Target Stock Options

Target Corporation was in the news a year ago when hackers stole forty million credit card numbers plus seventy million phone numbers and addresses from Target servers. Bloomberg reported on how Target missed warnings.

The biggest retail hack in U.S. history wasn’t particularly inventive, nor did it appear destined for success. In the days prior to Thanksgiving 2013, someone installed malware in Target’s (TGT) security and payments system designed to steal every credit card used at the company’s 1,797 U.S. stores. At the critical moment-when the Christmas gifts had been scanned and bagged and the cashier asked for a swipe-the malware would step in, capture the shopper’s credit card number, and store it on a Target server commandeered by the hackers.

More than 90 lawsuits have been filed against Target by customers and banks for negligence and compensatory damages. That’s on top of other costs, which analysts estimate could run into the billions. Target spent $61 million through Feb. 1 responding to the breach, according to its fourth-quarter report to investors. It set up a customer response operation, and in an effort to regain lost trust, Steinhafel promised that consumers won’t have to pay any fraudulent charges stemming from the breach. Target’s profit for the holiday shopping period fell 46 percent from the same quarter the year before; the number of transactions suffered its biggest decline since the retailer began reporting the statistic in 2008.

And now Target is recovering, except for closing all of their stores in Canada, after just a two year trial. Anyone who purchased puts with Target stock options at the time of the credit card fiasco made out like a bandit!

Better Sales but Target Closes Canada Stores

Target has made a nice recovery after the credit card fiasco. However, its two year trial in Canada did not pan out. Forbes writes about the cost of Target’s Canada exit.

Target TGT -0.06% reported stronger than expected fourth quarter earnings on Wednesday, helped in part by growing online sales, but posted a net loss on its decision to leave Canada.

Adjusted earnings came in at $1.50 per share, beating Wall Street consensus estimates of $1.46 per share. Excluding items, Target reported a loss of $5.59 per share, reflecting a $5.1 billion pre-tax loss related to its decision to pull out of Canada after just two years.

The company’s conclusion to give up on Canada, announced last month, came after an internal analysis showed their presence there wouldn’t be profitable for at least another six years.

Again there is room for profit with Target stock options as the retailer goes through big changes.
