Levi Strauss shares climbed +2.1% Monday, following JPMorgan’s overweight rating on the company.
JPMorgan just started coverage of the iconic denim company, which went public in March. JPMorgan analyst Matthew Boss cited the “strong tenured management team led by CEO (Chip) Bergh” coupled with the brand’s heritage as solid factors expected to boost Levi’s global market.
JPMorgan analysts set a $26 year-end price target for Levi shares.
Last week, Levi Strauss reported its quarterly earnings of 37 cents a share on revenue of $1.44 billion – compared to the year-ago period’s loss of -5 cents a share on revenue $1.34 billion.
