Cytec Industries Inc (NYSE:CYT) is a company with specialty in materials and chemicals and has its focus on development, manufacture and selling value-added products.

The analysts of Goldman Sachs upgraded Cytec Industries (NYSE: CYT) to a “buy” rating from the previous rating of “sell”. They upgraded the rating on Monday through a note that was issued to investors. Presently, the company has a price objective of $1.38 on the stock, which was formerly set at $1.03.

As per the analysts “We upgrade shares of CYT to Buy from Sell. Since adding CYT to the Americas Sell List on May 15, 2009, shares have risen 256% vs. 85% for the S&P 500. We attribute this outperformance to a multiple re-rating since CYT’s divestment of its lagging Coating Resins business to become a more focused, secularly-driven composite and specialty chemical company. With 787 battery issues resolved ahead of an inflection in build rates, we believe CYT’s multiple expansion is not yet complete. Assuming a HXL multiple (17X Street 2014E EPS) for CYT’s aerospace unit, CYT’s remaining segments trade at less than 7X our 2014 EPS estimate, which is too low in our opinion.”
