Canaccord analyst Ken Herbert noted Astronics announced an increase in 2018 revenue guidance with an increase in both its Aerospace and Test businesses. The analyst believes both should be a positive and he said estimates will move higher to reflect the likely tax benefits and will provide an additional tailwind. He does not believe the revenue inflection point has been fully reflected in the stock yet. Herbert reiterated his Buy rating and raised his price target to $48 from $46 on Astronics shares.
