NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Michael Kors Holding Ltd (KORS) are up 0.7% to $46.25 in early market trading Thursday, despite the luxury goods retailer receiving downgrades at several firms this morning following its disappointing fiscal 2015 fourth-quarter earnings results.
Analysts at Goldman Sachs downgraded the fashion brand to "neutral" from "buy" this morning. The firm also lowered its price target to $50 from its prior $93, saying it lacks sales visibility.
Telsey Advisory also lowered its rating to "market perform" from "outperform" with the same $50 objective, citing its lower sales outlook.
And, Stephens downgraded Michael Kors to "equal weight" from "overweight." The firm cut its price target to $52 from $85, due to negative North American same store sales and weak guidance.

Separately, Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates MICHAEL KORS HOLDINGS LTD as a Buy with a ratings score of B-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate MICHAEL KORS HOLDINGS LTD (KORS) a BUY. This is driven by a few notable strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself."
