JP Morgan Ups Alliant Techsystems to 'Buy'

Alliant Techsystems (ATK) JP Morgan upgraded to buy from market perform.

Analyst Joe Nadol says Q3 EPS of $0.01 was ahead of his estimate. He says revenue growth was impressive, up 68%; driven by strong increases in small-caliber ammunition. He adds that free cash flow performance also is stronger than expected at $45 million, due to timing issues and overall strong performance. He bumped his $3.62 2002 EPS estimate to $3.65, and set a $4.80 2003 EPS (GAAP) estimate. Nadol says his upgrade is based on strong results, the emergence of an improved macro environment for defense industry this weekm and the stock's recent underperformance.
