Qudian price target lowered to $19 from $35 at Stifel
Stifel analyst John Davis estimates Alipay's recently announced rate cap could result in as much as a 25% earnings hit to Qudian, but he also believes in that context that the more than 50% correction in the stock is overdone. Headlines about a data leak/breach are unconfirmed, added Davis, who cut his price target on Qudian shares to $19 from $35 but maintains a Buy rating on the stock.

Qudian price target lowered to $20 from $30 at Needham
Needham analyst Mayank Tandon lowered his price target on Qudian shares to $20 from $30, noting recent news that could create near-term headwinds for the company, including Ant Financial announcing a 24% APR cap for all third-party credit services on its Alipay interface, and PBOC and CRBC releasing a new regulation notice that outlined principles and additional guidelines related to the cash loan business in China. Despite these potential headwinds, Tandon believes Qudian's fundamentals remain in tact, and maintained a Buy rating on Qudian shares.

Qudian downgraded to Hold amid China cash loan industry turmoil at Stifel
As previously reported, Stifel analyst John Davis downgraded Qudian to Hold from Buy, stating that the near-term outlook is muddied by expected higher credit losses and a significant shift in business model due to the current turmoil in the Chinese cash loan industry. While he thinks Qudian will ultimately benefit from recent regulations in the form of reduced competition, he prefers to move to the sidelines "while the dust settles," he tells investors. Davis lowered his price target on Qudian shares to $15 from $19.
