Eaton Co., PLC (NYSE:ETN)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating reaffirmed by Zacks in a note issued to investors on Thursday. They currently have a $82.00 price objective on the stock. Zacks‘s target price would suggest a potential upside of 5.59% from the company’s current price.

Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Eaton Corp. continues to benefit from its diverse product offering posting higher core sales and registering earnings surprises in the last two quarters. Going forward, the Vehicle segment is expected to benefit from the improvement in truck market fundamentals. In addition, the worldwide improvement in commercial airline traffic could spur aerospace aftermarket bookings. Recently, the company settled two litigations, which lowered its legal hassles. However, weakness in the South American markets could have a negative impact on the overall sales outlook of the company. Eaton generates nearly half its revenues from U.S. operations. Currently, the pace of economic development in the U.S. is not uniform across all sectors. Therefore, we prefer to maintain our Neutral recommendation on the stock.”
