The analysts wrote, “We are reiterating our Neutral rating following the Q1 earnings report. Despite Q2 EPS guidance coming in approx. 20% below consensus expectations, management’s FY13 EPS guidance of $2.50-$2.65 remains unchanged. Our model revisions reflect lackluster trends in Europe in particular and margin pressure over the next two quarters tied to deleverage of expenses owing in part to the soft top-line trends and in part due to incremental marketing spend.”
