NEW YORK, March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI: $33) has been picked by S&P Capital IQ as its Focus Stock of the Week. JCI carries S&P Capital IQ's highest investment recommendation of 5-STARS, or Strong Buy. JCI supplies building controls and energy management systems, automotive seating and batteries.
"Following the severe downturns of certain end markets in 2008 and 2009 for JCI's automotive and building efficiency businesses, we expect the company to benefit from recoveries in those businesses," said Efraim Levy equity analyst at S&P Capital IQ. "We believe that JCI has a strong management team that will serve it well and lead the company to growth despite some current challenges. We consider the balance sheet to be strong and supportive of organic and acquisition-driven growth initiatives, as well as increases in the dividend payment."
