Vantiv upgraded on acquisition, risk/reward ratio at Stifel

As noted earlier, Stifel upgraded Vantiv to Buy from Hold. Analyst John Davis calls the company's acquisition of WorldPay "transformative" and "a strategic home run." He expects the stock's multiple to rise given the company's "longer term growth opportunities" and says that its risk/reward ratio is one of the most attractive of any stock he covers. Target to $85 from $63.

Vantiv should be held amid pricing concerns, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey recommends holding shares of Vantiv (VNTV) on any weakness surrounding a negative report highlighting the company's pricing practices. The analyst recommends adding to positions in Global Payments (GPN) and First Data (FDC). Vantiv and its Mercury unit have been aggressive on pricing, but the practices are tied to value-added technology, not an effort to confuse merchants, Jeffrey tells investors in a research note. The analyst also feels the accusations are "impossible to substantiate." He adds that Global Payments and First Data have not pursued pricing practices similar to Vantiv/Mercury. Jeffrey has a Hold rating on Vantiv. The shares are down 3% to $63.21 after Capitol Forum questioned the company's "deceptive" billings practices.

Outperform
Vantiv shares viewed as good value at Baird
Baird analyst David Koning noted Vantiv responded to yesterday's negative report on pricing and still views the shares as a good value. He admitted pricing comparisons are difficult to assess as client size could be bigger and products could be better. The analyst has also stated in the past that pricing is a mild long-term industry risk, but noted it has been quite stable over the past 10 years. Koning reiterated his Outperform rating and $72 price target on Vantiv shares.
