According to a note out of UBS, its analysts have retained their buy rating and $34.60 price target on this language testing and student placement company’s shares.

A note out of Macquarie reveals that its analysts have resumed coverage on this battery materials producer’s shares with an outperform rating and $17.00 price target. Macquarie, which is very bullish on lithium, notes that IGO has a world class lithium business that it expects to underpin strong earnings growth in the coming years. In addition, it feels the acquisition of Western Areas should support its nickel production and open up growth opportunities. The IGO share price is fetching $10.33 on Monday afternoon.
National Australia Bank Ltd (ASX: NAB)
Analysts at Goldman Sachs have retained their conviction buy rating and lifted their price target on this banking giant’s shares to $34.26.
