Cowen reiterated a Market Perform rating on Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF), and raised the price target to $74.00 (from $68.00), following the company's 2Q earnings report. TIF reported a worldwide comp decline of -9% C/C, partly attributed to lower tourist spending. However, a $0.12 EPS beat has Cowen encouraged with TIF's potential for improvement.

Analyst Oliver Chen commented, "Total comps of -9.0% C/C vs. Street's -7.8%, as most regions continued to see soft luxury spend by local & foreign tourists; but, we're encouraged by 2Q EPS +12c beat vs. Street on better-than-expected GM & less SG&A de-leverage, plus TIF maintaining full-year guidance & FCF outlook of at least $400mm despite tough macro backdrop. Reit. Market Perform w/ New $74PT."
