Target market cap now down $10.5 billion in wake of boycott


At the close of trading on Tuesday, the boycott-induced direct decline in Target's market cap was $9.2 billion.
By the end of this week, that exceeded $10 billion.


The American Family Association's pledge to boycott Target because of its policy to allow men into women's bathrooms, and vice versa, has reached 1.3 million signers, and Target's stock (TGT) continues to suffer compared to that of its natural competitors.

I'm not so sure about that.

I'm just following the story and see how it plays out.

I stumbled on couple back story's about Target.

Now, I'm understanding what the real underlying motive is.

Target was already in doomsday before the new CEO that has been recruited outside of Target's executive staff.

Target's motive is deceiving for profits.

Why you start boycott Apple, and other company are focus on transgender?

Maybe it's time focus on wal-mart boycott? If target bankrupty. Wal-mart is happy and higher price?

@ Davidbugs

Their boycott is not directed at transgenders.

Target is using this as a marketing tactic for profits, with the objective to boost their market share at the expense of infringing on women and little girls privacy without spending mega bucks to accommodate without the expense of building family facilities.

Target has a laundry lists of failures and all they could come up with to turn their store profits around is playing in the bathrooms and people's genitalia.

Know what? How about you don't worry about infringing on my privacy? This doesn't worry me at all since I've been using bathrooms with transgender people for almost 45 years now. Why not focus your misplaced bizarre attention on something of some value?

Note to myself: If Tcoastergirl ever in distress in public, shopping, etc. ignore help screams. :roll: btw, I scrolled
up and I just don't see any where, where it was written calling you by name as if I were singling you out.

Tcoastergirl FYI: The Target story is a national story that Corporate America is watching very close as
well as stockholders and over the counter day traders.

Just so you know. I don't have a problem with transgender people TYVM. Matter of fact their is couple
that are transgenders that comes to my yard sale all the time ( They are blood brothers at birth ) and they
look for unique antique items and they collect art paintings too.

Yep, transgenders been around for many many years and never been a problem till Obama and big business
trying to make it a problem.

Oh, I'm never been misplaced, I'm very focused of the political agenda that's behind Target's Bizarre doings.

As for something of some value as you put it... Ok how about this news story.

Target Sues Man Who Saved 13 Y/O Girl from Being Stabbed to Death. Does this 13 Y/O girl's life have value?

Here in Australia the right-wing conservative government has proposed a law that will imprison &/or heavily fine anyone who calls for, or publicly supports, boycotting a business.

The only reason that it hasn't yet become law (and now probably never will due to the upcoming election) was the conservatives could not get the numbers in the Senate. The Labor Party (centre-left), Greens (left-wing) & several independents refused to support the legislation.

So, the Australia right wing is like America left wing radicals that wants to take the rights away
from the people and be dependent upon the gov't, where one serves on their knees with a
boot up against their head.

Well I fail to see how protecting people's rights is a problem. So much of what goes on in the US just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to the rest of the world looking in from the outside. Things that you (the collective 'you' not singular 'you') seem convinced is gong to bring hell in a hand basket and the world to end has usually happened in other parts of the world and we've managed to go along our merry ways quite happily without imploding.

That's how we are in the US. If we don't protect and defend our rights, then we become like other countries where
people have lost their rights b/c they didn't stand up to keep their rights.

There is less and less every day that happens in this country that makes any sense at all to me. It's a runaway train on its way to Crazytown. It does not make sense to the population still capable of independent thought on the inside looking out, either. And it is only going to get worse.....so much worse....after the next election, because it looks like we will have a choice between a guffawing buffoon and a soulless ice queen. Rather terrifying, actually.
