  • Jefferies Raises Price Target on Agilent Technologies (A)

    On Friday, Jefferies announced that it has boosted its price target on Agilent Technologies Inc. (A) following reports that the company will split into two separate publicly traded companies. The firm has reaffirmed a "Buy" rating on Agilent, and has raised the company's price target from $54 to $60. This price target suggests a 17.6% upside from Thursday's closing price of $50.98. Analyst Brandon Couillard commented: "A's move to spin-off its EMG franchise reflects a welcome departure from its status quo position and acknowledgement that the cyclicality of its Electronics unit has impaired a more rationale appraisal of its inherent value amongst healthcare investors." "With the shares still implying an ~18% discount to peers, we view multiple expansion as warranted. Our PT moves to $60 (from $54), in line with our SOTP appraisal, on a lower WACC assumption," the analyst added. Agilent Technologies shares were down 47 cents, or 0.92%, during pre-market trading Friday. The stock is up 25% YTD.
