    • It's probably not the name change as iStar Financial (previously SFI, now STAR) adds to a big year by surging 4.6%. KBW initiating the stock with a Buy and $17 price target may have something to do with today's move.
    • Entering 2013 with questions about how it was going to pay its bills, iStar has cut non-performing loans, sold noncore assets, and was able to issue $565M in debt at a favorable (for the company) rate. The stock's ahead 70% YTD.

    iStar Financial (SFI +22.6%) rises with the rest of the financials on renewed optimism for more stimulus from the Fed this afternoon, plus an added boost from its announcement late yesterday of a new $65M stock repurchase program.
