Goldman's 8 Best Tech Stocks for 2011

Sapient (SAPE), a business consulting and IT services provider, gets a $15.50 12-month price target, a 24% premium to the year-end price, from Goldman Sachs.

Its forward price-to-earnings ratio of 17.2 is roughly in line with its sub-industry's average P/E of 20, so it is relatively cheap on the basis of that comparison. Goldman said in a Nov. 11 research note that the company, which has a strong presence in interactive marketing, trading and risk management, is "one of the few investments with direct exposure to the twin waves of technology and secular growth of interactive spending. Together, these waves are expected to power robust revenue growth of 27% to 28% through 2012. We expect future share performance to be powered by sustained leading revenue growth and expanding operating margins."

The company is due to release fourth-quarter earnings on Feb. 15 and is expected to report 11 cents per share, flat to last year. Its shares are up 4% this year.
