Jefferies upgraded HMS Holdings (NASDAQ: HMSY) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $29.00 (from $21.50).

The firm comments, "We believe management has guided '13 with adequate conservatism, after misses in 2012. We are more optimistic on the positive impact of Medicaid expansion in 2014/15 and the high likelihood of Medicare RAC reprocurement. The remaining issue, a potentially soft 4Q, is being telegraphed and discounted in the stock. With HMSY down 40% from mid-'12 highs, investors should look to buy, with 4Q providing maybe a brief lower level."

The firm raised FY12 EPS from $0.90 to $0.97.
