First Cash Financial upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at JMP Securities

JMP Securities analyst David Scharf upgraded First Cash (FCFS) following its merger with domestic pawn company Cash America (CSH). The analyst thinks that the combined company is "a compelling combination of cash-flow rich domestic operations that should fund aggressive return of capital and a long runway of ongoing...expansion in Latin America," The analyst believes that the combined company has several other positive catalysts including a recovery of pawn demand in Mexico, synergies, and an increased focus on returning capital. Target $57.
