Barclays maintains an 'Underweight' on DreamWorks Animation (NASDAQ: DWA) price target of $15.00.

Analyst, Anthony DiClemente, said, "...While the weekend take fell just short of Madagascar 2's $63M haul in 2008, it was still a very impressive result (Mad 3 hauled in $60.4 million). We are therefore raising our 2012 EPS estimate slightly to reflect higher expected worldwide box office revenues for Madagascar 3. However, our $15 price target remains unchanged, as we believe the stock's current P/E multiple of 19.0x is still expensive relative to the group, which trades at 13.6x 2012 EPS."

Despite the Underweight rating, DiClemente raises FY12 EPS estimates from $0.93 to $0.95, maintains FY13 EPS at $1.04.
