  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Rockwell Automation’s both top line and bottom line registered year-over-year growth in fiscal first-quarter 2017, surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both counts. Better-than-expected earnings was driven by higher sales, strong margin performance and lower tax rates. Given the strong performance as well as improving macro outlook, Rockwell Automation increased fiscal 2017 adjusted EPS guidance range to the range of $5.95–$6.35 per share and sales growth to be in the range of 1–5%. The company made three acquisitions during fiscal 2016 which further strengthened its technology differentiation, increased domain expertise, and expanded its presence in its markets. Rockwell’s new Connected Enterprise (CE) integrated supply chain management system will be a growth driver. Rockwell Automation's shares have outperformed the Zacks categorized sub industry in the past one year." (1/27/2017)
  • 2. Barclays PLC analysts commented, "We are updating our model following ROK's F1Q17 earnings release. Our 2017E core growth goes to 3% from 1% driven by better than expected book/bill and actual results in the quarter. We had previously expected the year to be more back-end loaded. Our 2017E EPS goes to $6.25 from $6.10. Our 2018E EPS goes to $6.90 from $6.85, as we remain somewhat conservative in light of low visibility on timing /magnitude of the recovery. Bias to numbers is likely upward, however. Our PT goes to $166 (24x our 2018E EPS of $6.90) from $144 (21x our prior 2018E EPS of $6.85)." (1/26/2017)
