Wells Fargo upgraded MDC Partners (NASDAQ: MDCA) from Market Perform to Outperform, price target range $15-$17 from $15-16.

Analyst, Peter Stabler, said, "In MDCA we see multi-year organic growth and margin ramp, and company delevering as providing opportunity to drive 2011-2014 EBITDA and Free Cash Flow CAGRs of 20%+ and 40%+. Attractive 5.7% dividend yield adds meaningfully to growth profile, in our view."

"Our FY2012E revenue and EBITDA climb to $1.06B and $113MM, from $1.05B
and $109MM. Our 2013 estimates are lifted to $1.13B and $130MM, from $1.1B
and $128MM, respectively. Our 2012 non-GAAP EPS estimate falls to -$0.93
from -$0.21 driven by Q1 2012 result flow-through. Our 2013E non-GAAP EPS
climbs $0.15 to $0.25."
