Barclays maintains an 'Equalweight' on WellCare Health Plans (NYSE: WCG) price target bumped from $61 to $79.

Analyst, Joshua R. Raskin, said, "WellCare reported fourth-quarter 2011 results this morning that were well above estimates and met with guidance for 2012 that could be seen as significantly better than expected."

Raskin also thinks that the magnitude of the beat and raise should provide continued lift to the least short-term.

Barclays also raises FY12 EPS from $3.90 to $4.50 and FY13 from $4.35 to $4.95
