Nordson price target raised to $166 from $135 at SunTrust

SunTrust analyst Charles Brady raised his price target on Nordson to $166 and affirmed his Buy rating after its Q4 earnings beat. Brady says he is confident in Nordson's ability to generate organic growth and expand margins, which warrants a higher multiple relative to other industrials. The analyst adds that the company's "outsized backlog growth of 45%" positions it for an accelerated start in 2018.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Pfizer (PFE) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst David Risinger saying he believes investors underappreciate the global prospects for breast cancer drug Ibrance, which he expects to maintain its first-to-market advantage. 2. Progressive (PGR) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Ryan Tunis citing the announcement of much lower than expected Harvey losses of approximately $230M versus his estimate of $550M. 3. American Airlines (AAL) and Southwest (LUV) were upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James. 4. Post Holdings (POST) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Kenneth Zaslow saying he expects the company to be boosted by egg price increases. 5. Nordson (NDSN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Longbow with analyst Christopher Dankert saying ATS growth concerns are overblown and views valuation as attractive. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Diversified Industrials sector to show stronger Q3 organic growth, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Charles Brady previewed Q3 earnings for Diversified Industrials, forecasting acceleration of organic growth reflecting improved demand. He says there is visible growth across most regions and end markets, maintaining a favorable view on U.S. construction, defense, and municipal spending, with an added upside opportunity from agriculture, mining, and water. Among the companies with the biggest potential, he expects Nordson (NDSN) to recover from recent order weakness, Oshkosh (OSK) to benefit from faster recovery in access equipment, and Rexnord (RXN) to see strong growth in Process & Motion Control division. Brady is also raising his price targets on A.O. Smith (AOS) to $65 from $60, Dover (DOV) to $90 from $88, Fortive (FTV) to $77 from $70, and Generac (GNRC) to $47 from $38. Among those, he sees Fortive's recent acquisitions driving top-line growth and for Generac to show higher activity in generators in the wake of recent hurricanes.

Nordson Q4 results show continued positive core growth, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Charles Brady kept his Buy rating and $135 price target on Nordson after the company's Q4 results. Brady says the biggest standouts of the quarter were "continued core growth in Adhesive Dispensing, growth in Advanced Tech despite the difficult comparisons, and a 45% growth in backlog which implies strong order trends". The analyst says Nordson is "one of the most underappreciated organic growth stories in our coverage universe", and the latest quarter could change cautious investor sentiment, leading to expectations of sustainability of organic growth along with margin expansion.
