Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates RALPH LAUREN CORP as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate RALPH LAUREN CORP (RL) a BUY. This is driven by some important positives, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. 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, reasonable valuation levels, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself."
