    • Target (TGT +0.1%) trades higher as investors digest the information the company unveiled at its investor meeting late yesterday.
    • Though the headline items were the thousands of job cuts announced and FY16 EPS guidance, it's Target's shift in philosophy which may emerge as the biggest pullaway for investors.
    • "We recognize that we are talking about a significant cultural change, but it's driven by what the consumers want and expect from Target," said CEO Brian Cornell at the event.
    • Just 7 weeks after announcing a full exit from Canada, Target now calls digital its top priority in the U.S.

    • Piper Jaffray boosted its price target on TGT to $86.
    • Morgan Stanley sticks with a Positive stance on the company.
    • Some analysts think Target's digital scale is formidable enough to put some pricing pressure on Best Buy (NYSE:BBY), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS), and Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT).

    • Retail space continues to open up as more companies look to trim their store counts or reposition themselves in front of mergers or bankruptcies.
    • In some cases, the transition is based on repositioning assets to online fulfillment centers.
    • A quick scan indicates Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD), J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP), RadioShack (NYSE:RSH), Dollar Tree (NASDAQ:DLTR), Wet Seal (NASDAQ:WTSL), Macy's (NYSE:M), Haverty Furniture (NYSE:HVT), Bon-Ton Stores (NASDAQ:BONT), Aeropostale (NYSE:ARO), Rent-A-Center (NASDAQ:RCII), and Wolverine Worldwide (NYSE:WWW) are unloading properties.
    • Analysts have warned the flooded market could lead to some disappointing transaction prices or lease rates for the companies involved.
    • What to watch: A merger between Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS) and Office Depot (NASDAQ:ODP) or a major retooling from Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) this year could add to the tally.
