PVH Corp (NYSE:PVH) has been one of a number of retailers to report earnings in recent days, with Monday's post-close report initially sending the shares higher in yesterday's trading -- only to see them ultimately close 0.5% lower at $100.05. The round-number $100 price point seems to be acting as a magnet for the stock, after previously representing a technical ceiling in previous weeks. It also marked a top to a rally attempt back in July, and is the site of a notable May bear gap.

Analysts, meanwhile, have had mixed reactions to the company's earnings update, which included a raised full-year outlook. More notes have come through since yesterday's close, including a downgrade to "in line" from "outperform" at Evercore ISI, with the firm also lowering its price target to $110 from $120.

The rest of the attention has been positive, though, as at least four other firms upped their price targets. The highest bar was set by Telsey Advisory and D.A. Davidson, which set price targets of $115.

Options traders have taken a put-heavy approach on the Calvin Klein owner, at least in the short term. This is according to the Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 1.31, ranking in the 92nd annual percentile. In other words, traders targeting contracts expiring within three months are much more put-heavy than normal. However, much of this is due to peak open interest at the deep out-of-the money January 2020 55-strike put.
