Earlier, Goldman Sachs upgraded Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) from Neutral to Conviction Buy with a $16.50 price target.

The firm said following almost 30% underperformance versus their EU Tech coverage over 24 months, they see substantial mean-reversion potential for the stock.

"We think 4Q marked only the first quarter of a number of potential upside surprises," the firm said. "We believe a material sales mix shift towards Network Software in 2013/14 after market share gains in mobile network equipment in 2011/12 is likely to allow continued operational gearing that is not reflected in current valuations."
