  • The analyst notes Grainger delivered above normal seasonality, buoyed by core non-pandemic sales +22% year-over-year versus (8%) comparison and broad strength across customer demographics.
  • Baird analyst David Manthey raised the price target to $525 from $500 and maintained an Outperform rating on the shares.

The margin trajectory looks positive, and earnings should have upside vs. consensus, driving outperformance from here.
