In a report published Friday, Jefferies analyst Paul B. Fremont reiterated a Hold rating on Xcel Energy (NYSE: XEL), and raised the price target from $30.50 to $32.50.

In the report, Fremont noted, “1Q13 earnings of $0.48 were above prior year result of $0.38 and consensus of $0.45. The improved quarter result was driven by rate increases in cold winter weather. We are increasing our 2015 estimate to reflect anticipated future rate increases.”
