UPDATE: Raymond James Upgrades Halliburton on Continued Optimism
In a report published Wednesday, Raymond James analyst J. Marshall Adkins upgraded the rating on Halliburton Company (NYSE: HAL) from Market Perform to Outperform, and named a $63.00 price target.
In the report, Raymond James noted, “Our continued optimism on 2014 North American E&P capex is a theme we've been consistently touting. As such, we're upgrading the premier North American service company, Halliburton, to Outperform with a target price of $63. Our optimism is fueled by 1) upward bias to consensus EPS via North American operations, 2) upcoming Analyst day, and 3) option value in international turnaround.”
