Goldman Sachs upgraded Air Products & Chemicals Inc. (NYSE: APD) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $96.00 (from $86.00).

"We are upgrading APD to Buy after the shares (-7% YTD) have lagged industrial gas peers ARG (+12%) and PX (+1%) as well as the overall sector (+16%) and the S&P500 (+10%)," the analyst comments. "We believe the 2012 underperformance was due to deterioration in APD’s electronics business, market share loss at US merchant, and greater exposure to European end markets."
