Jefferies maintains a 'Buy' on Albemarle (NYSE: ALB) price target of $74.00 (from $77.00).

Analyst, Laurence Alexander, said, "We are trimming 2H12 $0.05 to $4.90 to reflect a more cautious view of electronics demand trends, and 2013E $0.35 to $5.55 to reflect caution on general volume assumptions (about $0.15 of the cut), potential HPC catalyst lumpiness ($0.10), electronics recovery timing ($0.05) and leverage to new catalyst capacity and product wins ($0.05)."
