Investors have endured a fair amount of pain as the S&P 500 has flirted with bear market territory in recent weeks. Among consumer-related stocks, three could be particularly attractive right now: Booking Holdings (NASDAQ: BKNG), Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM), and Target (NYSE: TGT). The bear market has taken its price to below $2,000 per share, down almost 30% from its high.
Target (TGT) closed the most recent trading day at $166.97, moving +0.51% from the previous trading session.
Shares of Target (NYSE: TGT) stock gained 16% in July according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. Target was flying high throughout the pandemic, posting some of its best performance ever. Comps increased 3% over last year in the 2022 first quarter, but earnings per share declined from $4.20 last year to $2.17 this year.
