Analysts expect more upside for PH.

Parker-Hannifin is benefiting from increased demand from distributors and end users in the oil and gas, materials handling, light and light truck, and agricultural and agricultural markets in the North American region within the diversified industrial segment. Higher volume across all businesses, particularly the commercial and military aftermarket businesses, boosted the company’s Aerospace Systems unit. Synergies from the Meggitt buyout (September 2022) also help the company. Win strategy benefits boost Parker-Hannifin’s margins. The company’s measures to add shareholder value are promising. However, rising cost of sales and rising SG&A costs threaten the bottom line. Foreign exchange headwinds could erode PH’s top line. The weak liquidity position is also a concern.

The stock has risen 6.64% over the past four weeks and no earnings estimates have fallen over the past two months, compared to 7 higher for fiscal 2023. The consensus estimate has also risen.
