Our new $110, six-month price target reflects an EPS multiple of 12X, in line with the 20-year average. Margins are going higher and we pivot our model upwards to give the company credit for the pricing/restructuring we missed but layer in incremental commodity relief that drives our estimates higher than consensus. With shares up 98% ytd, we recognize much of the easy money has been made but we still see 15%-20% near team upside.”
