Canaccord Genuity maintains a 'Hold' on Columbia Sportswear (NASDAQ: COLM) price target of $50.00.

Analyst, Camilo Lyon, said, "COLM’s Q2 EPS results of $(0.23) beat our $(0.30) estimate largely due to 70bps less gross margin degradation and an SG&A dollar decline of 1%, which drove 432bps of leverage. A lower tax rate (26% vs. 40% estimate) also helped results. Sales were modestly better by $2M vs. our $280M estimate. While we continue to be impressed by COLM’s expense control and believe the company has unique and innovative technologies to monetize in the coming years, sales visibility remains clouded through the balance of the year, European macro concerns persist, and carryover winter inventory remains to be worked down."

This all makes sense, no retail clothing should have lofty figures for June and I for one belive they should predict a loss and everyone should be fine with that
