Lake Street Capital Markets initiated coverage on Fuel Systems Solutions (NASDAQ: FSYS) with a Buy rating and $18 price target.

Analyst Robert D. Brown comments, "Although we would not be surprised to see an earnings shortfall for Q4-12 (to be reported March 8) and a lowering of forward estimates (our 2013 estimates are set below consensus), we believe it is time to revisit Fuel Systems. Earnings likely bottomed in Q4 and are set to re-accelerate, the stock is inexpensive (4.8x EV/EBITDA), and the company is in a strong position to see growth from the secular shift to natural gas vehicles.

As revenue growth returns, we estimate operating margins can recover to at least 5% in 2014 from under 2% in 2012. Further, we think the multiple will move from a discount to at least in-line with its comp group (which trades at roughly 7x EV/EBITDA) with more consistent execution and clarity on future growth."
