President Donald Trump on Wednesday backed away from a proposal to tax capital gains indexed for inflation. His comment to reporters came a day after he said he was considering the move among other proposals to stimulate the economy. "I'm not looking to do that," since it's for higher-earning Americans, he said before departing the White House for a speech in Kentucky.

Gold ends flat, then moves lower in electronic trade after Fed minutes
Gold prices finished unchanged on Wednesday, after spending much of the session losing ground on the back of strength in benchmark U.S. stock indexes. After future prices settled, minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee's July meeting showed that Federal Reserve officials shied away from saying how many more easing steps they might be willing to support this year. In electronic trading, gold for December delivery was at $1,514.30 an ounce shortly after the meeting minutes. The contract had settled flat at $1,515.70 an ounce on Comex, ahead of the news.

Target's stock soars toward record rally and record high
Shares of Target Corp. rocketed 18.2% in morning trading Wednesday, which puts them on track for the biggest one-day gain in its history, after the retailer reported better-than-expected fiscal second-quarter results and raised its outlook. The stock was trading well above the Sept. 10, 2018 record close of $89.26 and all-time intraday high of $90.39. The stock's percentage gain would be bigger than the current record rally of 17.8% on Oct. 28, 2008. Target went public in October 1968. The current price gain of $15.61 is adding about $8 billion to the retailer's market capitalization, which would lift the market cap to about $51.9 billion. That's still well below the market cap of rival Walmart Inc. of $323.1 billion. Target's stock has gained 2.7% over the past 22% over the past months, while Walmart shares have advanced 18% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has tacked on 1.5%.

Here's why analysts think Estée Lauder's growth will continue
Stifel analysts think Estee Lauder Cos.'s growth is sustainable thanks to increasing use of beauty products, "trade-up" to luxury beauty brands, and growing access to Estée Lauder merchandise, notably online in China. Estée Lauder brands include La Mer, the namesake brand, and MAC, which all grew in the most recent quarter. Geographically, China was strong. "Notably, the tensions in Hong Kong, ~4% of sales, have not had a significant effect on Estée Lauder's business," analysts wrote. "Management noted that it is working to recover part of the tourist revenue in other markets and to reach those consumers online, as well as reaching the local consumer through target marketing and product innovation." Stifel rates Estée Lauder stock buy with a $210 price target, up from $205. Raymond James also raised its price target, to $216 from $181. Analysts there rate Estée Lauder stock outperform. And Wells Fargo lifted its price target to $190 from $175, with a market perform stock rating. Estée Lauder stock has gained 55.4% for the year to date while the S&P 500 index is up 16.6% for the period.
