  • target-carts-200.jpg

    Discount retailer Target hit the bull's-eye with its better-than-expected earnings report and subsequent stock rise on Wednesday. One analyst thinks the discount retailer still has room to run.

    Big retailers including Costco Wholesale, Macy’s, Target, and Kohl’s reported June sales that failed to meet estimates. Some retailers even changed their earnings forecasts as a result. As the back-to-school season and the holidays get closer, a rotten retail stock could start to stink. Here’s what analysts are looking out for.

    Overall, retailers' June sales are concerning. Back-to-school is the second biggest "season" for retail after the Christmas holidays, and it's just around the corner.
