13:00 EDTTGTEarnings Preview: Target cuts Q2 EPS view to reflect flat U.S. segment SSS
Target (TGT) is scheduled to report second quarter results before the market open on Wednesday, August 20, with a conference call scheduled for 10:30 am ET. Target offers merchandise at discounted prices through its retail stores and online business. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 79c on revenue of $17.38B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 78c-91c on revenue of $17.28B-$17.5B. LAST QUARTER: Target reported first quarter adjusted EPS of 70c on revenue of $17.05B, against estimates for 71c and $17.01B, respectively. U.S. comparable sales decreased 0.3% in Q1, near the high end of the expected range. Target was unable to estimate future expenses related to the data breach that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2013, but said costs may have a "material adverse effect" on Q2 and FY14 results. NEWS: In July, Target named Brian Cornell as chairman and Chief Executive Officer, effective August 12. Cornell most recently served as the CEO of PepsiCo (PEP) Americas Foods. Chief Financial Officer and former interim CEO John Mulligan previously told CNBC that he would be "happy" transitioning back to CFO role. The company cut its Q2 adjusted EPS guidance to "within a range around 78c" from 85c-$1.00, which excluded approximately 2c related to the expected reduction of its beneficial interest asset, as well as any net expenses related to the data breach. The updated guidance reflects U.S. Segment essentially flat comparable sales with lower-than-expected EBITDA margin driven by promotional markdowns, as guests continue to spend cautiously and focus on value in the current environment, and Canadian segment's somewhat softer-than-expected sales combined with the impact of continued investments to clear excess inventory. The Q2 results are also expected to include gross expenses of $148M related to the December 2013 data breach. Mulligan commented that the environment in both the U.S. and Canada "continues to be challenging, and results arenít yet where they need to be," but noted that the retailer is making progress in efforts to drive U.S. sales and traffic and improve Canadian operations. Target plans to extend the hours at over 50% of its U.S. locations in an effort to increase the number of customers who shop later in the day, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing a spokesperson. STREET RESEARCH: Goldman downgraded Target to Neutral from Buy and cut its price target to $59 from $65 to reflect estimate cuts following the Q2 pre-announcement, lack of catalysts, and e-commerce devaluation of general merchandise retailers. Baird thinks that Target may see better results later in 2014 and could restart its share buybacks at some point in the second half of the year, but sees stiff competition in Target's space. Wells Fargo wrote that the costs related to the data breach are on track to come in well below the $1B that some had initially feared. PRICE ACTION: Target shares are up almost 2% over the past three months. In intra-day trading ahead of tomorrow's earnings report, shares are up more than 1% to $59.35.

Longer base breakouts typically persist for some time following the break. At current price next resistance is at $3.98. Support is at $3.50. For the breakout to remain valid, share price needs to close today well above that $3.50 mark.
