Profits fall 43% at Target as consumers dump ‘politically correct’ companies

Target, who continues to marginalize their customers by pandering to the likes of Black Lives Matter and the Transgender movement has announced their worst earnings in years. According to the Chicago Tribune profits have fallen 43%, far below the expectations of Wall Street.

Target, stung by the mass migration by its customers online and elsewhere, said its profit plummeted 43 percent during the most recent quarter as sales at its stores weakened. The coming year doesn’t look much better: Its outlook for the first quarter and all of 2017 were far below what industry analysts had been expecting.

Shares tumbled more than 13 percent to a two-year low Tuesday, and the numbers in Target’s report rattled Wall Street, dragging down Wal-Mart, Macy’s and other retailers.

Retail on Tuesday was the worst performing sector in the Standard & Poor’s 500.

All traditional retailers have struggled as Amazon.com and other online retailers draw shoppers away, but Target has been unable to keep pace with Wal-Mart Stores Inc., which posted another quarter of higher customer traffic and same-store sales. At a meeting with analysts Tuesday, Target CEO Brian Cornell said he hasn’t seen as many troubled retailers since the recession nearly a decade ago.

    I figured Target would go bust sooner or later with their PC crap. Goes to show you not EVERYONE goes for the bathroom baloney or the other PC baloney like no genders for toys or clothes. They just shot themselves in both feet and wonder why they are failing? The PC garbage and standing at the forefront of this insanity had only one outcome…..FAILURE…..complete failure.
