Jefferies analyst Janine Stichter raised the price target on Zumiez, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZUMZ) to $57.00 (from $54.00) after the company reported a top-line beat, with acceleration throughout 4Q. Comps of 4.7% exceeded consensus of 2.6%, and the QTD trend as of 1/9 was 1.7%, suggesting a continuation of the strong DD% trend in January. Store closures hindered top line, with stores closed for ~6% of operating days.

The analyst reiterated the Buy rating, stating "4Q saw upside driven by a strong finish in January, although earnings flow-through was somewhat more muted than we would have expected. While the start to 1Q was sluggish, we see improving trends for the balance of the quarter as weather normalizes and tax refunds hit, and continue to see margin opportunity in F'22 and beyond, even against challenging comparison."
