Department store operator Kohl’s Corporation (KSS) on Monday caught some positive commentary from analysts at Goldman Sachs.
The firm maintained its “Neutral” rating on KSS but lifted its price target from $51 to $53, suggesting a 6% upside to the stock’s Friday closing price of $50.03.
A Goldman analyst commented, “We still believe that a sustained turn at Kohl’s requires more time to correct (reflected in our Neutral rating); however, we think the combination of easy year-ago comparisons, a weather break, JCP’s share donation, sharper prices and dampened investor expectations will likely create a reasonable risk/reward scenario over the next few months.”
Kohl’s shares rose 99 cents, or +2%, in premarket trading Monday.
