The Wilsonville, OR-based company designs, develops, markets and distributes thermal imaging systems, visible-light imaging systems, locater systems, measurement and diagnostic systems and advanced threat-detection solutions.
The higher price target comes after yesterday's announcement that the company is introducing the "Boston" thermal camera core to the marketplace. This is the company's first new core since 2014.
"We're encouraged by FLIR's relatively high pace of new product introduction (recall the new thermal camera for traffic intersections introduced earlier in the year) and we are increasing our valuation multiple...which drives an increase in our DCF-derived target price," the firm wrote in a note.
The company reports earnings on April 26.
Shares of FLIR closed at $32.83 on Monday.
