On Wednesday, Citi updated its outlook on 3M shares (NYSE:MMM), increasing the price target to $114 from the previous $104 while maintaining a Neutral rating on the stock. The adjustment comes as 3M prepares for the upcoming spinoff of its Health Care segment, named Solventum, slated for April 1st.

Citi’s analysis suggests a higher implied valuation for the remaining part of the company, referred to as RemainCo. This reassessment is attributed to several factors, including changing dynamics in key end markets such as electronics, the anticipated arrival of a new CEO, and a restructuring of the company’s portfolio to become more streamlined and optimized.

The analyst from Citi acknowledged the complexity of the spinoff process, highlighting that there are still various uncertainties to be addressed. These include possible changes to the dividend and the management of costs that will not transfer with the Health Care segment. Despite these challenges, the analyst’s commentary indicates a belief that 3M is strategically positioned to enhance value following the completion of the Solventum spinoff.

The market is expected to react to these changes as more details become available and as the April 1st date for the Solventum spinoff nears. Shareholders of 3M will be monitoring the impact of these developments on the company’s financial performance and market position.
