Target Corporation Company Snapshot
Target Corporation operates in the Variety stores sector.

Sales Analysis. During the second calendar quarter of 2021, sales at Target totalled $25.16 billion. This is an increase of 9.5% from the $22.98 billion in sales at the company during the second quarter of 2020. During the first two calendar quarters of 2021, sales totalled $49.36 billion, which is 15.9% higher than through the first two quarters of 2020. During the previous 17 quarters, sales at Target have increased compared with the same quarter in the previous year. Sales at Target appear to have some seasonality: during each of the previous 8 calendar years, sales have been highest during the fourth quarter, which has accounted for between 29.3% and 31.7% of the annual calendar year sales. (For the vast majority of American retailers, the last quarter of the year usually has the highest sales). Target reported sales of $93.56 billion for the fiscal year ending January of 2021. This represents an increase of 19.8% versus 2020, when the company's sales were $78.11 billion. This was the fourth straight year of sales growth at Target. Sales of Other Revenue saw an increase that was more than double the company's growth rate: sales were up 63.9% in 2021, from $302.00 million to $495.00 million. Target also saw significant increases in sales in Home Furnishings and D Cor (up 26.3% to $18.23 billion) and Hardlines (up 32.0% to $16.63 billion) . Not all segments of Target experienced an increase in sales in 2021: sales of Credit Card Profit Sharing fell 2.1% to $666.00 million. (However, this segment's sales were only a very small portion of the company's overall sales).
