Goldman Sachs maintained Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE) with a Neutral rating and increased the price target from from $74.00 to $77.00.

Goldman Sachs noted, "We believe upside exists to 2013 consensus and the midpoint of guidance, partially on accounting for the delays in California rate case orders coming from the state utility regulator. While still slightly above consensus on 2014/2015, we forecast slowing yoy EPS growth in 2014, with reacceleration occurring in 2015 as new pipeline (Mexico) and renewable projects come online. We clearly missed SRE's outperformance over the last few months, but at this point, do not see significant total return potential, driving our Neutral rating."

Sempra Energy closed at $77.76 on Thursday.
