Jefferies downgraded AvalonBay Communities (NYSE: AVB) from Buy to Hold and lowered the price target from $155.00 to $135.00.

Jefferies noted, "AVB's 2013 same store NOI growth forecast of 4.0% to 5.5% (vs. 7.6% in 2012) suggests coastal market fundamentals are slowing faster than we anticipated given: 1)rising supply in key markets (DC and Seattle), 2)slow job growth and 3)an improving housing market. We are downgrading AVB to Hold from Buy."

AvalonBay Communities closed at $125.93 on Monday.
