UBS maintains a 'Neutral' on Gap, Inc. (NYSE: GPS) price target of $35.00 (from $34.00).

Analyst, Roxanne Meyer's highlighted points from the Company's earning release include: 1) Slight Q2 beat; better-than-expected gross margins offset higher SG&A; 2) FY12 guidance remains below Street, but looks conservative; 3) Improved execution, but early days and stock nearing peak multiple; and 4) traffic remains negative, which is concerning in light of product/marketing improvement and SG&A will continue to grow faster than sales for the foreseeable future.

FY13 EPS estimate raised from $2.20 to $2.22 and FY14 from $2.41 to $2.44.
