Trimble Navigation Limited Receives Neutral Rating from Zacks (TRMB)
Trimble Navigation Limited (NASDAQ:TRMB)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating restated by Zacks in a research note issued to investors on Wednesday. They currently have a $33.00 target price on the stock. Zacks‘s price objective suggests a potential upside of 5.67% from the company’s current price.
Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Trimble is an OEM of GPS-based products and control systems. Second quarter results beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate, driven by broad-based growth in the majority of Trimble’s businesses. While government sequestration concerns remain, improving trends in the domestic construction market, increasing adoption of technology in the agricultural market and well-planned acquisitions in the TMS segment remain secular drivers. Product enhancements and introductions, a re-aligned cost structure, improving mix of software and services revenue, and international expansion are other positives. We have a Neutral recommendation on Trimble shares.”
