Global Payments price target raised to $92 from $85 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev raised his price target for Global Payments to $92 ahead of the tomorrow's quarterly earnings report. He keeps a Reduce rating on the name. Deciphering the impact of Accounting Standards Codification 606 on fiscal 2018 growth will be critical as it could create a confluence of two conflicting forces, Dolev tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. Excluding 20%-25% of network fees from sales can drive a 1% drag to North America organic growth, but changing the timing of revenue recognition for certain software revenues can boost growth, the analyst writes. He's hopeful on Global Payments' transparency.
