Jefferies upgraded Parker-Hannifin (NYSE: PH) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $135.00 (from $115.00).

"An inflection in orders, the prospect of revenue/earnings growth beyond current expectations and potential for a corresponding multiple upgrade drive our improved outlook," analyst Stephen Volkmann said. "We are raising our estimates and see upwards of $0.50-1.00 of EPS upside versus a subdued consensus plus a call option on significant excess liquidity that could fund a 15+% share repurchase and/or a step up in acquisition activity."

The firm raised FY 013 EPS from $6.75 to $6.85 and FY 2014 EPS from $8.05 to $8.40.
