In a report published Friday, Goldman Sachs Group reiterated its Sell rating on BRE Properties (NYSE: BRE), and raised its price target from $45.00 to $47.00.

Goldman Sachs noted, “With apartment REIT share prices well below highs, the disconnect from private real estate valuations has become material enough that the potential for privatizations needs to be contemplated in valuation. As a result, we are increasing our BRE price target to $47 from $45. Combined with a 3.3% dividend yield, our $47 price target implies a 1% total return and we maintain a Sell rating relative to our REIT coverage universe. Our analysis highlights that a high probability of M&A is needed to change our investment view.”

BRE Properties closed on Thursday at $48.14.
