Goldman Sachs initiated coverage on Republic Services (NYSE: RSG) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $52, implying 0% upside.

Analyst Brian Maguire said, "We like RSG’s self-help initiatives that could generate meaningful SG&A savings, and potential volume leverage to a rebound in single-family housing starts. However, RSG’s valuation is currently elevated and could be susceptible to a shift in fund flows to more cyclical sectors unless economic data continues to disappoint. Furthermore, formula-based pricing linked to CPI will likely continue to be a margin headwind in the residential collection channel until a larger percentage of contracts turn over."
