  • Rockwood Holdings Downgraded to "Neutral" at Goldman Sachs; PT Lowered (ROC)

    Goldman Sachs reported on Thursday that it has reduced its rating on Rockwood Holdings, Inc. (ROC) . The firm has downgraded ROC from "Buy" to "Neutral," and has lowered the company's price target from $80 to $78. This price target suggests a 13% upside from the stock's current price of $67.94. Analyst Robert Koort commented: "Over the last 12 months ROC is up 39%, vs. S&P 500 up 18%. We attribute this to ROC’s aggressive strategy of maximizing shareholder value through divestments of its non-strategic Ceramics, Additives, and TiO2 units in 2013 (together nearly 60% of EBITDA in 2012). With ROC having achieved a “re-rating” of its multiple now reflective of its focused Lithium and Surface Treatment portfolio, we shift to the sidelines and await greater clarity on ROC’s plans to deploy the $2.7bn pro forma cash balance ($1.4bn net), likely towards M&A per ROC."
