Deutsche Bank upgraded Legg Mason (NYSE: LM) from Hold to Buy.

Deutsche analyst said, "We are upgrading LM given the recent pull back in the shares (~15%), multiple defensive earning levers, an attractive valuation, and areas of improving core trends. While the stock has pulled back post the weak quarter and the challenging markets/industry trends, our 2012 estimate remains unchanged (versus a downward move for the sector) given the earnings levers ahead, we find it attractive, and see ~20% upside in the shares."
