Wedbush downgraded Lindsay Corporation (NYSE: LNN) from Outperform to Neutral with a price target of $71.00.

Analyst, David L. Rose, said, "As extreme drought conditions have driven commodity prices higher, it appears LNN shares now reflect the increased possibility FY2013 irrigation sales will exceed 2012’s record levels, a view which has already been reflected in our earnings model. However, given the substantial appreciation in shares (+34.0% versus +6.8% of the Russell 2000 since our upgrade on 12/22/2011) and continued uncertainty, the risk/reward at current levels is less attractive."

FY12 EPS estimate raised from $3.70 to $3.74.
