Invesco (NYSE: IVZ) is bucking the market downtrend and is fractionally higher Monday following positive comments from analysts at Jefferies, which downgraded rival Legg Mason (NYSE: LM) today.

The firm boosted its price target on Invesco from $26 to $31 following a meeting with management of Invesco in Europe last week. "Overall, the outlook for fund flows remains strong and the contribution from various asset classes is expanding. Despite a challenging industry backdrop for flows, IVZ is poised to differentiate itself from peers in 3Q12 and beyond," the analyst said.
