We have upgraded our recommendation from Neutral to Outperform on Quanta Services, Inc. ( PWR ). The company's third quarter 2012 results were encouraging, with earnings of 45 cents -- 25% ahead of the Zacks Consensus Estimate and 80% above the prior-year level.

Quanta's strengths include strong execution, increasing demand for its services and customer confidence in the company. Revenues from the electric power segment grew 32%, while the natural gas and pipeline segment continued to improve despite the lack of large-diameter pipeline projects.
