  • Oppenheimer Reiterates "Buy", Raises PT On Eaton Corp (ETN)

    Oppenheimer reported on Tuesday that it is maintaining an "Outperform" rating on the Ohio-based power management company Eaton Corp (ETN) , but went on to raise its price target for the stock.

    After meeting with Eaton's management team, analyst Christopher Glynn reported some encouraging prospects for the company. Glynn noted that, "Near-term capital allocation priorities remain reducing debt incurred from the Cooper deal, with no significant acquisitions expected until integration is complete (~2 years remaining). ETN has deployed 50 full time acquisition integration team members to accelerate CBE progress, and thus lacks the resources to adequately pursue additional large deals." Given the improving outlook, Oppenheimer raised its price target on the company from $73 to $78.

    Eaton Corp shares traded higher on Tuesday, gaining 1.35% on the day. The stock is up 30% YTD.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Eaton Corp (ETN) are yielding 2.39% based on Tuesday's closing price of $70.43.

  • Eaton Corp. Rumored To Be Selling Auto Parts Business (ETN)

    This morning, it was reported that The Eaton Corporation (ETN) was considering selling its auto parts business--which does not include the company's truck business--for over $1 billion. The global diversified power management company has been looking to branch out in recent years, and last year paid $11.8 billion for Cooper Power. Though Eaton's stocks were up slightly on the day, Wells Fargo analyst Andrew Casey weighed in to say that he thought $1 billion was too low for the auto parts division. Casey claimed  that the price for the rumored auto parts sale was most likely inaccurate as it is not in-line with peer average valuations. He went on to say that the $1 billion valuation could be 50% lower than a more accurate valuation. Eaton Corp.'s stocks were up .03% today, and the company is around 6.1% off its 52-week high. The Bottom Line Shares of Eaton Corp. (ETN) have a 2.56% yield, based on Monday's closing price of $65.64. Eaton Corp. (ETN) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.

  • Deutsche Bank Initiates Coverage of Eaton Corp at "Buy" (ETN)

    Citing a number of positive factors, analyst at Deutsche Bank initiated coverage on diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation (ETN) with a bullish rating on Monday. The analysts rate ETN as "Buy" and see shares reaching $81. This price target suggests a 23% upside to Friday's closing price of $65.62. In its report, Deutsche Bank noted, “We are launching coverage of Eaton with a Buy rating and 12-month price target of $81. Our forecast estimates are $5.25 in 2014 and $6.20 in 2015 – above consensus. Our high-teens EPS forecast growth rates would be greater than comparative peer growth estimates – driven by merger synergies associated with the acquisition of Cooper. Last year, Eaton acquired Cooper – a highly complementary electrical products player – that provided a runway of substantial revenue and cost upside. Eaton generally appears to have been run more efficiently than Cooper. Meanwhile, revenue synergies appear highly likely, propelled by common customers and channel partners. Eaton should also be able to realize meaningful service revenue at Cooper where Cooper had little service in its mix compared with Eaton's ~20% of Electrical Systems and Services. Cash operating synergies (excluding sales synergies) could equate to over $1.00/share by 2016.” Eaton shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up +21.11% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Eaton Corp (ETN) have a dividend yield of 2.56% based on Friday's closing price of $65.62 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.68 per share. Eaton Corporation (ETN) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
