Global Payments announces partnership with HSBC Mexico

"We finished 2017 the way we started it: We generated double digit organic growth across our markets in the fourth quarter. 2017 was a terrific year by any measure, and we delivered the fastest rates of organic adjusted net revenue growth, margin enhancement and adjusted earnings per share growth in our history. We also furthered our strategic objectives to expand our presence in faster growth markets with our agreement today to create a new joint venture with HSBC in Mexico. The combination of our technology-enabled distribution with the continuing expansion of our faster growth geographic markets positions us well to continue our exceptional track record of market leading growth. Finally, we are pleased to raise our growth targets in light of the progress we have made in evolving our business mix over the last several years," said Global Payments CEO Jeff Sloan.

Reduce
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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Barclays analyst Paul Cheng upgraded Chevron (CVX) to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $135 from $130. The analyst recommends investors shift to Chevron from Exxon Mobil (XOM), a stock he double downgraded this morning to Underweight. Chevron's fundamentals are improving at a faster pace than many of the other mega majors, Cheng said. 2. Micron (MU) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc by analyst Weston Twigg. Following the company's positive preannouncement amid "strong" DRAM pricing, the valuation and long-term trends "are too compelling to ignore," Twigg said. Micron was also upgraded to Strong Buy from Buy at Needham. 3. Skyworks (SWKS) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital by analyst Ambrish Srivastava, who cited the company's "ability to sustain a higher level of free cash flows to sales ratio than in the past and its commitment to higher capital allocation." Skyworks was also upgraded to Buy from Hold at Summit Insights. 4. HSBC (HSBC) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Santander. 5. RBS (RBS) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill by analyst Michael Helsby, who said the rise in rates has led to a steeper yield curve in the U.K. which should result in higher earnings. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Macquarie upgrades Barclays to Neutral, starts HSBC at Outperform
In a research note on the sector titled "Upside Delayed," Macquarie analyst Robert Sage argues that banking activities in the United Kingdom are facing macro challenges. After restructurings, cost cuts and re-sizing capital bases, the European banking sector "now faces economic headwinds from Brexit," Sage writes after taking over coverage of the space. The analyst upgraded Barclays (BCS) to Neutral from Underperform with a price target of 182p. He believes the shares are trading on low valuation multiples. Sage initiated coverage of HSBC (HSBC) with an Outperform rating and price target of 846p. The analyst says the bank combines an "attractive mixture" of growth, income and improving profitability. Sage downgraded Lloyds Banking (LYG) to Underperform from Neutral with a reduced price target of 57p. The shares trade at relatively high multiples, Sage writes. The analyst also downgraded RBS (RBS) to Neutral from Outperform with a price target of 269p and initiated Standard Chartered (SCBFF) with a Neutral rating and 726p price target.
