Is Target's Rally Running on Empty? Analysts Divided After Earnings

Target Corporation (TGT: NYE) stock price has gained substantially over the past few months, but following the release of its Q4 2023 earnings report, analysts are questioning its long-term outlook.

 

An Overview of Target’s Recent Earnings:  

The report showed a modest 1.6% year-over-year increase in revenue, which some analysts find concerning. While net income did jump by 57.8%, this is attributed to significant cost-cutting measures that may not be sustainable in the long run.
