The firm currently has a “buy” rating on the textile maker’s stock. Canaccord Genuity’s price objective indicates a potential upside of 11.11% from the company’s current price.

The analysts wrote, “We are positive on SHOO into its Q3 report on Tuesday, October 31 BMO. Excluding the hurricane impact in TX and FL (which we estimate hurt comps by ~100bps), Q3 should be another solid quarter with EPS upside potential of 1-2c due to the strength of core SM women’s. We are currently modeling EPS of 76c vs. 77c consensus on net sales growth of 8%, based on wholesale sales growth of 8.4% and a 2% retail comp. Within the wholesale segment, we are modeling 2.2% growth in core w/s footwear (due to weak private label and tough comparisons in SM women’s) and 3% growth in w/s accessories as we believe handbags have ticked up now that industry promotional pressures have subsided. In addition, we estimate Schwartz & Benjamin (S&B) will add ~$21M (or ~600bps of growth) to Q3 wholesale revenue.””
