Toyota Motor Corp (NYSE:TM) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “buy” rating in a research note issued to investors on Tuesday. The brokerage presently has a $129.00 price target on the stock. Zacks Investment Research’s price target suggests a potential upside of 11.92% from the stock’s current price.

According to Zacks, “Toyota focuses on product development, capacity increases and expansion in emerging markets. The automaker also made several structural changes in order to deliver high-quality vehicles and improve the strength and autonomy of regional operations. Toyota, along with Daihatsu, plans to establish an internal company aimed at developing and launching competitive compact vehicles in the emerging markets where the potential for growth remains high. However, declining global sales, a string of product recalls and large fines pose concerns for Toyota. Also, the company issued a weak guidance for earnings, operating income and revenues for fiscal 2017.”
