Jefferies analysts cut their price target on Body Central (NASDAQ: BODY) from $36 to $32, while maintaining their BUY rating.

Body Central is a mall-based specialty retailer that markets fast fashion merchandise at value prices to women primarily in their late teens and twenties Shares of BODY were near all-time highs prior to reporting earnings, but guidance did not deliver.

Jefferies analysts think BODY will trade down to 14x EPS, which is a meaningful discount to average multiples for growth retailers. Their $32 price target is based on 24x multiple of 2012 EPS and 10x EV/ EBITDA.

In a research note, an analyst said “We believe higher multiples are warranted due to business momentum.”
