IRS temporarily suspends Equifax contract after breach report, Politico reports

The Internal Revenue Service has temporarily suspended the $7.2M contract it granted to Equifax to verify the identities of taxpayers when they establish accounts on its website, Politico reports. The short-term suspension means that taxpayers cannot create new accounts through Secure Access, a program which gives them access to online records and transcripts, the report says. The move follows media reports that the Equifax website may have been compromised again, the report says. CNBC reported that the company said its systems were not compromised a second time. "The IRS emphasized that there is still no indication of any compromise of the limited IRS data shared under the contract. The contract suspension is being taken as a precautionary step as the IRS continues its review," agency spokesman Matthew Leas said, according to Politico. Reference Link

Symantec downgraded to Underperform at Cowen
As reported previously, Cowen analyst Gregg Moskowitz downgraded Symantec (SYMC) to Underperform from Market Perform as he believes the recent spike in its price following the disclosure of the Equifax (EFX) breach is overdone. He also said its organic growth has been sluggish, its valuation is no longer cheap, and next-gen vendors are gaining traction. Moskowitz maintained his $31 price target on Symantec shares.

Wells Fargo reiterates Outperform on Equifax after Congressional testimony
Wells Fargo analyst William Warmington reiterates an Outperform rating on Equifax with a $127 price target following three days of Congressional testimony by former CEO Rick Smith. The legislative proposals discussed were either high-probability/low-impact, like requiring companies meet minimum cybersecurity standards and have a reaction plan in event of a breach,or low-probability/high-impact, like allowing consumers to opt out of having Equifax track their data and mandatory per-account fines for data breaches, Warmington tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects investor focus to shift to Equifax's preliminary 2018 guidance on its upcoming Q3 earnings call. He thinks the company's long-term growth model remains intact and introduced above-consensus 2019 revenue and earnings per shares estimates of $3.77B and $6.80. Many investors expect 2018 to be a "transition year" with revenue and costs impacted by the breach, Warmington writes.

Political theatrics aside, JPMorgan expects reasonable credit bureau reform
Former Equifax CEO Rick Smith's testimony in front of Congress today will bring a fair amount of political theatrics, but ultimately, any regulatory changes for the credit bureau industry is likely to be "reasonable and manageable," JPMorgan analyst Andrew Steinerman tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on shares of Equifax.

William Blair, despite estimate cuts, positive on Equifax risk/reward
William Blair analyst Timothy McHugh lowered his estimates for Equifax to account for the data breach. The analyst cut his 2017 earnings per share estimate by 23c to $5.83, 2018 estimate by 83c to $5.91, and 2019 estimate by $1.05 to $6.35. Equifax will exclude some of the short-term items directly associated with the breach from its adjusted earnings, so the estimates do not include those items, McHugh tells investors in a research note. He now assumes organic growth for Equifax of 2% in 2018 and 6% in 2019. The analyst, while admitting the stock's multiple will not return to historical levels "anytime soon," views the company's risk/reward profile as "positive at current levels, particularly for patient investors." He keeps an Outperform rating on Equifax.
