Jefferies analyst David Styblo trimmed estimates and his price target on MAXIMUS, Inc. (NYSE: MMS) to $65.00 (from $67.00) but maintained a Buy rating noting 4 key insights from the company's Q4.

Styblo commented, "This week's V-shaped recovery seems appropriate to us as fears of losing ACA related revenue are less than than initially expected. In a worst case, we estimate ~20c of total EPS risk. However, in a repeal and replace scenario, MMS would likely be relatively immune and could actually benefit from more work being conducted at the state level. Aside from this, the pipeline remains strong."

1. ACA Exposure Less Than Feared

2. Repeal and Replace Could Bring New Opportunities.

3. Pipeline Continues to Look Healthy

4. FY2017 Guidance Brackets Consensus.

The firm lowered FY 2017 EPS from $3.15 to $3.02.
