IntercontinentalExchange completes acquisition S&P Global units

Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) announced it has completed its all-cash acquisition of S&P Global's (SPGI) Standard & Poor's Securities Evaluations, or SPSE, a provider of fixed income evaluated pricing, and Credit Market Analysis, a provider of independent data for the over-the-counter markets, including credit derivatives and bonds. SPSE and CMA will become part of the suite of data products and services that comprise ICE Data Services. Following the completion of this acquisition, SPSE will be known as Securities Evaluations. Services offered by Securities Evaluations will be managed and operated separately from the existing fixed income evaluated pricing services offered by ICE Data Services until further notice. The transaction was announced in March, the company noted.

INITIATION

On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on the today's top analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) initiated with a Buy at Sterne Agee CRT by analyst Jason Weaver, who put a $300 price target on shares. The firm has a positive view of what it sees as the company's "leading position and growth trajectory in energy, equity, and fixed income trading and clearing." The firm adds that the company's revenue mix is less volatile than its peers, while synergies and cost controls have made the company more profitable. Weaver also initiated Nasdaq (NDAQ) with a Buy rating and $76 price target, CME Group (CME) with a Neutral rating and $90 price target and CBOE Holdings (CBOE) with an Underperform rating and $56 price target. 2. Akari Therapeutics (AKTX) initiated with a Buy rat Canaccord. The firm set a $33 price target on shares and cited expectations for FDA product approvals and a level of underappreciation by investors for its shares. 3. Ralph Lauren (RL) initiated with a Buy and $115 price target by BB&T analyst Corinna Freedman, who believes Ralph Lauren will be successful in its turnaround and gain relevancy among a new younger demographic due to its strong vertical global brand house with a powerful heritage and sees significant category opportunities remaining in Women's and Accessories. Additionally, Freedman said International growth opportunities remain and Club Monaco repositioning is underappreciated. 4. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) initiated with a Sell at Standpoint Research and $94 target. 5. PACCAR (PCAR) initiated with a Hold at Argus. The firm said it expects challenging industry conditions to pressure earnings through 2017. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

IntercontinentalExchange price target raised to $314 from $279 at UBS
UBS raised its price target on IntercontinentalExchange to $314 from $279 as they believe the company is clicking on all cylinders.

CBOE 'likely in the cross-hairs' of bigger peers, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Andrew Bond said he thinks the strategic risk of a deal whereby CBOE (CBOE) buys Bats Global Markets (BATS), as it has been reported to be in talks to do, outweighs the potential reward. However, he also believe CBOE's relatively small size, limited regulatory risk, clean balance sheet, and strong organic growth make it an attractive target for its largest exchange peers, such as IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) and CME Group (CME). A combined CBOE/BATS would be more difficult to acquire, so if CBOE is to be acquired, "the time is now," added Bond.

TransUnion upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Manav Patnaik upgraded TransUnion (TRU) to Overweight saying credit bureaus will continue to outperform and that the market will benefit from a "scarcity value" in Industrials. The analyst keeps a $37 price target for the shares. Patnaik calls S&P Global (SPGI) his top pick in Information Services and raised his price target for the shares to $145 from $140. The analyst also views Moody's (MCO) as a "name to own" and upped his price target for the shares to $125 from $120. Patnaik this morning also downgraded Fair Isaac (FICO) to Equal Weight.
