Shares of home design retailer RH /zigman2/quotes/200286355/composite RH -7.33% rose 5.4% in Tuesday trading after the company was upgraded to outperform from market perform at Cowen and raised its price target to $435 from $370. Analysts led by Max Rakhlenko think the company is on the path towards a "multi-year transformation" that has the benefit of more affluent consumers making home investments.

During the most recent call, Chief Executive Gary Friedman said the company is planning to head to France over the coming years, and "throughout Europe." Cowen estimates the total addressable market (TAM) in the top 10 European economies at $40 billion to $43 billion.
