Goldman Sachs upgraded Veolia Environnement (NYSE: VE) from Neutral to Buy. The upgrade follows recent underperformance.

Analyst Dario Carradori said, "Veolia has significant restructuring potential and its earnings are very geared to the delivery of its €750 mn cost cutting target (by 2015; equivalent to 40% of its 2013E EBITDA and vs. 2013E net income of €195 mn). We forecast a 48% 2013-15 EPS CAGR assuming the company achieves only 50% of its cost cutting target and see significant valuation upside on this basis. Based on our scenario analysis, we see an attractive risk/reward profile from the ongoing restructuring programme."
