L'Oreal upgraded on make-up performance, share buyback potential at RBC Capital

As noted earlier, RBC Capital upgraded L'Oreal (LRLCY) to Sector Perform from Underperform. Analyst James Edwards upgraded the stock partly due to what he calls "the outstanding performance" of the company's make-up business. Additionally, he believes that the company could launch a significant share buyback initiative if Nestle (NSRGY) new CEO chooses to sell that company's 23% stake in L'Oreal. Edwards says that such a scenario is "a very real prospect." Target to $159 from $150.
