UBS boosted its price target on Buy-rated Colfax Corporation (NYSE: CFX) from $38 to $42 calling in a "compelling long-term growth story."

While the stock is not without risks, UBS views it as among the most attractive multi-year growth stories in the sector.

"We still expect a '12-'16 adj. EPS CAGR of 30%+ (albeit, off a lower '12 base), driven by deleveraging, restructuring cost saving initiatives, conversion of the convertible preferred, and (hopefully) a cyclical recovery. We also see upside from future M&A activity. However, given CFX's outperformance since July, and lower base-year EPS for ’12, CFX is now somewhat more of a "macro bet" than it was in late '11/1H12."

UBS Revised '12/'13 EPS estimates are $1.32/$2.05, respectively.
