Earlier this year, Amazon shook up the traditional grocery retail space with its blockbuster $13.7 billion acquisition of organic food chain Whole Foods Market.
Target isn't the only company analysts expect to be snapped up by Amazon in 2018.
Loup Ventures' Gene Munster is predicting the internet e-commerce company will buy Target in 2018.
Munster pointed to what he called shared demographics among the two major retailers and the "manageable but comprehensive store count" of Target, which would give Amazon physical locations across the country from which it could operate.
Loup Ventures admits that the timing of such a deal is hard to pin down, but "seeing the value in the combination is easy".
A University of Washington professor believes people should pump the brakes on any talk of Amazon buying Target.

Kotha also questioned whether this potential deal would change anything in the battle of Amazon vs. Walmart. The Amazon-Whole Foods combination could help simplify Target's re-modeling strategy, as there is a considerable overlap of customers between Amazon Prime subscribers and Target. "However, for any acquisition to work, Target needs to bring something to Amazon that Amazon can not achieve itself".
He brushed off concerns over competition, telling Bloomberg Radio: "Investors would view this as Amazon taking over the world, and that's a good thing". The commander-in-chief would certainly be vocal in his opposition to any deal Amazon might want to make, but whether that would be enough to kill a deal is arguable.
A union would also enable Amazon to leverage Target's 1,834 U.S. stores in its battle with Walmart, which has more than 4,700 U.S. stores. Last month, CFRA bank analyst Ken Leon predicted that it will purchase a small or mid-size bank.
