Barclays maintains an 'Equalweight' on Elbit Systems (NASDAQ: ESLT) price target lowered from $46 to $42.

Analyst, Joseph Wolf, said, "Elbit's 1Q results tracked defense trends in the US, where all the companies exceeded consensus, with sales coming in higher than expected after slower growth in 2011. However, backlog, a key metric for future growth, continued to decline...While we believe that ESLT is operating well in a challenging environment, we see more compelling growth and upside with other stocks in our Israel Technology coverage universe."

FY12 EPS estimate cut from $3.60 to $3.98 and FY13 from $4.39 to $4.45.
