UPDATE: Stifel Nicolaus Raises PT to $80 on Honeywell International on Solid Margin Execution
Stifel Nicolaus maintained Honeywell International (NYSE: HON) with a Buy rating and raised the price target from $74.00 to $80.00.
Stifel Nicolaus commented, "Honeywell's 2013 Investor Conference showed the company's solid margin execution and realizable improvement potential across a number of businesses, in our view, despite continued uncertain macro environment. While no updated guidance was provided, we are tweaking our EPS estimates slightly higher and raising our 12-month target price to $80 on our increased confidence in management's 2014 margin targets with the recent progress of HOS, productivity initiatives, as well as with new product strategy pointing to further upside beyond 2014."
