UBS maintains a 'Buy' on Standard Pacific (NYSE: SPF) price target raised from $5.00 to $6.50.

Analyst, David Goldberg, said, "While Standard Pacific’s 1Q results were impressive—reflecting robust order and top line growth as well as solid profitability—we believe upside persists. Our outlook considers: 1) management has opportunistically acquired lots in various stages of completion in the downturn, which will fuel community count growth and a greater acceleration in sales & 2) the co’s hist’l concentration on move-up buyers creates a competitive advantage as peers increasingly shift their focus to this segment."

UBS raises FY12 EPS estimate $0.08 from $0.12 and FY13 from $0.18 to $0.22.
