Shares are unchanged year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are 16 analysts that rate Coach a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and eight rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Coach as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, expanding profit margins and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, DS Healthcare Group ( DSKX), down 6.6%, Mercer International ( MERC), down 4.6%, Deckers Outdoor Corporation ( DECK), down 3.9%, and Verso Paper ( VRS), down 3.8%, were all laggards within the consumer non-durables industry with Nike ( NKE) being today's consumer non-durables industry laggard.
