PVH Corp. (NYSE:PVH) was downgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “buy” rating to a “hold” rating in a report issued on Tuesday.
According to Zacks, “PVH Corp. has outperformed the industry year to date driven by its superb earnings history and brand strength. The company posted better-than-expected earnings and sales results for second-quarter fiscal 2017. While sales marked its fourth consecutive beat, earnings retained its positive surprise trend for the 13th straight time. Results continued to gain from solid momentum at its Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger brands, particularly in the international regions. Further, the company raised earnings outlook for fiscal 2017. However, concerns regarding the volatile macroeconomic and geopolitical environment remain. While currency rates improved in second quarter, currency headwinds are expected to hurt fiscal 2017 earnings by 20 cents per share. Apart from this, a volatile retail scenario and greater marketing costs may hurt performance. Nonetheless, the company’s efforts to keep pace with the evolving consumer trends bode well.”
