Imperial Capital maintained an Outperform rating on Vanguard Health Systems (NYSE: VHS) and raised its price target to $13.00 (from $12.00).

Analysts said the target increase reflected anticipated positive impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

"The re-election of President Obama and a Democrat-led Senate has greatly increased the probability for significant ACA implementation. Vanguard is a beneficiary of the implementation which we believe will contribute to 50-100bp of margin expansion in CY14," said analyst Jake Hindelong.

Hindelong also expects new facility openings to drive increased volume in 2014.
