Linde plc upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital

BMO Capital analyst John McNulty upgraded Linde plc to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target for the shares to $210 from $178. The analyst thinks the company will see "at least" mid-teens earnings growth in the next three years, driven by limited gas industry capacity adds, an inflationary environment, consolidation, and industry discipline. The bulk of these factors are largely not macro dependent, "offering stability to the equation," McNulty tells investors in a research note.

Market Perform
Linde delivering on Praxair synergy targets, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst John McNulty kept his Market Perform rating and $178 price target on Linde after meeting with its CFO Matt White and Investor Relations director Juan Pelaez. The analyst says the management's presentation about the company's progress of integrating Praxair suggests that it is "well on its way to working as one team, identifying cross-selling opportunities, and delivering on its synergy targets."

Overweight
Linde plc price target raised to $205 from $188 at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Michael Sison raised his price target for Linde plc to $205 from $188 after attending the company's Sell Side Lunch and coming away incrementally positive on long-term potential for the combination, which has several levers to drive strong EPS growth annually over the next few years. The analyst believes a much larger backlog of projects, integration synergy, the potential for revenue synergy, and a strong balance sheet with about $14B in cash should produce DD EPS growth annually. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

Buy
Linde plc price target raised to $196 from $184 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst James Sheehan raised his price target on Linde to $196 and kept his Buy rating after attending a sell-side meeting with its CFO Matt White. The analyst says the management is "conservative" with its outlook based on the macro headwinds but believes that the company stands to benefit from a slower global growth scenario with its "more defensive earnings profile". Sheehan is also positive on Linde's valuation at current levels as well as the preserved cost synergy potential from its Praxair deal, which he expects to be "highly accretive" in coming years.
