Apparel retailer PVH Corp (NYSE:PVH), which is the parent of brands such as Van Heusen, Tommy Hilfiger, and Calvin Klein, is down 1.7% to trade at at $114.61 at last check. This negative price action comes ahead of the company's first-quarter earnings report, which is due out after the close on Wednesday, June 2. Ahead of the event, we will explore how the security has performed on the charts, and how it usually behaves post-earnings.

Digging deeper, the security is fresh off a May 10, two-year high of $120.97. The 100-day moving has served as a solid source of support for much of the past year, containing multiple pullbacks over the last few months. And while the shares are now struggling with overhead pressure at the $117 mark, PVH sports an impressive 130.2% year-over-year lead.

PVH 100 Day

The equity has had a generally mixed history of post-earnings reactions over the past two years. Looking at its last eight reports, four of these next-day sessions were higher, while four were lower, including a 5.6% pop in March and 14.9% drop in May 2019. Plus, the security averaged a post-earnings swing of 5.6% the last eight quarters, regardless of direction. This time around, the options market is pricing in a much bigger move of 7.5%.

Despite having already recovered substantially from its pandemic lows, PVH stock still has potential as a value play. The security sports a surprisingly attractive forward price-earnings ratio of 16.56, considering it ended 2020 with a 28% revenue decline, as well as $1.1 billion in net losses.

In addition, PVH maintained a positive top-line growth rate between 2017 and 2019, with revenues increasing by roughly 11%. However, the company reported a 44% decrease in net income in 2019, which has most likely shaken investor confidence around its ability to fully recover.

Overall, there is still a level of risk associated with investing in PVH , due to a few of the stock's fundamental flaws. Nonetheless, the company still has the chance to prove investors otherwise next week, when it steps into the earnings confessional.
