On Tuesday, the financial world was buzzing with the news that investment analyst UBS Group had upped its price objective for PVH Corp. (NYSE:PVH) from $92.00 to $115.00. This latest development signifies a potential upside of 29.34% from the current stock price, making PVH an attractive proposition for investors looking for steady returns.

Revenue-wise, PVH generated $2.49 billion during the quarter compared to analysts’ expectations of $2.36 billion – a promising sign that the business remains healthy despite ongoing global economic uncertainties.
It is worth noting that whilst these strong results occurred during a highly volatile market period and COVID-19 was still causing havoc globally, one cannot forget how much work was done behind-the-scenes to keep operations running smoothly.
As those familiar with the company’s portfolio will know, PVH Corp primarily designs and markets branded dress shirts, neckwear, sportswear, jeans wear, intimate apparel, swim products, handbags and footwear.
Presently operating under six key segments (Calvin Klein North America; Calvin Klein International; Tommy Hilfiger North America; Tommy Hilfiger International; Heritage Brands Wholesale; Heritage Brands Retail), it appears as though the business has broadened enough thus reducing their risk accumulation in specific categories or segments that may experience shift-y sales fluctuations dependent upon consumer preferences.

All-in-all, this report and subsequent news surrounding PVH Corp. shows promise that some businesses still have secrets worth exploring even they are established companies operating amidst changing societal preferences and neo-economic dynamics caused by recessions, pandemics or all sorts of expedients not possible to afford or foresee despite rigorous long-term planning measures put forward by corporations alike.
