UPDATE: Jefferies Raises PT on Illinois Tool Works to $70 (ITW)


Jefferies is out with its report today on Illinois Tool Works (NYSE: ITW), raising its PT from $65 to $70.

In a note to clients, Jefferies writes, "Our $70 PT (from $65) is based on multiples that are above the midpoint of the historical range (180% EV/Sales, 10.0x EV/EBITDA, 16.5x P/E) on our FY11 numbers. Risks include any change in economic growth and the company's ability to supplement growth with acquisitions. ITW is global and could be impacted by currency fluctuations."
