DJ MARKET TALK: JP Morgan Lifts DaimlerChrysler Price Target

JP Morgan ups DaimlerChrysler (DCX) price target to EUR52 from EUR45, saying its a highly convincing restructuring story. Cites simultaneous action on cost and revenue at Mercedes, transformation into a more operationally-driven organization, and opportunities from portfolio restructuring. Says these factors more than compensate for short-term risk at Chrysler and a well anticipated downturn in US truck demand for late '06. Keeps at overweight. Shares trade +0.5% at EUR47.55. (JUM)
