Wunderlich Securities initiates its coverage on Anixter International (NYSE: AXE) with a Buy rating and a price target of $74.

Wunderlich Securities comments, "We view Anixter's three businesses as having attractive characteristics involving either strong leadership positions in long-term secular growth markets (enterprise cabling/security) or competitive advantages leading to share gains (within wire/cable and OEM supply). Anixter's current valuation multiple is among the cheapest within our coverage universe; we believe future earnings upside (specifically in 2013), improvement in 2013 and 2014 top-line growth, higher-than-guided operating leverage, and a sound acquisition strategy will translate into a higher multiple for AXE shares."

AXE closed at $58.50 on Thursday.
