RESEARCH ALERT-Prudential ups Sungard to ``buy'' rating
NEW YORK, Feb 8 (Reuters) - Prudential Securities on Friday raised its rating on disaster recovery company Sungard Data Systems Inc. (NYSE:SDS) to a ``buy'' rating from a ``hold'' rating, saying that the company has bottomed and should recover in 2002.

Prudential also increased its price target on the stock to $40 from $27, saying that the company's purchase of Comdisco's business continuity assets and a recovery in the investment support group should improve growth in 2002 and 2003.

Sungard bought the business continuity assets of competitor Comdisco Inc. (NYSE:CDO), which is in bankruptcy proceedings, in November amid competition from Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE:HWP), which also wanted the unit.
