Just yesterday, one of those Fools, eajohnson1, succinctly summed up the Target bull case for our community:

Looks a little undervalued based on likelihood of growth. Has been generating cash steadily in last few years and using it to grow business or return to shareholders. Expansion to Canada seems natural, not forced; same with groceries & loyalty programs. Consumer confidence seems reliably back even if whole economy is not.
