Jefferies reiterated a Buy rating and $116.00 price target on Helen of Troy (NASDAQ: HELE) ahead of the company's 2Q report.

Analyst Trevor Young commented, "HELE will report F2Q17 results on Thursday (10/6) AMC. We worry that beauty may worsen in F2Q as lackluster sub-category growth and ~1,500bps tougher compares weigh, while nutrition may not yet be turning a corner. We are ~1% (~$4m) below cons. rev. and less aggressive on GM (+195bps vs. +215bps), but more constructive on SG&A discipline (-$2m vs. cons.). We're subsequently +2% ahead of adj. EBITDA and +3% ahead on adj. EPS ($1.18 vs. $1.14)."
