BorgWarner (NYSE:BWA)‘s stock had its “hold” rating reaffirmed by investment analysts at Deutsche Bank in a note issued to investors on Friday. They currently have a $63.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $60.00. Deutsche Bank’s price target suggests a potential upside of 1.20% from the company’s current price.

The analysts wrote, “BWA reported Q2 EPS, ex-restructuring, of $0.89 vs. our $0.83 & cons of $0.87. We’d note that excluding a $0.02 EPS benefit from foreign currency results were in-line with consensus. Nevertheless, operating results were very strong in the quarter. While organic revenue growth of 8.4% was in-line with our estimate, operating margin of 13.5% was well ahead our 12.7% est, as was incremental margin of 31% vs. our 19.5% estimate, driven by continued strong cost performance and operational execution. We continue to be impressed by BorgWarner’s operational performance but maintain our hold rating based on valuation.”
