One analyst thinks so and is predicting a high-profile acquisition in the coming year.

"I shop on Amazon and I shop at Target, so I don't know", said Gia Tebbs, of Observatory Hill.

Target and Amazon spokespersons did not respond to requests from the media to comment on the Loup Ventures analyst's prediction.

The post was full of good reasons why Amazon would want Target, but nothing much to justify why Target would want to throw in with Amazon. "It won't be as big as online, but it would be a measurable part" of the Amazon offering, he said. Besides, Target is no Whole Foods in terms of size and when it comes to the old activist investor burning platform. They have been aggressively promoting and giving prime memberships to first time moms and separately loading Prime Video with kid friendly content because of kind of the shopping presence that, uh, the wallet presence than a mom has.

It's shaping up to be a critical year for Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT), as rumors continue to swirl about a possible buyout from Amazon.com (AMZN) later in 2018.

Munster explained that Amazon would have no problem funding the deal.

Another analyst - Ken Leon from CFRA - expects the company to advance in the world of financial services in 2018, by purchasing a small-to-mid sized bank in 2018.
