Wells Fargo upgraded AutoNation Inc. (NYSE: AN) from Underperform to Market Perform with a price target range $31-33.

Wells analyst said, "We are tweaking estimates for our auto retail coverage to reflect a stronger-than-expected Q1 sales pace, and upgrading our rating on AutoNation given a generally more favorable view of the sector, built-in earnings upside potential related to recent share repurchase activity, and a more narrow valuation disparity between AN shares and the peer group...AutoNation's FY2012E goes from $2.18 to $2.30 and FY2013E goes from $2.44 to 2.68."
