Essex Property Trust Upgraded to "Buy" at Cantor Fitzgerald (ESS)Oct 4, 2013Cantor Fitzgerald reported on Friday that it has upgraded Essex Property Trust Inc (ESS) . The firm has raised its rating on ESS from "Hold" to "Buy," and has given the company a $177.50 price target. This price target suggests a 16% increase from the stock's current price of $148.31. Analyst David Toti commented: "Today's change is predicated upon a review of our cap rate analysis, in the context of broad market strengthening across the ESS portfolio. The drivers of the recent surge in the ESS MetroView portfolio rank are increased employment growth, limited supply and rapidly rising single family home prices—all factors that bode well for continued pricing power and strong core cash flow growth. Although we do not consider ESS a strong relative value option across the REIT space broadly, we do find the growth/value proposition more attractive at current levels and have positively revised our stance." Essex Property Trust shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Friday. The stock has been mostly flat YTD.Expand to read the full story

(ESS) on Friday caught a big upgrade from analysts at Bank of America. The firm boosted its rating on ESS from "Neutral" to "Buy" with a $168 price target, suggesting a 16% upside to the stock's Thursday closing price of $145.00.
