Yesterday Cognex Corp (NASDAQ: CGNX) reported Q4 EPS that topped estimates on higher than expected revenue. The company also reported revenue guidance that was in-line, which analysts at Needham think was conservative.

"CGNX looks well positioned entering 2013, with several new products, although the sluggish economic environment is likely to restrain top-line growth again in the early part of the year," said analyst James Ricchiuti.

He thinks the company will grow as the global economy gains momentum.

Needham & Company reiterated a Buy rating on Cognex and raised its price target to $47.00 (from $40.00).
