ING Barings said on Wednesday it had raised its rating on Belgian retailer GIB to "buy" from "hold" as the divestment of GIB's real estate business Immo draws nearer. ING Barings also raised its price target on GIB to 55 euros from 47 euros earlier. "With the forthcoming disposal of the real estate business, we are upgrading our price target on GIB to 55 euros," ING Barings said in a research note.
