Goldman Sachs upgraded Fortress Investment Group (NYSE: FIG) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $8.50 (from $6.00).

The firm sees outperformance given: "1) PE business undervalued: We believe investors ascribe no value to legacy PE funds’ earnings potential ($10 bn NAV at 1.4X MOIC) and a repositioned PE business. 2) Credit Funds and Liquid Hedge Funds are performing well and should contribute strong flows and incentive income, and 3) FIG offers the best value among alternatives with the market implying a 0X performance fee multiple (vs. peers’ 4X average), despite improving fundamentals."
