Needham & Company reiterates a 'Buy' on FEI Company (NASDAQ: FEIC) price target lowered from $55 to $57.

Analyst, James Riccuiti, said, "FEIC kicked off 2012 with a solid Q1 report, meeting expectations and generating another quarter of record bookings and healthy backlog. Q2 guidance was in line with expectations, and management expects full-year revenue growth of 6-9%, consistent with the range of Street estimates. FEIC appears on track to meet its stated gross margin target of 47.5% by the end the end of 2012. FEIC shares, which are up 25% y/t/d and trading near their 52-week high, remain attractive, in our view, trading at less than 14x our 2013 EPS estimate, adjusting for net cash."

Needham raises FY12 from $2.65/$870.3 mln to $2.70/$885.6 mln and FY13 from $3.05/$929.5 mln to $3.10/$940.6 mln.
