Will Target's Lilly Pulitzer Heat Translate To Grocery?

Yesterday
Looks like things may finally be looking up for Target after a tough haul including security breaches and layoffs. The long-anticipated debut of the Lilly Pulitzer line at Target sold out across all retail channels this weekend, to the great excitement of many and the disappointment of some. Limited-release items turned up on eBay at huge price premiums just hours after sellout, since Target has been clear most items will not be replenished, creating more buzz than the retailer has seen in a good long time. Target’s Lilly Pulitzer rollout wasn’t limited to Pulitzer’s iconic shift dresses, but included kids’ ... by Kathleen Kusek

Panera Bread Is Making A Big Strategic Mistake

Yesterday
Panera’s (NASDAQ:PNRA) decision to boost its share buyback -- and sell and refranchise 73 stores -- is a big strategic mistake, in our opinion. It will saddle the company with debt, undermine future profitability, and distract its leadership from competing effectively against Starbucks, Chipotle, and the like. Stock buybacks are a good thing when they take place at a time when companies are thriving, even if they are financed with borrowed funds (e.g.Apple). But they are a bad thing when they come at a time when the company's momentum has slowed down, as is the case with Panera. As it can be ... by Panos Mourdoukoutas
