Syngenta (NYSE: SYT) shares are up more than 1 percent Tuesday afternoon after attaining a spot on Goldman Sach's (NYSE: GS) lauded "Conviction Buy" list.

Goldman believes recent concerns over the delayed U.S. crop planting season are overdone, while Syngenta's long-term fundamentals are sound.

The firm believes Syngenta's unlevered balance sheet could allow for over $4 billion in potential acquisitions. These acquisitions could generate substantial shareholder value and help "decouple" the company from the volatile agricultural cycle.
