Goldman Sachs resumes coverage on Rockwell Automation (NYSE: ROK) with a Neutral. PT $93.00.

While expectations are reasonable, Goldman sees slow growth in 2013.

"Near-term, history suggests potential upside to growth targets (2013 guidance: 1-5%) but the outlook still appears mixed," the analyst said. "Further, margin guidance also appears low, but we do not see much upside as slower growth/mix weigh on margins. Lastly, ROK's shares have already benefited from a pro-cyclical trade (+45% since July 2012), and we believe it's unlikely the multiple expands much unless growth accelerates materially."
