MTU gained as much as 3 percent to 69.91 euros, the biggest intraday increase since July 4, and was trading up 1.3 percent at 11:58 a.m. in Frankfurt, valuing the manufacturer at 3.57 billion euros ($4.74 billion). The trading volume was 63 percent of the three-month daily average.

Fornaro raised her share-price estimate to 70 euros from 64 euros.
