The Schwab Target series offers a fairly solid lineup of underlying funds. However, the series' subadvisor oversight team lost its leader and is of modest size, the underlying holdings have seen fund and manager turnover, and sub-asset-class adjustments have created uncertainty about its prospects. The series’ single share class earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral.
