Enterprise software giant Oracle Corporation ( ORCL ) on Monday saw its shares added to Goldman Sachs' prestigious "Conviction Buy" List.

The firm also set a $33 price target on ORCL shares, suggesting a 27% upside to the stock's Friday closing price of $26.

Goldman noted the stock looks even better than before following its recent pullback. The firm commented, "Even off our lower-than-consensus CY12E EPS, Oracle trades at 11X, which compares to its five-year average of 15X and trough during the financial crisis of 9.4X (represents only 12% downside)."

Oracle shares, which have fallen more than 17% year-to-date, fell 26 cents, or -1%, in premarket trading Monday.
