The firm said while they are positive on the long-term fundamental outlook, shares are trading at at peak valuation (15.5-16X 2013 EV/EBITDA) and they see risk of a 2Q13 miss. Goldman estimates 2Q13 EPS of $0.73, versus the consensus of $0.78. They see the miss attributable more to inventory de-stocking and a tough year-ago comparison.
