PVH Corp. operates as an apparel company in the United States and internationally. PVH has a market cap of $9.0 billion and is part of the consumer non-durables industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 31.9, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 7.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.

TheStreet Ratings rates PVH as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, reasonable valuation levels, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Bridgford Foods Corporation ( BRID), down 8.1%, Agria Corporation ( GRO), down 6.8%, Brunswick Corporation ( BC), down 5.6% and Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company S.A ( OCCH), down 5.2%.
