Goldman Sachs upgraded Portland General Electric Company (NYSE: POR) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $34.00 (from $31.00).

Analyst Michael Lapides said, "We believe POR will benefit from (1) industry-leading EPS growth, (2) lower regulatory risk after the partial settlement of its general rate case, (3) the removal of a financing overhang after the announcement of an equity forward agreement on June 10, and (4) attractive valuation upside on both a relative and absolute basis."
