Needham & Company reiterates a 'Strong Buy' on Polypore International (NYSE: PPO) price target of $50.00.

Analyst, Michael Lew, said, "The 8K filing by Exide Technologies (Nasdaq: XIDE)(N/C) highlighting a new three-year agreement with the Daramic division provides increased financial visibility for Polypore’s lead acid business, which accounts for 50% of total sales. While no additional details were provided, it supports our view that lead acid separator uptake is increasing. We estimate the demand trends for over 80% of the company’s business are improving."
