Jefferies boosted estimates and its price target on Sagent Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: SGNT) from $20 to $21 following strong Q1 results and what they are calling conservative guidance.

Analyst Corey Davis, Ph.D. comments, "We thought SGNT's 1st-time ’13 guidance was conservative in February, and after a very solid Q1 beat-without-raise, we continue to think so. Investors are cautious given no raise, near-term China-facility consolidation dilution, and Gx Venofer delay. That's probably fair given guidance-cuts in ’12, but we think further launches & relative GM stability/predictability rejuvenate mgmt. credibility. Also, look for increased BD activity."

The firm lifted Q2 EPS estimates from ($0.02) to $0.02, FY EPS estimates 2013 from $0.08 to $0.41 and FY EPS estimates 2014 from $0.75 to $0.80.
