First Data stock gains after BTIG raises price target on debt reduction

Shares of First Data Corp. are up 0.5% in Friday trading after BTIG analyst Mark Palmer raised his price target on the stock to $27 from $23. "We continue to view deleveraging as the primary driver of shareholder value for FDC in the medium-term as the company's ample free cash flow should enable it to meet management's target of reducing its net leverage ratio from 5.8x at March 31, a level more in line with its peers' leverage ratios," Palmer wrote. He thinks the company's recently reinstated medium-term revenue outlook looks "relatively easy to achieve and likely conservative" given the trajectory of the company's fast-growing products and services. Shares of First Data are up 18% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has risen 14%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

First Data stock rises after analysts cheer investor day commentary

Shares of First Data Corp. are up 3.3% in Wednesday morning trading following a flurry of upbeat analysts notes concerning the company's recent investor day. Mizuho analyst Thomas McCrohan raised his price target to $25 from $21, citing "potential for sustained higher growth rates in GBS North America organic revenue, in addition to the longer term prospects for a recovery within the JV channel as well as First Data's ongoing deleveraging effort." GBS refers to the company's global business solutions segment. He's also optimistic about the company's Clover business and CardConnect/BluePay acquisitions, though those have a longer time frame. Bernstein analyst Harshita Rawat raised her target price to $24 from $22, writing that she thinks "investors will continue to come from the sidelines" due in part to "visible signs of operational turnaround" and a strong trajectory for the Clover business. Clover products rival those from Square Inc. . First Data shares are up 17% in the past year, while the S&P 500 has gained 14%.

Square stock falls after Buckingham Research downgrades to neutral, cites competition from First Data

Square Inc. shares are down 1.2% in premarket trading Wednesday after Buckingham Research analyst Chris Brendler lowered his rating on the stock to neutral from buy. "While we still see a compelling top line and margin expansion near term, SQ isn't perfect and we think investors are ignoring some of the longer term fundamental concerns including merchant acquiring competition and the sustainability of Instant Deposit pricing," he wrote. "As a result, we are taking a break and hope to get a more compelling re-entry point soon." Brendler noted that Square shares hit a new high on Tuesday, but also on Tuesday, First Data Corp. discussed its rival Clover offering during an investor day. First Data's commentary "suggests competition is catching up," Brendler wrote. He raised his price target on Square's stock to $65 from $55. The stock closed Tuesday near $63 and is up 169% over the past year, while the S&P 500 has gained 14%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

First Data stock gains after Goldman upgrades to buy

Shares of First Data Corp. are up 5% in premarket trading Monday after Goldman Sachs analyst James Schneider upgraded the stock to buy from neutral.
