Time to Buy Target?

On this segment of Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Charly Travers discuss why Target  (NYSE: TGT  ) is a stock to watch.

Charly admits Target has had struggles recently with its data breach and margin hits in Canada, yet he continues to explain that he thinks the company is here to stay and is a viable alternative to Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT  ) . While e-commerce has hit other retailers, Charly doesn't see it really affecting Target. With the stock at $55 a share, Charly will be watching Target.

Are you ready to profit from this $14.4 trillion revolution?
Let's face it, every investor wants to get in on revolutionary ideas before they hit it big. Like buying PC-maker Dell in the late 1980s, before the consumer computing boom. Or purchasing stock in e-commerce pioneer in the late 1990s, when it was nothing more than an upstart online bookstore. The problem is, most investors don't understand the key to investing in hyper-growth markets. The real trick is to find a small-cap "pure-play," and then watch as it grows in EXPLOSIVE lockstep with its industry. Our expert team of equity analysts has identified one stock that's poised to produce rocket-ship returns with the next $14.4 TRILLION industry.

    Canada as TGT's Waterloo is exemplified in this 1 dimensional US-introverted thinking ("if not US store X, then they'll use US store Y").

    Actually Canada got along quite fine without US retail (and as a prior to ~ 8 yrs ago spending >40 yrs in US as US Citizen) I can vouch for. Many swear off Target, and losing $200 mil./Q and having them alienated (many have expressed to me they miss Zoehlers (sp?) that they bought-out.

    In any event, point is this 2.5+X NYC and growing condo market doesn't think about buying either tons of crap, or have room for tons of home crap -ALL AT A PRICE POINT THEY ARE NOT USED TO OR WILLING TO ACCEPT.

    Another problem that'll cause TGT Canada to be chronically under-perform is this is not such a car culture of drive all around from big-box to big box. People go where it's on their path (with TONs of public transit routes frequently dictating that (NOT CARS). Here's an example, Loblaws grocery chain bought Shoppers Drug mart. NOT really for the drug side, but due to urban density limiting attractive ROE & ROI locations they will, and have stocked and marketed (and discounted) the food section to the hilt. Can get everything many condo people many need right at their Shoppers. Drive ti Target? WHY? Waterloo. To win, and/or get, shopping to Target is going to make them regret their botched rollout - for that matter ever coming here. Why did Big Lots fold tent in only 1 yr?? (IMO THEY had a better chance.)
