Benchmark reiterates a 'Buy' on Crown Castle (NYSE: CCI) price target of $70.00 (from $63.00).

Analyst, Clayton F. Moran, said, "Crown Castle reported strong 2Q12 results and raised FY12 guidance. While some of the guidance increase is due to noncash revenue from a new agreement with T-Mobile, cash upside was meaningful. In addition, we believe towers’ solid growth and defensive characteristics should continue to drive strong stock performance."

"Our 2012E AFFO/share is $2.93. We forecast $3.57 next year. The stock is at 16x
2013E AFFO with 15%-20% annual growth and limited operating risk
