Jefferies raised estimates and its price target on Kirby Corporation (NYSE: KEX) from $70 to $87 following Q4 results.

The firm comments, "Kirby reported 4Q12 EPS of $1.03, including the United earn-out reversal credit of $0.09. Excluding the credit, Kirby would have reported 4Q12 EPS of $0.94 which still easily exceeded Street consensus of $0.86 as well as our estimate of $0.88 primarily due to strength in the coastal marine transportation business. Kirby also introduced 2013 EPS guidance of $4.00 to $4.20."
