Barclays reiterates an 'Overweight' on Wisconsin Energy (NYSE: WEC) price target of $42.00 (from $41.00).

Analyst, Daniel Ford, says WEC remains a Top Pick in regulated. He reiterates his rating after the Michigan Public Service Commission authorized WEC a $9.2 million (5.2%) permanent electric base rate increase.

In conclusion, Ford said, "Financial flexibility stems from significant free cash flow over the forecasted horizon, providing continued double-digit dividend growth and additional utility-based investment opportunities offering compelling ROIC and what we believe will continue to be an 8-10% total return."
