  • Piper Jaffray Downgrades Ralph Lauren to "Neutral" (RL)

    Piper Jaffray reported on Wednesday that it has downgraded Ralph Lauren Corp (RL) to "Neutral." The firm has cut its rating on RL from "Overweight" to "Neutral," and has lowered its price target on the company from $200 to $170. This new price target suggests a 6% upside from the stock's current price of $159.64. An analyst from the firm noted: “As we think about the RL stock (not the company) over the next 6-12 months, we are stepping to the sidelines, moving our rating from OW to Neutral ($170 PT). To be clear, we view RL as a core holding for the longer-term oriented investor (2 yrs+) as we believe global growth initiatives in China, accessories & the prospects for accelerated sq-ftage (Polo stores in Europe) will create margin expansion opportunities over time. That said, in the absence of a compelling apparel spending environment and with a multi-year investment cycle underway, we believe earnings upside could be more limited. We believe money flow will favor equities but expect investors will pay up for visibility in beat & raise stories as we navigate through the evolving global retail landscape.” Ralph Lauren shares were down 92 cents, or 0.57% during Wednesday morning trading. The stock is up 7% YTD.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Ralph Lauren Corp (RL) have a 1.00% yield based on Wednesday morning's price of $159.64.

  • ISI Group Downgrades Ralph Lauren; Lowers PT (RL)

    ISI Group reported on Thursday that it has cut its rating on apparel company Ralph Lauren Corp (RL) . The firm has downgraded RL from a "Strong Buy" to a "Buy," and has lowered the company's price target from $220 to $190. This price target suggests an 8% increase from the stock's current price of $175.30. Analyst Omar Saad noted, “although we remain firm believers in Ralph Lauren's enormous long-term growth and margin opportunities, we are downgrading the shares to Buy from Strong Buy, not because of a surprising and impactful negative inflection this quarter (it was actually pretty pedestrian relative to guidance), but simply because the shares may continue to be in a relative lull before the next big multi-year phase of growth ramps up. Disappointingly, revenue expansion keeps lagging other powerful global brand stocks we cover (e.g. Nike, Kors, Fossil, Prada, Burberry, etc.), and it may be a few quarters before the next big revenue drivers are large enough or within grasp enough to matter: China, accessories, e-commerce, and the Polo store rollout. While the company has painstakingly built out the ultra high-end elements of the brand the last several years (Collection, Purple Label, Black Label, and flagship stores), a strategy critical to global brand elevation, we wish management was more willing and ready to open up this proverbial Trojan Horse and leverage the halo effect from these investments by unleashing the hugely profitable and scaleable aspirational luxury segment of the brand (i.e. <$500 price point) across all regions and channels.” Ralph Lauren shares were up $2.70, or 1.56%, during Thursday morning trading. The stock is up 17% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of Ralph Lauren Corp (RL) have a 0.91% yield based on Thursday morning's price of $175.30. Ralph Lauren Corp (RL) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
