Jefferies reiterated a Buy rating on Harsco Corporation (NYSE: HSC), and raised the price target to $12.00 (from $10.00), after adjusting estimates. HSC plans to realize SBB revenues worth $200m during 2017-2019. The subcontractor issue will be a negative to margin in 2017 and is built in the model.

Analyst Bhupender Bohra commented, "We see an improvement in its Metals & Minerals and Industrial businesses, and lower margin in Rail. With M&M's customers' profitability improving, we could see re-focus on organic growth. Rail award opportunities remain and sequential improvement in NA rig count YTD bodes well. HSC's decision to exit Brand JV is a step in the right direction to improve balance sheet capability. We have adjusted our model for the lower interest expense and absence of JV income."
