Motion and control systems maker Parker-Hannifin Corporation ( PH ) on Monday received some tepid commentary from analysts at Credit Suisse.

The firm maintained its "Outperform" rating on PH but cut its price target to $87. That new target suggests an 11% upside to the stock's Friday closing price of $78.50.

Credit Suisse also cut its earnings estimates for the company, citing PH's recently lowered guidance. On Friday, PH posted disappointing third quarter earnings results and offered a very weak full-year outlook.

Parker-Hannifin shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Monday.
