Core growth is expected to be 5-8%, with Energy/Industrial at or above the high end, while RF Tech/Imaging are at or a little below the low end. Based on the better top-line growth, we are raising our estimates by about 5%, but note that mid-SD core and 10% EPS growth are not differentiated compared to EE/MI peers."
