Target (TGT) says that beginning with its 2013 fiscal year that it will no longer report monthly sales, joining Wal-Mart and other major names in ending the practice. Reuters editor Brad Dorfman has the most sarcastic take on the development: "One step closer to my dream, when our entire monthly view of retail will be set by WTSLA and SSI."

    Is that a wet dream?

    This is just monthly fodder for the pundits that have nothing better to report. It is like the monthly jobs reports.

    Somebody is guessing that since Wall Street puts such strong reliance in the government's statistical lies, that they (Target) should not be held to a higher standard and report real sales that then hits their stock price. Lets just dumb the whole system down. That'll fix it.
