FBR Capital reiterates an 'Outperform/Top Pick' rating on Actuant (NYSE: ATU), raises PT to $29.

FBR analyst says, "We have a positive bias on Actuant shares heading into F1Q11 earnings on Dec 16 based on our expectation for upside earnings and positive outlook commentary. We see upside to FBR/consensus EPS estimate of $0.35/$0.34 primarily from better trends at Actuant’s highly profitable Enerpac (hydraulic tools, 28% of revenues), where our channel checks and proxy industrial indicators in Industrial Production and Grainger monthly sales suggest solid trends through the quarter...We are increasing our 2011/2012 EPS estimates to $1.55/$1.80 to reflect the Mastervolt acquisition and better underlying operating trends."
