<strong>HEINEKEN<br /></strong>Broker JP Morgan yesterday raised its price target for beer brewer Heineken from &euro;23.00 (&pound;19.70) to &euro;26.00, forecasting an improvement in beer volumes during this year and next.&nbsp; JP Morgan added it did not believe that&nbsp; Heineken is again the &ldquo;cheap value, recovery player&rdquo; in the sector, but said that the worst is over in terms of volume pains and cash flow. JP Morgan said it now believes Heineken&rsquo;s earnings for 2009 to be in line with its peers, but the risks remain greater for the group.<br /><br /><strong>CARPETRIGHT<br /></strong>Deutsche Bank has reiterated its &ldquo;Hold&rdquo; recommendation on carpet retailer Carpetright after positive signs in the housing market have started to emerge. Rival Allied Carpets has recently sold a number of stores to Carpetright, improving market share. But like-for-like sales continue to &ldquo;bump along the bottom.&rdquo; The broker has forecast improved Carpetright trading if Allied Carpets closes more stores, or the housing market picks up, but warns of a lurch in consumer confidence.<br /><br /><strong>CRANSWICK<br /></strong>Evolution is the latest broker to put out a bullish note on the sausage-maker&rsquo;s stock, noting that the warm UK summer so far has led to a surge in demand for barbecue products &ndash; especially pork, which has been popular in the downturn due to its relative cheapness in comparison to beef and lamb. The broker also believes the firm&rsquo;s recent acquisition of pork processor Bowes of Norfolk will strengthen its strategic position, and retains its &ldquo;buy&rdquo; rating and 700p target price.
