Currently there are nine analysts that rate PVH a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and one rates it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates PVH as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth and attractive valuation levels. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.
