Gap price target raised to $36 from $32 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Randal Konik raised his price target for Gap to $36 saying the retailer's Q3 results point to a bottoming in fundamentals.

Gap risk/reward balanced at current levels, says Baird
Baird analyst Mark Altschwager noted Gap's Q3 results were mixed, as the company reported in-line earnings but a big gross margins beat. The analyst said the gross margins beat was due to one-time factors and that cautious guidance suggested a Q4 retrenchment in margins. With its recent share price appreciation, Altschwager feels the risk/reward is balanced. Altschwager maintained his Neutral rating and $28 price target on Gap shares.
