Curtiss Wright cut to Neutral at BofA Merrill Lynch


Curtiss-Wright (CW +0.2%) largely shrugs off a downgrade at BAML today, as the firm cut the shares to Neutral but raised its price target from $42 to $46.

The firm says that after last week's Q2 results it's updating its model to incorporate higher margin expectations.

Specifically, it's increasing its Flow Control margin assumption to 9% from 8.9% and Surface Technologies to 16.9% from 16.5%.

As a result, it's increasing FY13 EPS estimates to $2.85 from $2.80, which is on the high end of management's updated outlook of $2.75-$2.85.

However, the firm is taking a conservative stance on the shares for now and moving to the sidelines as the company still has to integrate all of its recent acquisitions.
