Nomura Securities maintains a 'Neutral' on Cooper Industries (NYSE: CBE) price target of $68.00.

Analyst, Shannon O'Callaghan, said, "1Q review; guide up, but still cautious on visibility, inflation and higher restructuring. 1Q was a good comeback quarter for Cooper after the incremental margin issues in 2011. CBE reported 1Q12 EPS of $1.00 (incl $0.06 environmental charge in ESS), slightly below our $1.01 estimate, in line with consensus of $1.00. 2012 guidance increased to $4.25-4.40 from $4.15-4.35 vs. our prior $4.35 estimate and consensus of $4.34. We raise our 2012 EPS estimate from $4.35 to $4.40, 2013 from $4.80 to $4.85, and our price target to $68 based on approximately 14x our 2013 EPS estimate.
