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

On the negative front, Fuwei Films (Holdings ( FFHL), down 7.8%, Superior Uniform Group ( SGC), down 5.5%, American Apparel ( APP), down 3.3% and Delta Apparel ( DLA), down 2.4% , were all laggards within the consumer non-durables industry with Fifth & Pacific Companies ( FNP) being today's consumer non-durables industry laggard.

Investors who are bullish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ( XLP) while those bearish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
