In the report, the analyst notes:

"HBAN shares traded higher Friday after Jefferies Equity Research analyst Ken Usdin upgraded the banking holding company to Buy from Hold, with a 12-month price estimate of $8. TheStreet.com quoted the analyst as saying that HBAN is 'better-positioned than most to grow loans given its greater emphasis on [commercial and industrial] and auto lending, with relatively less noncore loan run-off.'"

"HBAN added $0.17 to close Friday at $6.81, up 2.56% from the previous session's close. Approximately 18.72 million shares have traded hands during the session, versus the 10-day average volume of 10.63 million. HBAN is trading below its 50-day moving average of $6.85 and above its 200-day moving average of $6.44. Market capitalization currently stands at $5.88 billion and it has 863.34 million outstanding shares."
