Over the past six months, the stock outperformed the Zacks classified Machinery-Electrical industry average. Going forward, the company’s aggressive restructuring actions and strategic divestures are likely to boost margins. Moreover, recent acquisitions, such as the Pentair and Permasense, look promising.
