Motorola Solutions upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies

Jefferies analyst George Notter upgraded Motorola Solutions to Buy saying consensus expectations are too low while risks to the LMR franchise increasingly look like a "red herring." After spending time with management, Notter upped his price target for the shares to $100 from $75.

Jefferies calls Citron Motorola report 'grossly inaccurate and misguided'
Citron Research's report yesterday on Motorola Solutions is "grossly inaccurate and misguided," Jefferies analyst George Notter tells investors in a research note. Using cell phone pricing to explain the price gouging assertion is comparing "apples and oranges," Notter contends. The analyst finds it difficult, if not impossible, to provide an accurate comparison between Land Mobile Radio systems without considering the cost of both devices and infrastructure. Citron's downside case is "wholly implausible" as Motorola's TETRA device gross margins are probably closer to 45%-50% in Europe and its U.S.-based gross margins are in the high-50% range, Notter argues. He notes that Citron pegged Motorola Solutions' European gross margin for LMR Device sales at 9% versus nearly 84% in the United States. The analyst keeps a Hold rating on Motorola Solutions with a $75 price target. The stock closed yesterday down 5%, or $4.39, to $77.34.

Credit Suisse sees Motorola Solutions recent weakness as buying opportunity
Credit Suisse analyst Kulbinder Garcha has fielded multiple inquiries around the bear case on Motorola Solutions, noting that he questions the validity of the recent concerns. The analyst believes that the 2017 guidance will prove conservative given organic growth returning to the business and solid cost management, and sees the recent weakness as a buying opportunity. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $90 price target on the shares.
