2.Target and Kohl’s are chains of stores that cater to customers who desire name-brand goods at lower prices. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Form 10-K filing rules require management of U.S. public companies to include background information about the business, as well as the most recent financial condition and results of operations. Access each company’s most recent Form 10-K. These can be obtained through the SEC website (www.sec.gov), or directly from the investor relations section of the Target (www.target.com) and Kohl’s (www.kohls.com) websites.
