Oppenheimer bullish on Visa, MasterCard ahead of results
Oppenheimer analyst Glenn Greene reiterates Outperform ratings for MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V) and $120 and $95 price targets, respectively, heading into results. The analyst is encouraged by "solid" January intra-quarter volume growth, improving gas price trends, strong retail sales growth, and broadly positive card issuer trends. Further, Greene continues to believe that MasterCard and Visa are attractive at current levels, given their defensible market positions and strong long-term prospects. Nonetheless, he prefers Visa relative to MasterCard at present given the continuing U.S. volume boost from the Costco (COST)/USAA wins and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) Sapphire Reserve momentum, apparent conservative guidance, and Visa Europe accretion benefits.

Costco upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Karen Short upgraded Costco Wholesale (COST) to Overweight after her survey of 800 customers indicated more than 80% of them go to Costco stores specifically for food. This suggests the company is "very protected" from Amazon (AMZN), Short tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects Costco's traffic to accelerate amid easing comparisons into the second half of the year. Short also sees the potential for a special dividend from a tax break on foreign cash repatriation. She raised her price target for the shares to $185 from $170.
