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."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.8%

Rated "B (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's second-quarter gross profit margin decreased from the previous year.

"Management reiterated its 2012 EPS guidance of $1.90, slightly below the consensus estimate of $1.91 and BofAML estimate of $1.95," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a report on Feb. 2. "2012 EPS guidance is supported by $125mn of increment EBIT from expansion projects in UST and WCTP segments. We expect incremental equity earnings at Field services of $106mn, broadly in-line with guidance. SE also reiterated plans to invest $1.3bn of expansion capital in 2012, which does not include $4bn of growth capex in 2012/13 from SE's 50/50 joint venture (JV) with ConocoPhillips (COP) at Field Services."
