Nomura Securities raised its price target on Buy-rated General Electric (NYSE: GE) from $22 to $25 following yesterday's analyst day.

"We continue to see potential for GE to create value by further shrinking GE Capital as a percentage of GE," analyst Shannon O'Callaghan said. "Now, we think industrial margin improvement can become an additional positive driver as the ramp in R&D crests and simplification results in lower costs. Industrial organic growth should be better than peers, supported by large backlogs, and GE's commitment to capital discipline via buybacks, $1-$3B sized acquisitions, and double-digit dividend growth in line with double-digit earnings growth all add up to an attractive formula, in our view."
