UBS initiated coverage on shares of TRONOX (NYSE: TROX) with a Buy rating and a $145 price target.

Analyst, Gregg A. Goodnight, said, "Post emergence from bankruptcy in early 2011, Tronox has recently added the Exxaro mineral sands business through a debt-free merger. This results in the company being over 100% integrated back to ore feedstock which is a significant hedge against accelerating ore pricing. We believe that this is a de-risking event that will help extend the current period of strong financial performance."

Goodnight also highlighted a few potential near-term catalysts including: Possible large one-time special cash dividend, begin steady quarterly cash dividend, and stock buyback plan.
