Stifel analyst Nathan Jones reiterated a Hold rating and $171.00 price target on Parker-Hannifin (NYSE: PH) but offered positive commentary after completing a survey of 58 Parker-Hannifin North American distributors. The analyst's survey suggests North American revenue growth will be of ~6% compared to the Street Consensus of +2%.

The analyst stated "Pricing increased +240bps y/y (+350bps prior survey) as commodity costs continued to moderate implying strong cost recovery. Distributors expect sales over the next three months to increase 3.1% y/y and sales over the next 12 months to increase by 5.5% (vs. +4.6% in our previous survey). We maintain our Hold rating on PH shares and our target price of $171 based on 14x our F2020E EPS (13x cash EPS), with our survey being incrementally positive for North American results offset by continued caution internationally, particularly in Europe".
