Jefferies upgraded Equity Residential (NYSE: EQR) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $64.00 (from $59.00).

The firm comments, "We believe EQR's acquistion of ~60% of Archstone greatly accelerates EQR's transformational story to a REIT focused on owning very high quality assets in better markets. As such, we believe the stock should command a higher multiple to better reflect the repositioned portfolio."
