UBS maintains a 'Buy' on American Tower (NYSE: AMT) price target of $80.00 (from $75.00).

Analyst, Batya Levi, said, "AMT reported solid results with accelerating core revenue growth generated from the existing sites (8.1% vs. 6.1% in 2Q) based on strong activity from AT&T (NYSE: T), VZW, Sprint (NYSE: S) and int’l operators and low churn while FX drag was 6.3%. Mgmt expects organic growth to remain at ~9% in 2H, with a consistent 7%+ growth in the US and double-digit growth internationally."
