Analyst Note

| Krzysztof Smalec |

We are raising our fair value estimate for narrow-moat-rated Lincoln Electric to $159 from $156 after the company reported solid first-quarter results, as the firm's sales of $1,039 million beat our $1,029 million estimate. The fair value increase reflects our slightly more optimistic near-term revenue growth projections as well as time value of money. We view the name as fairly valued at current levels, with shares trading in 3-star territory.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
