Target Corp. (TGT) is a Dividend Champion that has increased their dividend every year for 44 consecutive years. Perhaps even better, Target offers prospective shareholders a dividend yield that is greater than what they can earn from a 10 year Treasury bond. But best of all, Target is trading at one of its lowest valuations in decades. You would have to look at its lows during the depths of the great recession of 2008 to have found it any cheaper than it is today. Moreover, the last time it was this inexpensive, shareholders were able to see their investment double off of its lows in just a little over a year’s time (February 27, 2009 price $28.31-April 30, 2010 price $56.87). Consequently, we believe that Target Corp. currently offers the trifecta of value, growth and yield.
