Retail analysts stand slightly confounded by Target's (TGT) earning report (I, II) in which it didn't warn over the impact of delayed tax return processing like AutoZone and Wal-Mart did, but set rosy guidance and seems to be indicating its firing on all cylinders. Was it the impact in Canada, growth in the food category, or just solid execution across the board? An earnings conference call at 10:30 AM EST will help peel the onion. (webcast)

    canada outlawed the penny. retailers can still price between the 5's, so there's extra profit for everything sold.

    60% of the imported oil US purchased came from Canada. With the US moving fast to energy independence Canada is going to have a hard time finding someone to replace that large an order.

    Target has yet to officially open stores in Canada.... They are going to continue to grow and produce. This isn't a short term trade, but a long term growth story. I used to work at Target years and years ago, they are a solid company.
