Goldman Sachs maintains a 'Buy' on Nordstrom (NYSE: JWN) price target of $65.00.

Analyst, Adrianne Shapira, said, "JWN posted 1Q EPS of $0.70, below GS/consensus estimates of $0.79/$0.75. The miss relative to our estimate was primarily driven by gross margin ($0.07) and SG&A deleverage ($0.02)...While the 1Q miss and below-consensus 2Q guidance are far from positive, we highlight two key silver linings that keep our thesis intact: (1) Key EBIT inflection to come sooner than planned; and (2) Investments successfully driving top line."

"We lower our FY12/FY13/FY14 EPS estimates to $3.45/$4.00/$4.75 from $3.60/$4.20/$4.95 on the flow through from the 1Q miss and the lower-than-expected 2Q guidance."
