Citigroup upgraded Coach (NYSE: COH) from Neutral to Buy and maintained a $56.00 price target.

Citigroup analyst Oliver Chen wrote, "Our take is that COH stock has transitioned from a growth stock to value, & we're upgrading as we believe stock appropriately prices in caution & has good upside potential. We're upbeat on upside because we believe the Coach brand remains relevant, COH's plan to transition to a multi-category lifestyle brand will ultimately work, & free cash flow, absolute ROIC, net cash, return of funds, & COH's mgmt team remains top notch. COH has moved from a 20s-range P/E to 11.7x as comp sales have slowed from +DD in 2011 to -2% last quarter & op. margins have leveled off to ~31%."

Coach closed at $48.81 on Tuesday.
