Parker Hannifin

The industrial company announced it acquired Camfil Farr's railroad filtration business on Feb. 1.

"PH reported EPS of $1.56, lower than our expectation of $1.65 and consensus of $1.62," Jefferies analysts wrote in a Jan. 23 report. "Segment margins were a bit lower than expected and contributed $0.07 to the miss. F2012 guidance was decreased $0.45 at the mid-pt to $6.90- $7.30 from the previous forecast of $7.25-$7.85 and consensus of $7.41. All in, PH has now lowered the bar and we believe future earnings adjustments are more likely to be up than down."
