Illinois Tool Works downgraded to Market Perform at BMO Capital on valuation

As reported earlier, BMO Capital analyst Joel Tiss downgraded Illinois Tool Works to Market Perform from Outperform with a price target of $180 on valuation, saying shares now trade at nearly 21-times his above-consensus 2019 EPS target. Tiss notes that the company has likely reached a tipping point for much better profitability and does not justify a premium, having outperformed most industrials with a 170% run-up in the stock price over the past five years.

Buy
Illinois Tool Works initiated with a Buy at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Ross Gilardi initiated Illinois Tool Works with a Buy and $190 price target. The analyst expects annual revenue growth to accelerate to 3-5% from 2.5% in 2017 and flt in 2015-16 from its 80/20 strategy that drives resources to the most profitable customers. Gilardi expects 15-20% dividend growth and thinks Illinois Tool Works will be a large tax beneficiary from any tax reform.

Illinois Tool Works price target raised to $180 from $165 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Joel Tiss raised his price target on Illinois Tool Works to $180 following the company's investor day, saying he is more confident of the firm's resiliency and growth. Tiss says the management has assuaged concerns that the company is approaching a margin ceiling, adding that his expectations of "modest economic growth" makes this the best period to own Illinois Tool Works stock. The analyst keeps his Outperform rating, noting that the company's operating performance is "unmatched across the industrial landscape" and forecasting more appreciation due to its "cyclical resistance, excellent balance sheet, steady dividend hikes, and share repurchases".
