Workforce solutions provider ManpowerGroup (MAN) on Monday caught some tepid commentary from analysts at Bank of America/Merrill Lynch.

The firm maintained its “Outperform” rating on MAN but lowered its price target to $45. That new target suggests a smaller but still sizable 34% upside to the stock’s Friday closing price of $33.46.

Bank of America/Merrill Lynch also lowered its earnings estimates for the company, citing sluggish growth in its European segment.

ManpowerGroup shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Monday.
