MKM Partners upgraded KB Home (NYSE: KBH) from Neutral to Buy. PT raised from $10 to $13.

Analyst, Megan McGrath, said, "We see more risks in KBH than in many of the other names under our coverage due to recent operational issues; however, given that we expect some of these risks are behind the company and given our discounted valuation methodology (we apply a 1.3x multiple), we also believe that our valuation adequately reflects these risks. We see the biggest risk to our Buy rating as a potential equity raise from the company in the next 6-9 months."
