Meeting lots of interesting folk here in NY and one well-informed person told me this afternoon that one of the PIIGS central banks is busy, 24/7, printing their old currency notes again (just in case).

    NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- Goldman Sachs introduced a new recommendation Friday to buy euros against the dollar.

    Goldman's Thomas Stolper suggests buying the euro with an initial target of $1.40 as European policy makers appear to have made progress in recent days toward reducing near-term uncertainties. Greece naming Lucas Papademos as its new prime minister and Italy moving toward a new government headed by Mario Monti are encouraging signs, Stolper writes in a note.

    The euro was at $1.3735 in late morning trading in New York, from $1.3617 late Thursday, according to EBS via CQG.

    Goldman has set a narrow stop on the recommendation at $1.35.
