Deutsche Bank upgraded Computer Sciences (NYSE: CSC) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $46.00 (from $38.00).

The firm comments, "After meeting with the company's new mgmt and working through our model, we believe the turnaround is happening faster and normalized EPS of $5.00+ will be reached earlier than expected (current valuation does not reflect future normalized earnings). CSC currently trades at a significant discount to peers even at depressed EBITDA levels (trades at only 3.5x CY13 EV/EBITDA versus peer group of 8.4x). We are raising our FY14 EPS est $0.29 to $3.51 (above Street) and issuing FY15 of $4.00, believing these figures could prove conservative."
