MINNETONKA, Minn. -- Numbers due out this week will paint a better picture of where Target and Best Buy sit heading into the holidays.
Target is set to announce its third quarter earnings Wednesday morning. Best Buy will announce its numbers on Thursday.
Dale Kurschner, with Twin Cities Business, says he expects Target's shares to be up and revenues to be down. Meanwhile, Best Buy stocks have dipped slightly in recent days. Kurschner says that could be good news for consumer's wallets.
"The more retailers indicate potential weakness going into the holiday season, the more aggressive they're going to be with their discounts," he says.
