Blackhawk technical comments ahead of earnings

The shares have been trading in a range largely bound by $30 at the low and $35 at the high since March of this year. Ahead of earnings the stock is in the middle of this range. If the new is bearish, a test down to the low of the range may be possible. If there is a breakdown below $30 on major negative news, the next support level of significance is at $28.88 which is the 52-week low. A breakdown below that low would see next support at $27.32. If the news is a major positive surprise, the upper bound of the range at $35 could be tested. If the news were exceptionally strong there could be a breakout. Next resistance above the $35 level to watch as a potential upside objective would be at $37.07. A move above that latter level would clear resistance and resolve the current range bullishly; a technical positive for future price.

Blackhawk recent selloff a buying opportunity, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Ramsey El-Assal recommends using the recent pullback in shares of Blackhawk Network as a buying opportunity. Revenue lost to chip cards should flow back into 2017, El-Assal tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees upside to the company's 2017 estimates and keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $43 price target.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tyson Foods (TSN) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Pivotal Research with analyst Timothy Ramey citing the broiler price-fixing alleged in the class action complaint filed on September 2. 2. SolarEdge (SEDG) was downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman while the firm also downgraded First Solar (FSLR) to Neutral from Buy. 3. CIT Group (CIT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Christopher Brendler saying investors should sell into the rally that will result from the "impressive" price that the company received for its aircraft business and the approval of its capital plan by the Fed. 4. Fifth Third (FITB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Ken Usdin saying the shares are reasonably valued following the recent rally. 5. Blackhawk (HAWK) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst David Chu saying the firm's channel checks indicate that conversions to EMV, the new standard for chip-based debit/credit card transactions, are taking longer than expected, which he believes could impact Blackhawk's 2016 guidance and expectations for 2017. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Blackhawk upgraded to Outperform on valuation at CLSA
As previously reported, CLSA upgraded Blackhawk to Outperform from Market Perform and raised its price target to $36 from $34.
