Mizuho Securities upgraded Gap, Inc. (NYSE: GPS) from Underperform to Neutral with a price target of $24.00 (from $17.00).

Analyst Betty Chen commented, "We are upgrading shares of GPS to Neutral from Underperform and raising estimates and PT to $24 (from $17) as we expect: 1) easy 4Q compares; 2) favorable AUC & leaner inventories; 3) translation benefit from Yen; and 4) stringent cost controls to deliver EPS at least in-line with consensus. While we view July’s comp miss as evidence of the long road ahead in re-establishing GPS’ three main concepts as “go to” destinations, we believe the removal of FY16 EPS risks and signs of comps inflecting will enable multiple expansion."
