About the Lawsuit
Target and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On May 18, 2022, the Company announced its Q1 2022 financial results, disclosing among other things, a decrease in operating income to $1.3 billion from $2.4 billion in the prior year, a 40% drop in adjusted earnings, and a decrease in gross margin of nearly 4.3%, with approximately 3% of that due to “the combined impact of impairments, markdowns, and other actions taken to rightsize our inventory position in categories that were too heavy,” as well as a decrease in full-year 2022 operating margin guidance to “a range centered around 6%” from a margin rate of 8% or higher.
On this news, shares of Target plummeted nearly 25% or $53.67 per share, or from a closing price of $215.28 per share on May 17, 2022, to a closing price of $161.61 per share on May 18, 2022.
The case is Perez v. Target Corporation, et al., No. 23-cv-00769.
