Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) Traders Eye Uncharted Territory (SchaeffersResearch)
Shares of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) came within a chip shot of their record high yesterday. This positive price action prompted one group of investors to scoop up the stock’s June 77.50 calls, betting on a trek into uncharted territory for the blue chip. Of the 4,797 contracts traded at this near-the-money call, 90% changed hands at the ask price, implied volatility ticked higher, and open interest added 4,225 positions overnight. Summing it all up, it appears a number of these contracts were bought to open. …As such, WMT’s Schaeffer’s put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 0.68 ranks lower than 97% of similar readings taken in the last year. In other words, short-term speculators have rarely been more call-heavy toward the stock.

Target Corporation (TGT), Nordstrom, Inc. (JWN) & More: Three Solid Dividends From Everyday Brands (InsiderMonkey)
Long-term investors know two important things: Dividends are excellent and good companies are built to last. In a rapidly changing marketplace, those two factors can be difficult to find in the same company. Some high-yielding dividends are high simply because the companies are slowly sinking. On the other hand, some good, rock-steady brands pay horrible dividends. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t find a diamond in the rough every now and then. Here are three companies with solid dividends that aren’t going anywhere. …Looking through who’s paying out, I’m struck by Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT), Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE:JWN), and Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS). Now that’s not to say that they’ve got the highest yields in the market, but they have a decent yield, and I trust that in 15 or 50 years, they’ll all be around to keep the cash coming in.

Today’s Research on Dollar General, Target, Dollar Tree, and Costco Wholesale (SacBee)
Consumer spending in the U.S. is expected to remain robust in 2013, driven by improving labor market. Notwithstanding last week’s disappointing data, the labor market has been showing signs of improvement. Consumer confidence has also been boosted by a strong recovery in the housing market. For discount and variety stores such as Dollar General Corp. (NYSE:DG), Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT), Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ:DLTR), and Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST), the rebound in consumer spending augurs well. On Monday, discount and variety stores stocks ended mostly higher, tracking gains in the broad market.
