Jefferies upgraded Ventas (NYSE: VTR) from Hold to Buy and raised the price target from $66.00 to $72.00.

A solid acquisition outlook, and another year of strong results from the senior housing operating portfolio also suggests upside to 2013 consensus estimates. We are upgrading to Buy and raising our PT to $72 from $66."
