By Carrie Williams

In a report released today, Brian Nagel from Oppenheimer maintained a Buy rating on Tiffany & Co (NYSE: TIF), with a price target of $152. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $111.45.

Nagel commented:

“Recently, in a report entitled in TIF Here), we lifted our rating on on prospects for further strategic refreshment at the company and moderating near-term market sentiment embedded within shares. TIF has traded lower lately amid a broad rate-driven market sell-off and concerns of the Chinese government regulating the flow of foreign purchased products into the country. We do not necessarily view these concerns as misplaced. That said, we view the underlying recovery at TIF as very much intact, and expect as internal disciplines/drivers continue to take hold, the brand will prove increasingly well positioned to contend with unfavorable external factors nearer term.”
