"The central holding of our upgrade of COH to BUY on August 19, 2011 (COH is up 51% vs. 19% for the S&P 500) was predicated on what we viewed as an underappreciated growth opportunity in both China and Men's," KeyBanc Capital Markets analysts wrote in a May 10 report. "Our enthusiasm for both has increased given recent operational performance, and we believe that both will help provide long-term sustainable growth. From a more near-term perspective, we think that the forthcoming Legacy launch and replatforming will bring a renewed sense of excitement in the store. Finally, recent moves to simplify pricing in the outlet stores should drive better long-term operating margins as well as improve the customer shopping experience. We reiterate our $88 price target."

"We are raising our price objective on CNS to $39 from $38, as CNS has posted modest market appreciation across its funds while other public managers face market losses," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a May 16 report. "Mutual fund inflows and encouraging trends for the subadvisory channel also lead us to raise our target multiple slightly, to 21.3x, based on a 15% premium in normal markets."
