Jefferies reiterated a Hold rating on Guess (NYSE: GES), and raised the price target to $17.00 (from $16.00), following the company's 2Q earnings report. GES' EPS beat was driven by a top-line improvement in Europe and solid expense control.

Analyst Randal Konik commented, "GES reported a 2Q beat, driven by strength in Europe and solid cost control. While FY'17 has been designated a 'reset year', we see signs that CEO Victor Herrero's plans are starting to take hold, despite multiple external challenges in the environment. Further, we see the improvement in Europe as a positive sign that int'l weakness may be bottoming for the group. Maintain Hold, PT to $17."
