Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) shares slipped another 1.6% on Thursday and have dropped more than 12.6% since the furor erupted a week ago Wednesday. That amounts to $9.3 billion in market value.

Shares have fallen for six consecutive days over that period, their longest losing streak since December 2022 and the worst six-day stretch since the six days ending May 25, 2022, when shares fell 27.34%.

Why the Target Shares Weekly Options Trade was Executed?

Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) is the most recent company to be dragged into the supposed "woke war," currently rampaging across social media. Against the backdrop of a trans-friendly Bud Light promotion and Disney's ongoing battle with right-wing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, the recent rally against Target's selection of LGBTQ+ merchandise could have the company worried.

Recent posts on social media have criticized Target's exceptionally-inclusive line of LGBTQ+ clothing. The uproar mainly focuses on kids' clothes or swimsuits and undergarments designed for transgender customers.

** OPTION TRADE: Buy TGT JUN 02 2023 145.000 PUTS - price at last close was $1.84 - adjust accordingly.

Target Feels Threatened.....

"For more than a decade, Target has offered an assortment of products aimed at celebrating Pride Month," a company spokesperson said. "Since introducing this year’s collection, we've experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and well-being while at work. Given these volatile circumstances, we are making adjustments to our plans, including removing items that have been at the center of the most significant confrontational behaviour."

“Tuck friendly” women’s swimsuits, which allow trans women who have not had gender-affirming operations to conceal their private parts, were among Target's Pride items that garnered the most attention.

Adding fuel to the fire, the retailer's Gay Pride collection has been linked to a controversial designer: Abprallen's Erik Carnell, who is an outspoken Satanist whose brand features occult imagery and messages like "Satan respects pronouns" on brand apparel, Fox News Digital reported separately.

He is also known for aggressive messaging and phrases, including "Burn down the cis-tem," which have been featured on the website along with one that says "homophobe headrest" with an image of a guillotine.

The confrontations in Target stores are taking place as state legislatures introduce a record number of bills targeting LGBTQ+ individuals across the country. Some advocacy groups have criticized Target's response — calling on the retailer to not back down to hate-filled backlash and reaffirm its support with the LGBTQ+ community.

There are close to 500 anti-LGBTQ+ bills that have gone before state legislatures since the start of this year, an unprecedented number, according to the American Civil Liberties Union. Those efforts focus on health, particularly gender-affirming health care for transgender youth, and education. State legislatures are also pushing to prevent discussions in school regarding sexuality and gender identity.

Further Original Catalysts for the TGT Weekly Options Trade…..

Target has found itself in hot water again over its gay pride collection, this time because of its partnership with a controversial designer.

The major retailer partnered with U.K.-based brand Abprallen to sell merchandise with pro-LGBTQ messages to celebrate Pride month. A search on Target's website finds some of the items.

While the company was already under a microscope over its "tuck-friendly" swimsuits, some social media users were angered to discover that Abprallen's designer Eric Carnell is also an outspoken Satanist whose brand features occult imagery and messages like "Satan respects pronouns" on brand apparel.

Abprallen also sells merchandise with aggressive messages attacking critics. Pins with the phrases "heteronormativity is a plague," and "burn down the cis-tem" are featured on the website along with one that says "homophobe headrest" with an image of a guillotine.

Erik Carnell, the transgender designer behind the brand, explained in an Instagram post that Satan represents "passion, pride and liberty" and "loves all LGBT+ people."

The polarizing partnership caused an uproar from conservatives and parents rights advocates on social media.

Abprallen is currently selling two products on Target's website, a messenger bag that says "Too queer for here," and a sweatshirt that says "Cure transphobia."

Target Pride swimsuits boast "tuck-friendly construction" and "extra crotch coverage," presumably to accommodate male genitalia, even if they are made in an otherwise female style.

Less than a week after the release of the podcast, Target women’s style swimsuits that advertise "tuck-friendly construction" to hide male genitalia went viral, angering some customers and igniting outrage online. In the days since, customers have laid into the brand for its pride displays in stores across the country, particularly the display of pride-themed children’s items and baby onesies which have irked many customers. 


Target Corp. has issued a recall on a massive amount of products.

A large recall was done over the popular baby swing the MamaRoo and RockaRoo. The safety recall created a concern of the strap from the swing that could cause entanglement and strangulation. 4moms, the maker of the MamaRoo and RockaRoo, issued the recall after there was one death involving a 10-month-old that died from asphyxiation from the strap, and another 10-month-old suffered injuries from the strap.

The retail giant issued another recall but from the home décor aisle this time. Target sold about 4.9 million of Threshold Glass Jar Candles that pose a risk to the consumer while the candle is lit. The glass jar has broken in some cases, which caused lacerations and burns on the victims. Target has received at least 137 reports of the candle jar breaking while in use. Only six injuries have been reported. Target reportedly sold these candles nationwide and through its website starting back in August 2019 until March 2023.

Critics compared Target to Bud Light, after the brand faced backlash for partnering with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.

The campaign account for Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., wrote, "Bud light: shocks and insults their customers. Target: hold my beer."

The reaction seemingly worried Target management, who took "emergency" action Friday directing some managers and district senior directors to tamp down the Pride sections in their stores over fears of re-creating a "Bud Light situation."

Target’s fifty day simple moving average is $159.96 and its 200 day simple moving average is $160.86.
