Goldman Sachs reinstated coverage on Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) with a Buy rating and a price target of $34.00. Analyst Matthew J. Fassler thinks Best Buy's new initiatives, including its alliance with Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), will drive numbers higher.

"The basic tenets of the BBY story are consistent with our initial "re-launch" in March: changes in key senior management roles are driving fresh strategic perspective and improved financial discipline. However, a number of elements of the story have improved further, namely more aggressive pricing; a new instore alliance with MSFT; visibility to improvement in the online effort; and, the sale of the firm's European business," said Fassler.

Goldman raised EPS estimates for 2013/2014/2015 to $2.35/$2.85/$2.83 from $2.25/$2.60/$2.60 previously.
