(Reuters) - Target Corp (NYSE: TGT) on Wednesday announced a new $5 billion share buyback plan.
The retailer said it would begin repurchasing shares under the new plan upon completion of its current $10 billion program, which is expected before the end of fiscal 2016 in January.
Target also declared a dividend of 60 cents per common share for the fourth quarter, unchanged from the third quarter.
