Jefferies reiterated a Buy rating on Harsco Corporation (NYSE: HSC), and raised the price target to $13.00 (from $12.00), following the company's 3Q earnings report. Harsco reported 3Q adjusted operating income of $29m, in line with its preliminary announcement on 10/17/16. Adjusted EPS of $0.14 exceeded consensus estimates of $0.13.

Analyst Bhupender Bohra commented, "HSC 3Q16 results were largely in line with its prelim on 10/17/16. Good operational execution and an improved steel markets in the U.S. and Europe were the drivers. FCF guide was increased while EPS guide was largely reaffirmed at the mid-point. Rail (NA carloads) and Industrial (NA rig count) markets seem to be bottoming with potential improvement in 2017. We believe the recent debt reduction provides multiple capital allocation opportunities."
