Teflon Target still doing just fine

  • Shares of Target (TGT) shrug off news that an Alabama credit union filed a class action lawsuit against it to remain higher than where they stood pre-security breach crisis.
  • The company's customers are "sticky" despite the recent hiccups because of their adherence to the REDcard program, notes some retail analysts. Also behind the scenes is Target's $4B buyback program which might be adding some strategic support to share price.
  • TGT +0.2% premarket.

    Have been following TGT only for a few months now but buying back shares while they are under pressure IMHO makes much more sense than wasting billions of shareholder $$ to buy back when the price is at peaks. Just my 2ยข
