Oppenheimer analyst Glenn Greene raised his price target for Global Payments (GPN) to $121 saying he remains optimistic on the company's organic growth and margin opportunities.

He also raised his price target for First Data to $23 from $21 and for Worldpay to $85 from $77. Greene keeps Outperform ratings on all three names.

Vantiv price target raised to $82 from $72 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Keane raised his price target for Vantiv (VNTV) to $82 saying the company is well positioned over the medium term to capitalize on the secular shift toward e-commerce/omni-channel acquiring. Vantiv and Global Payments (GPN) are growing both integrated and e-commerce channels "strong double digits," Keane tells investors in a research note on Merchant Acquiring. He has a Buy rating on both names.

Global Payments price target raised to $115 from $103 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Paulo Ribeiro raised his price target on Global Payments to $115 and kept his Outperform rating after the company beat on Q3 earnings and raised FY17 guidance. Ribeiro says the quarter showcases the company's strong business model as it "cross-pollinates" software-driven solutions across geographies while gaining market share and expanding margins. The analyst cites the successful rollout of Realex e-commerce and Omni channel technology across Europe, OpenEdge into Canada, TouchNet in APAC and Brazil, and investment in direct sales in Europe as positive milestones for the company's global strategy.

Credit Suisse analyst Paul Condra raised his price target for Global Payments to $108 from $100 on valuation. While the analyst notes that Q3 was consistent with its pattern of beat-and-raise results, he believes it was not the kind of blowout needed to push the stock higher after the strong run-up in the past month. Nonetheless, Condra is encouraged by strong underlying organic growth trends and reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Black Knight, Fiserv among beneficiaries of tax reform, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Glenn Greene anticipates Black Knight (BKI), Fiserv (FISV), Jack Henry (JKHY), SEI Investments (SEIC) and TSYS (TSS) could see the largest relative benefits given high percentage of domestic earnings, with 20%-plus estimated earnings accretion. Alternatively, the analyst believes Cognizant (CTSH), First Data (FDC) and Infosys (INFY) could see more modest benefit, considering Cognizant/Infosys' lower proportion of domestic earnings and First Data's elevated level of debt/interest expense. PayPal (PYPL) is not expected to benefit from tax reform, and could actually see a modest increase in its effective tax rate, he adds.

First Data price target lowered to $19 from $24 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey lowered his price target on First Data to $19, warning that the company's two largest JV relationships are faced with structural challenges in the changing Payments technology backdrop. Jeffrey keeps his Buy rating, saying he still believes that First Data can execute a turnaround in U.S. small-medium-business strategy, but also notes the company's "limited ability to influence the JVs' productivity", which drives its global business service growth.

The analyst, who also believes the company's de-leveraging plans are on track, sees "great value" in the stock at its current valuation.

As previously reported, BMO Capital analyst Paulo Ribeiro upgraded Worldpay to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target to $95 from $71. Ribeiro says that while the Vantiv acquisition will be slightly dilutive in FY18 on interest costs, he expects accretion and a higher multiple in FY19 thanks to "improved revenue growth profile and margin expansion on added scale, industry-leading omni-channel and integrated capabilities, and further vertical/SMB opportunities." The analyst also sees further upside to EPS of 5%-7% as a result of U.S. corporate tax changes.
