Embraer (NYSE:ERJ)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating reiterated by Zacks in a research note issued on Wednesday, reports. They currently have a $32.00 target price on the stock. Zacks‘ target price suggests a potential upside of 4.03% from the company’s current price.

Zacks‘ analyst wrote, “We are maintaining our Neutral recommendation on Embraer S.A. The company has already met its delivery targets for the commercial and executive segments in 2013 and is expected to reach its revenue goal. Moreover, the launch of the advanced E-2 commercial aircraft and strong inflow of fresh contracts primarily on the back of a rising demand for regional aircraft will likely sustain future growth for the company. Embraer’s focus on research and development activities, systematic inorganic growth strategy and continuous investments in new service centers will keep it well positioned. A stable liquidity position allows the company to enter into new ventures. However, we remain concerned about currency risk and the highly competitive industry that is forcing Embraer to incur high costs.”
