Kohl's stock recommended
August 24, 2001,
New York — Days after Kohl's Corp. reported that second-quarter profits shot up by more than a third (see story on page 21), retail analyst George Strachan of Goldman Sachs put the red-hot retailer on his list of recommended stocks. He called Kohl's the highest-quality organic growth story in the entire broadlines sector.
Strachan forecast long-term earnings per-share growth at 24 percent, sharply higher than the average return on investment on a retail industry stock. Strachan said Kohl's occupies "a secure niche in the large and underserved $100 billion middle market for apparel."
Strachan set a 12-month price target of $70 for the retailer's stock, almost 28 percent higher than its recent trading price.
