Baird analyst, Ben Kallo, reiterated his Outperform rating on shares of Itron (NASDAQ: ITRI) price target of $62 from $56 ahead of Q3 earnings.

The analyst raised 2017 estimates and introduced 2018 estimates that reflect anticipated margin improvement and cost reductions and believes "the stock has more room to run".

The new 2018 estimates embed a strong year due to cost reductions and margin improvements. For 2018, the analyst is estimating revenue of $2,164M vs. consensus of $2,146M, adj. EBITDA of $249M vs. $257M, and non-GAAP EPS of $3.52 vs. $2.89. We believe street numbers may still need to be raised given recent execution.

Q3 earnings call will be held on November 2 at 4:00 p.m. CDT.
