Tumi Holdings (NASDAQ:TUMI) was downgraded by equities researchers at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. from a “conviction-buy” rating to a “buy” rating in a research report issued on Thursday, TheFlyOnTheWall.com reports. They currently have a $28.00 price objective on the stock. Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s price objective would indicate a potential upside of 18.95% from the company’s current price.

The analysts wrote, “We remove TUMI from the CL-Buy list but maintain our Buy rating. We continue to see TUMI as a compelling secular growth story, based on its differentiated brand equity, attractive category exposure to both accessories and men’s, and disruptive retail model. That said, positive trading catalysts appear a bit further out than we had originally anticipated. There is no change to our estimates or P/E based $28 6-month price target, implying +20% upside. Since adding TUMI to the CL-Buy list on December 11, 2012, the shares are +7.4% vs. the S&P 500 +25.6%. The underperformance was driven by an unanticipated, but short lived, slow-down in TUMI’s N Am comp sales in 2Q, as well as some margin dilution.”
