Strong Third Quarter Margins Indicate TJX’s Strength Amid Inflation, but the Shares Seem Expensive

Zain Akbari, CFA Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Zain Akbari, CFA |

Our $62 per share valuation of narrow-moat TJX should rise by a mid-single-digit percentage, reflecting strong third-quarter fiscal 2022 profitability and the time value of money. Although we are encouraged by TJX’s recent pricing moves, our long-term targets remain intact (mid-single-digit percentage sales growth, low-double-digit adjusted operating margins, expected on average long term). We suggest investors await a more attractive entry point, as we believe the shares’ trading price leaves little room for error.
