Exane BNP Paribas upgraded Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG) from Neutral to Outperform.

The analyst comments "Refocusing on healthcare has fuelled a re-rating, and the shares have done well so far in 2018 (>25% ytd; +10% rel.). However, they still trade at an unjustified 10/15% discount to the sector, given the co’s improved execution and the strong momentum behind adj.EBITA (13% CAGR 2017–20e). Backed by more optimistic medium-term growth and margin assumptions, we upgrade the stock!"
