Square price target raised to $37 from $31 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Paul Condra raised his price target for Square to $37 from $31 following its announcement that it is piloting bitcoin sales via its Square Cash app. While the analyst is positive on Square's strategy, to the extent it confers legitimacy on Bitcoin and prompts adoption by other providers, the biggest beneficiary may be the crypto-asset industry. Condra reiterates a Neutral rating on the shares.
