Perry Ellis International Inc. (NASDAQ:PERY) has been given a $25.00 target price by FBR & Co in a report issued on Monday. The brokerage currently has a “buy” rating on the textile maker’s stock. FBR & Co’s price objective would indicate a potential upside of 47.32% from the company’s previous close.

The analysts wrote, “We are reiterating our Buy rating, estimates and $25 price target for PERY with the company reporting 2QFY18 (July) results before the open on Thursday. Given Street worries over the department store sector, PERY is trading within 5% of its 52 week low; as such, we believe expectations are low for 2Q and guidance. That said, we believe the company is set for solid upside to 2Q driven by the rollout of the Nicklaus line, expansion both domestically and internationally by Callaway (ELY) and continued market share gains in department stores, which we believe will offset weakness at JC Penney (JCP) and Kohl’s (KSS).””
