In the fourth-quarter 2014, Dover's adjusted earnings grew 2% year over year to $1.01 per share, driven by revenue growth across all segments and strong volume leverage. Total revenue rose 11% year over year to $2 billion. Dover now expects total revenue growth of -2% to 1% in fiscal 2015, which mainly reflects a new Energy revenue estimate of -9% to -6%. This reflects the impact of lower oil prices, share repurchase activity and foreign exchange volatility. Dover will benefit from its focus on expanding business in key markets. Moreover, the company strives to innovate its products as per customer needs in order to gain market share. Hence, we have maintained our Neutral recommendation on Dover with a target price of $74.
