Morgan Stanley says $13.25 'a reasonable ceiling' for Euronet bid for MoneyGram

Morgan Stanley analyst Danyal Hussain contends that the initial $13.25 bid made by Alibaba (BABA) affiliate Ant Financial for MoneyGram (MGI) appears to be "a reasonable ceiling" for a new initial offer from Euronet (EEFT) given that MoneyGram's underlying growth has slowed over the past year and the former no longer appears to be competing against another bidder. However, MoneyGram's risk/reward looks skewed to the downside if Euronet does not follow through with a revised bid and could potentially trade below $10 in such a case, Hussain tells investors. He lowered his price target on MoneyGram shares to $13 from $18 and keeps an Equal Weight rating on the shares.

SunTrust says buy Euronet on MoneyGram deal selloff
Euronet's (EEFT) $1.8B offer to acquire MoneyGram (MGI) is "superior in all ways" to Ant Financial's, which is owned by Alibaba (BABA), SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey tells investors in a research note. He expects shares of Euronet to come under pressure this morning "as many investors simply do not like global remittance." Jeffrey recommends using the weakness to buy Euronet, however, as he feels the company has a differentiated franchise and superior management and growth strategy.

BTIG says Western Union positive reaction to MoneyGram news makes sense
BTIG analyst Mark Palmer said he believes the uptick in Western Union (WU) shares after the announcement of Euronet's (EEFT) offer to buy competitor MoneyGram (MGI) makes some sense as Euronet may be seen as less of a competitive threat than Alibaba's (BABA) Ant Financial, which previously struck a deal to buy MoneyGram, and the bid underscores the attractiveness and potential of the global remittance space. However, speculation that if Ant was unsuccessful in its effort to acquire MoneyGram it could look to acquire VeriFone (PAY) or Green Dot (GDOT) "makes less sense," said Palmer.

Euronet would benefit if Moneygram deal blocked, says DA Davidson
After media outlets reported that the U.S. government could block the acquisition of Moneygram (MGI) by Alibaba's (BABA) Ant Financial, DA Davidson analyst Peter Heckmann indicates that such a development would help Euronet (EEFT). He notes that Euronet previously made an unsuccessful bid for Moneygram. He believes that if Euronet is able to acquire Moneygram, the deal would be "transformational" and " would provide visibility to attractive revenue and earnings growth into 2020". Conversely, if Ant acquires Moneygram, Euronet and Western Union (WU) could come under increased pressure, the analyst stated. He keeps a Buy rating on Euronet. .

MoneyGram downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Tien-tsin Huang downgraded MoneyGram to Underweight and cut his price target for the shares to $13 from $18. It is more likely than not that the Ant Financial deal will be blocked by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, Huang tells investors in a research note. He also believes weakness in trends year-to-date has likely hurt MoneyGram's standalone value.

Alibaba fundamentals the best among mega-cap internet names, says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson says the recent weakness in Alibaba stock can be attributed in part to sector rotation from the large-cap internet plays and overall weakness in the Asian stocks. The analyst notes that the consensus forecast for the company in Q3 is likely to be conservative, as it heads into "strong seasonality, solid consumption trends and continued monetization improvements." Sanderson keeps his Buy rating and $220 price target on Alibaba, adding that investors should "buy the recent weakness".

Stifel analyst Scott Devitt resumed coverage of JD.com (JD) with a Buy rating and a $48 price target, saying he views the company and Alibaba (BABA) as well-managed and well-positioned leaders in China that "have effectively shut Amazon out" of the e-commerce market in the region. Devitt predicts JD should triple its 2013 market share to about 18% share by year-end and that third-party can exceed 50% of JD's gross merchandise volume within the next several years.

Barclays says NetEase entering investment mode, cuts target to $315
Barclays analyst Gregory Zhao expects NetEase (NTES) to escalate its marketing efforts to "cement the growth" of its new mobile games and e-commerce services. With Tencent (TCEHY) and Alibaba (BABA) dominating China's mobile gaming and e-commerce spaces, NetEase has to spend more marketing dollars to promote its brand image and acquire new users, Zhao tells investors in a research note previewing the company's Q4 results. The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $315 from $325 and keeps an Equal Weight rating on the shares. Deutsche Bank this morning upped its price target for NetEase to $380 and said it believes the stock is headed to $400.

Euronet pullback yesterday a buying opportunity, says Lake Street
Lake Street analyst Josh Elving recommends using yesterday's pullback in shares of Euronet Worldwide following an analyst downgrade as a buying opportunity. Elving attributes the selloff to concerns surrounding the company's ability to maintain a strong Dynamic Currency Conversion business in Europe following an inquiry by an advocacy group seeking to address high fees in cross border transactions. The majority of DCC revenue for Euronet are at the ATM, the analyst tells investors in an email after speaking with CEO Mike Brown. Further, Elving believes the likelihood of any major changes in Europe is "low and a long way off." He keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $100 price target.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.
