Outperform
Fortive upgraded to Outperform on valuation, M&A catalysts at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse upgraded Fortive to Outperform from Neutral and raised its price target to $60 from $54. Analyst Julian Mitchell thinks recent underperformance has created an attractive entry point and views shares as an underappreciated way of playing a short-cycle industrial recovery as well as potential benefits from the incoming Administration. Mitchell expects M&A activity to pick up materially in 2017, which should prove to be a meaningful catalysts for the shares.
