Jefferies reiterated a Buy on The Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) and raised its price target to $18.00 (from $17.00).

The secular demand trend for alternatives appears to be gaining momentum with strong inflows across all segments. Continued strong performance within liquid strategies has BX well positioned for a step up of incentive fee realizations into year-end."
