Analyst comment:

"HUBB reported an acquisition pipeline with more actionable opportunities than ever (maintaining bias to bolt-ons), and noted orders are at or above expectations (broad-based), and based on current trends we would anticipate 2012 revenue growth more at the high end of 4-6% guidance," Oppenheimer analysts wrote in a March 1 report. "HUBB is clearly increasingly focused on international growth opportunities, anchored by Power Systems' manufacturing facilities in Brazil and China, and Electrical Systems' engineering and back-office services center in India."

TheStreet Ratings gives Hubbell an A grade with a buy rating and $89.70 price target.
