Square upgraded to Outperform on better growth at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse upgraded Square to Outperform and raised its price target to $15 from $12.

Square upgraded on fundamental outlook at Pacific Crest
As noted earlier, Pacific Crest upgraded Square to Overweight from Sector Weight. Analyst Josh Beck expects the company's payments business and opex efficiency to enable its fundamentals to beat expectations over the next year. The analyst thinks that these catalysts could spur investors to focus on the company's profitability and cash flow, causing the shares to undergo a "positive rerating." Target $15.
