decor leave it well-positioned to take share from at-risk retailers.

Outperform
Target sales solid, buy today's pullback, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict noted Target's earnings shortfall but he said sales remain strong with digital growth continuing to accelerate. The analyst did say gross margins were soft, reflecting higher digital fulfillment costs and other supply chain expenses. He remains encouraged by its continued top-line momentum and said he is inclined to buy today's pullback. Benedict maintained his Outperform rating and $100 price target on Target shares ahead of the company's earnings conference call.

Outperform
Target shares 'simply too inexpensive,' buy the selloff, says Baird
While Target's Q3 results missed Street expectations, its "robust" traffic of 5.3% remains among the best in retail, Baird analyst Peter Benedict tells investors in a research note. The stock's current valuation is "simply too inexpensive" given Target's "renewed brand relevance and topline momentum," says the analyst. He recommends buying the shares on today's post-earnings selloff. Benedict lowered his price target for the stock to $93 from $100 and reiterates an Outperform rating on Target. The retailer closed the trading day down 10.5%, or $8.12, to $69.03.
