Jefferies raised its price target on Consolidated Edison (NYSE: ED) from $68 to $70.50 following strong Q1 results.

Analyst Paul B. Fremont comments, "ED reported strong 1Q13 results driven by higher revenue associated with their rate plans and also a return to more normal weather which benefited ED's steam business. Management reaffirmed 2013 guidance and we believe the stock, trading at a group average multiple, will return to its historical 5-15% premium once the regulatory uncertainty is removed. Jefferies believe the company may be able to reach a settlement in June/July."
