Best Stock To Watch

The Minneapolis-based retailer’s stock (NYSE: TGT) seems to be unfairly weighed down by overly bearish stock analysts. Target’s operating profit margin is about 29 percent stronger than that of Wal-Mart, yet its stock is valued about the same on a price-to-earnings basis. TGT has plenty of room to run once management improves Target’s U.S. same-store retail sales, provides more information on how profitable its new Canada operations can be, and either fully leverages or finally sells off its incredibly profitable but risk-related credit card business.
