5/20/2015: Shares of Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) were up more than 1.4% on news that the company reported a stronger first quarter profit than Wall Street analysts had expected. The company reported adjusted quarterly earnings of $1.10 per share, well ahead of the $0.92 it earned in the same quarter in 2014. The company beat back concerns that a harsh winter or its decision to exit Canada had any impact on its performance. The news is also very positive as its chief rival Wal-Mart Stores (NYSE: WMT) saw shares decline after reporting weak quarterly earnings on Tuesday.
