Wells Fargo upgraded PolyOne (NYSE: POL) from Market Perform to Outperform with a price target range $16-17.

Analyst, Frank J. Mitsch, said, "We are raising our rating on POL shares supported by a more attractive valuation on the recent retreat in share price, as well as on our increased earnings estimates. Over the past seven weeks, POL shares have dropped 11% (vs. a 6% increase in the S&P 500). We are also raising our 2012 EPS estimate from $1.12 to $1.20 [maintaining our Street High Q1 EPS of $0.28E (consensus $0.25)], and 2013 from $1.25 to $1.35, reflecting our increased confidence in the ColorMatrix (CM) contribution and improvement in housing."
