Jefferies downgraded Parker-Hannifin (NYSE: PH) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $80.00 (from $100.00).

Analyst, Stephen Volkmann, said, "We are downgrading to Hold as fundamentals in the Industrial business (particularly in International) have further softened and order rates continue to trend downward. A larger than expected headwind from FX drives much of the $0.10 reduction in our F4Q12 estimate...We are lowering earnings forecast F2013 and F2014 by $0.50 (to $7.65) and $0.35 (to $8.40) respectively on a lower base revenue outlook for the International and North American Industrial businesses."
