By Jason Carr

In a report released today, Susan Anderson from B.Riley FBR reiterated a Buy rating on Guess (NYSE: GES), with a price target of $29. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $21.49.

Anderson noted:

“We hosted two days of meetings for institutional clients with members of the Guess?, Inc. (GES) management, including CFO Sandeep Reddy and VP of Investor Relations Fabrice Benarouche. Meetings were upbeat and we believe management is executing across their strategy, including continued improvement in North America and expanding international penetration. Management is also seeing better consumer response to new product launches and we believe the brand should get a further boost from new collaborations with Pacsun that highlight Guess’s deep vintage catalog. Trends continue to be positive in 2Q for both international and the Americas. We believe there is a high probability GES returns to profitability in the Americas in 2018. We reiterate our Buy rating and $29 price target.”
