Jefferies upgraded Wolverine World Wide (NYSE: WWW) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $49 (up from $37).

The firm comments, "We see WWW's acquisition as a game-changer that instantly increases revenues by 70%. 2013 EPS accretion guidance of +12% appears modest but, in our opinion, adequately conservative. We expect the story to ultimately resemble VFC/Timberland, GCO/Schuh and PVH/Tommy, recent deals whose acquiring stocks are up 45%+ since their respective announcements."
