Needham & Company maintained a Buy rating on advanced composites company Hexcel Corp. (NYSE: HXL) and cut its price target to $33.00 (from $35.00).

Commenting on Hexcel’s Q3 earnings, analyst Michael Lew said "Hexcel reported a strong quarter of results in a challenging environment. The financial upside was broad-based driven by the strong growth in the Commercial Aerospace, Space & Defense and wind energy segments."

The price target cut reflects minor adjustments to Q4 EPS estimates (to $0.41 from $0.44).

Going forward, Lew said, “In our view, the company is well positioned to benefit from the sizeable backlog of commercial airplanes that is worth an estimated $6.7 billion.”
