Roth says Wynn Resorts removing 'a visionary, not an overhang,' cuts to Neutral
As previously reported, Roth Capital analyst David Bain downgraded Wynn Resorts to Neutral from Buy following the news of Steve Wynn stepping down as Chairman and CEO. The analyst believes Wynn's resignation is unlikely to shift investor discussions to fundamentals. Instead, he believes it raises additional questions on potential risks and simultaneously "removes one of, if not the greatest hospitality leaders and visionaries" from a company he created and "actively and intimately molds on a daily basis." Bain lowered his price target on Wynn shares to $170 from $210.

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.
