    [$$] 3M Stock Seen Edging Up to $186

    3M (MMM:NYSE) By Credit Suisse ($176.66, July 26, 2016) Following 3M’s second-quarter earnings, we leave our earnings-per-share estimates largely unchanged -- slight cut to 2017 on pension costs -- and our target price moves up slightly to $186 from $178 to reflect the rerating of key peers. As we flagged in our electrical equipment/multi-industry (EE/MI) second-quarter preview, we did not think that 3M (MMM) had an attractive risk/reward profile heading into this earnings release (in common with most of the very large-cap EE/MI stocks), given its valuation, and it did not look easy to hit the midpoint of the former guidance. From a longer-term standpoint, we find it encouraging that the revised guidance midpoint implies 3M is on track to hit the lower end of its medium-term EPS compounded annualized growth rate (CAGR) target of 8%-11% this year, despite an organic-sales-growth rate which is below the bottom-end of its medium-term target of a 2%-5% CAGR, and despite buyback spending, which is coming in at the low end of its $4 billion-$6 billion placeholder for 2016.
