“Despite a more promotional retail environment, Kate Spade & Company had another strong quarter, with sales increases coming across both our North American and International segments,” said company CEO Craig Leavitt.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates KATE SPADE & CO as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate KATE SPADE & CO (KATE) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity, revenue growth and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including generally higher debt management risk, premium valuation and weak operating cash flow."
