Barclays reiterates an 'Overweight' on SLM Corp. (NASDAQ: SLM) price target of $18.00.

Analyst, Mark C. DeVries, said, "SLM announced a $400mm addition to the existing repurchase authorization after the close Tuesday that we believe was generally unexpected by the market...after adding another $400mm of buybacks (roughly 27mm shares), we are raising our estimates for 2012 and 2013 to $2.19 and $2.28, from $2.17 and $2.24, respectively."
