Parker-Hannifin placed on Rating Watch Negative by Fitch

Fitch Ratings has placed the long- and short-term ratings for Parker-Hannifin (PH) on Rating Watch Negative following the company's announcement that it has agreed to acquire CLARCOR (CLC) for $4.3B in cash including the assumption of net debt. The Rating Watch Negative reflects the expected increase in PH's financial leverage, which Fitch believes will remain above historical levels although some reduction in debt and leverage is likely following completion of the acquisition. PH plans to finance the transaction, which will total around $4.5 billion including transaction costs and fees, with approximately $3B of debt and $1.5B of cash. Fitch expects this incremental debt would drive debt/EBITDA to above 3x from 2.1x at Sept. 30, 2016. Subsequent to the acquisition, PH plans focus its free cash flow on debt reduction while moderating its share repurchases, enabling leverage to improve to around 2x in three years. Prior to the recent downturn, PH's leverage had ranged from 1x to 1.5x.

Buy
Parker-Hannifin upgraded to Buy from Hold at Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst David Raso upgraded Parker-Hannifin to Buy and raised its price target to $135 from $113 based on lowered expectations, valuation, and and accelerating inflation. The analyst is encouraged by orders turning positive year-over-year in Q3 for the first time in 7 quarters and said Parker is in the sweet spot given its heavy distributor and broad manufacturer presence to any positive swing in industrial inventory stocking patterns.

Time Warner (TWX) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Omar Sheikh citing attractive valuation. 2.
