Goldman Sachs: Ralph Lauren Still a “Conviction Buy” (RL)

Share |

Apparel maker Ralph Lauren Corp ( RL ) on Tuesday caught some further positive commentary from analysts at Goldman Sachs.

Goldman Sachs reiterated its "Conviction Buy List" rating and $200 price target RL shares, which suggests a 13% upside to the stock's Monday closing price of $176.78.

The analyst said RL "should deliver margin-accretive growth in the near and long term," noting that "While RL's valuation of 22X gives pause to some investors, we believe current EPS estimates understate the true near-term and long-term EPS potential and therefore the stock is more compelling than it seems."

Ralph Lauren shares fell $2.67, or 1.5%, in early trading Tuesday.
