Goldman's 10 Best Stock Picks for 2011

8. Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI) is an engineering and construction company, focusing on infrastructure projects for oil-and-gas companies.

Goldman views it as a levered oil play. Crude oil is trading above $90 a barrel, currently, and demand is growing amid the global recovery. E&C backlogs are inflecting and Goldman expects investors to start paying higher multiples for stocks in the sector, with Chicago Bridge & Iron offering the most upside. Its stock trades at a forward P/E of 14 and a cash-flow multiple of 15, 34% and 35% peer discounts.






7. Sapient (SAPE) is a services company, selling advisory, analytics and consulting services to businesses and government agencies.

It also operates technology outsourcing centers in India. Goldman has a $15.50 price target on the stock, suggesting an impending 12-month return of 27%. The stock returned 47% in 2010 and has delivered annualized gains of 11% since 2007. Sales and net income advanced 16% and 171% a year, on average, over that span. The stock trades at a forward P/E of 24, a 32% industry premium. The company has $187 million of net liquidity (total cash minus debt).
