Berenberg initiates coverage on Rockwell Automation (NYSE: ROK) with a Sell rating and a price target of $110.00.

Analyst Simon Toennessen commented, "Despite the high-quality nature of the business (strong returns, margins and FCF) we see increasing risk for further market share losses against its European peers Siemens and Schneider in the automation sector. A combination of cyclical headwinds (eg in process markets) and lack of secular growth (eg through software exposure) leads us to model adjusted EPS declines of 2% in FY 2017 (after already 9% in FY 2016) implying forecasts 8% below consensus."
