Zacks‘ analyst wrote, “Tyco reported strong first quarter fiscal 2014 results as both revenue and earnings increased year over year with solid performances across all three segments. Tyco, post the spin-off of its ADT and Flow Control divisions, has now become a pure Fire & Security company. Given, Tyco’s broad portfolio of products and market-leading position, it continues to strengthen its competitive capabilities and grow through acquisitions. The company believes that its strong balance sheet provides flexibility to continuously fund organic and inorganic growth initiatives and maximize return for its shareholders. However unfavorable foreign currency translation, pending lawsuits, and high operating expense remain concerns for the company. We maintain our long-term Neutral recommendation for Tyco. “
