    • Deutsche Bank hikes its PT on PVH to $145 ($125 previous) and reiterates a Buy rating ahead of the company's Q2 results announcement later today.
    • Analyst Greg Poole expects an in-line Q2, a modest raise, and continued long-term growth. Poole notes, "Despite a recent slowdown in U.S. apparel industry trends, the market should continue to like the PVH story given: (1) potential synergies from the Warnaco integration, (2) out-year payoffs to this year's investments, and (3) a high-quality play on global growth (particularly if Europe is bottoming)."

    • Retail traffic to U.S. stores has declined in 8 out of the last 10 weeks, according to data compiled from ShopperTrak.
    • Though a few on-trend firms such as Michael Kors (KORS +0.1%) and Express (EXPR +8.5%) are still firing on all cylinders, and a heat wave in the Midwest has had an effect, the overall trend for the back-to-school season and holiday season looks weak.
    • Analysts also think consumers are likely to pick up their reliance on deals as discretionary spending on housing and automobiles "crowds out" normal outlays.

    • Goldman's Lindsay Drucker Mann resumes TIF, RL at Neutral, PVH at Buy.
    • Tiffany & Company (TIF +0.1%) is resumed at Neutral (six-month PT $84) as optimism regarding a "compelling long-term earnings runway ... is tempered by near-term earnings headwinds, including currency and an early-stage US turnaround effort."
    • Ralph Lauren (RL -0.8%) is resumed at Neutral (six-month PT $205). The retailer has delivered "consistent top-line and EPS growth" for a decade against a "backdrop ... loaded with fashion and execution risk."
    • Phillips Van Heusen (PVH +2%) is resumed at Buy (PT $165). The company has built "a portfolio of global reaching, scale brands [and] has proven itself superior to mature apparel peers in delivering shareholder value via organic and acquisitive growth."

    A slight acceleration in retail sales in China during May up to a 12.9% growth pace bodes well for high-end sellers looking to keep up momentum in the nation. U.S. firms looking for double-digit sales growth to continue in China include Coach (COH), Tiffany (TIF), Ralph Lauren (RL), Michael Kors (KORS), V.F. Corp (VFC), and Warnaco Group (WRC).

    The LVMH read-through to luxury stocks: The LVMH report is consistent with the latest batch of retail sales data from China which indicates solid growth is still out there - but just not at the frothy levels of years past. An important trend to watch is that demand in Europe is getting considerable support from the steady string of tourists pouring in from China which magnifies the impact that Chinese consumers have on the sector.
