The analysts upgraded RBC from “Market Perform” to “Outperform” and see shares reaching $75. This price target suggests a 19% upside to the stock’s Tuesday closing price of $62.85.
A Barrington Research analyst noted, “We are raising our investment rating on Regal-Beloit Corp. to an OUTPERFORM from a MARKET PERFORM. We are establishing a price target of $75 in the next 12 months based on P/E and TEV/EBITDA metrics. While subject to cyclicality, their portfolio is diverse between early, mid and late times in an economic cycle. RBC has been a successful acquirer of businesses that can improve margins and Regal’s geographic footprint. Growth of net sales has averaged about 12% CAGR since 2005 and we expect it to continue, if not accelerate, as the global marketplace is demanding more energy-efficient products from the markets that RBC serves.”
