Jefferies announced on Monday that it has raised its price target on The Timken Company (TKR).
The firm has increased its price target on TKR from $65 to $73. This new price target suggests a 16% upside from the stock’s current price of $61.55.
Analyst Stephen Volkmann noted: “We are increasing our estimates and price target based on the anticipation of a more aggressive share repurchase program over the next year.”
