Goldman Sachs added Baxter International (NYSE: BAX) to its Conviction Buy List and lifted its price target to $64.00 (from $63.00), implying 28% upside.

The firm notes that due to a new product delay, concerns over increased competition in key franchises, and FX, shares are down 16.5 percent since April 1, versus the 4.5 percent slide in the S&P 500. Goldman, however, sees several pipeline products driving accelerating topline growth and a dividend increase in the 2nd-half.

In addition, shares traded at a trough multiple at 10.2X 2013E EPS, just above the level following the 2010 downturn in the plasma market.
