Print Email

In a coverage swap this morning, Goldman Sachs has made a change to its closely followed CONVICTION BUY LIST.  Goldman is adding InterContinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE:ICE) and removing the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (NYSE:CME).

The ICE target has been set at $210 over the next 12-months.  Goldman is also maintaining its official buy rating on CME.  This change appears based upon valuation and relative performance since teh CME is noted as being up 26% since being added on June 14, 2007, while the S&P 500 is down about 2%.

CME shares are down almost 1% so far in pre-market trading.  ICE shares are also down about 0.4% in pre-market trading.
