MKM Partners reiterated a Buy on Marriott Vacations Worldwide (NYSE: VAC) and raised its price target to $60.00 (from $45.00).

"Several data points in the quarter reinforced our conviction in the earnings growth and earnings power of the company," said analyst Chris Agnew.

"The company believes it can achieve a margin of 14%-15% in 2013 versus its initial 2012 goal of 12%. We believe the company can achieve these goals mostly through aligning sales and marketing costs with industry best practice," said Agnew.

VAC has also identified $15 to 20 million of annualized savings by 2014, as it phases out the transitional services agreement with Marriott International (NYSE: MAR). This is seen by Agnew as another positive.
