UBS maintains a 'Buy' on O'Reilly Automotive (NASDAQ: ORLY) price target of $103.00 (from $101.00).

Analyst, Michael Lasser, said, "ORLY's story is changing in some ways, looking more like AutoZone (NYSE: AZO), which has prototyped the model of stable operating performance and aggressive share repurchases. During 2Q, ORLY’s comp of 2.5% comp (vs. our 2% est.) came in at the high end of its revised comp guidance of 2% - 2.5%. It offered an endorsement of the industry by noting that the key drivers of demand are intact. Notably, its 3Q outlook of a 1% to 3% comp increase is in-line with our expectation of a 2% comp. It will be important to hear about recent trends to gauge the level of conservatism."

FY12 EPS estimate raised from $4.55 to $4.65. FY13 from $5.23 to $5.44.
