Packaged foods maker Campbell Soup Company ( CPB ) on Monday received a huge upgrade from analysts at Goldman Sachs.

The firm boosted its rating on CPB from "Sell" all the way up to "Conviction Buy." Goldman also raised its price target from $32 to $39, suggesting a 17% upside to the stock's Friday closing price of $33.31.

The move follows the firm's two-year Sell recommendation. Goldman notes that now the risk-reward for CPB looks good for several reasons:

  • More balanced tactical merchandising efforts.
