Target Continues Its Decline

On Wednesday Target Stores stock price closed at $57.83. It has cratered from its April 2016 high of $83.98. One thing I know from investing 101 is that you never look at a stock that is hopelessly lagging in a Bull Market. It is a sure sign of big underlying problems. And what is that problem?

from Breitbart:

The stock value of transgender-champion Target Corp. crashed by 13.5 percent this week after the company’s sales again fell below investors’ expectations.

Target’s stock value is now down by 30 percent since it sparked a consumer boycott by embracing the transgender political agenda. That 30 percent drop has slashed investors’ wealth by roughly $15 billion.

On Tuesday, the stock fell to $58.78, down from its April 19 high of $83.98. In contrast, WalMart is up 3 percent since April, and Kohl’s is down less than one percent. read more

And all because two months ago, one woman, some liberal from Ohio, mother of three, Abi Bechtel, tweeted her disgust with a sign in her local Target store’s toy department that simply read: “Building Sets – Girls Building Sets.”

Bechtel posted a photo of the sign on Twitter and captioned it: “don’t do this, @Target.” Oh, she also said the sign was: “regressive and harmful.”

So now the brainiacs at Target stores will go through the trouble to change “gender signage,” all because one silly woman tweeted her dislike. read more
