Industrial manufacturer Honeywell International Inc. ( HON ) on Monday caught some continued bullish support from analysts at Morgan Stanley.

The firm reiterated its "Overweight" rating on HON and lifted its price target from $68 to $71. That new target suggests a 29% upside to the stock's Friday closing price of $54.89.

A Morgan Stanley analyst commented, "We see organic growth decelerate to 4% from 6% in 1Q12. Assuming 2ppts FX headwind ($1.25 Euro), we move to the low-end of 4-6% revenue growth guidance. Our model calls for a Q/Q slowdown in all segments (Aero A/M, UOP comps, European auto prodn.) ex-ACS. While mgmt noted sequential improvement in ACS short-cycle products towards end of March, we conservatively model Products at +2% (vs. +3% in 1Q12), offset by modestly better Solutions (+3%)."

Honeywell shares fell 45 cents, or -0.8%, in morning trading Monday.
