Barclays maintains an 'Overweight' on Spirit Airlines (NASDAQ: SAVE) price target of $32.00.

Analyst, David E. Fitzen, said, "Yesterday SAVE released its updated 2Q guidance. While the increase in ex-fuel CASM range was read as a disappointment, we'd be buyers of the stock following yesterday's weakness for three reasons: (1) The CASM increase was expected and appears to be one-time in nature; (2) our view that the company can generate industry leading margins while taking advantage of ample growth opportunities remains intact, and (3) SAVE could be a defensive name that can outperform on a relative basis if our near term caution about the fuel/revenue offset plays out."

FY12 EPS estimates from $2.05 to $2.00 and FY13 maintained at $2.60.
