Brean Capital downgraded Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) from Hold to Sell with a price target of $85.00.

The firm cut 2013 EPS from $6.00 to $5.81 and Q4 EPS from $2.25 to $2.50 which is below management's guidance of $2.26-$2.29.

"We belive the recent aggressive run up in the stock is unwarranted, especially in the near term, as we view China as slowing and Europe and the domestic markets remaining under pressure. Further, with the December Swiss watch data to be released next week (February 5th) and the company announcing 4Q12 results before the open on February 12th, we believe near term material catalysts are clearly on the horizon."
