American Express valuation fairly reflects growth profile, says Piper Jaffray

Piper Jaffray analyst Jason Deleeuw expects shares of American Express to rally today given the accelerated Q1 revenue growth, "better-than-feared" provision expense and 2018 outlook raise. The year-over-year comparisons get more difficult going forward, but American Express has strong momentum across its business, Deleeuw tells investors in a post-earnings research note. However, the analyst believes the stock's valuation fairly reflects his expectation for a low-teens earnings growth profile with potential upside limited by higher provisioning expense and a competitive card environment. He lowered his price target for the shares to $116 from $122 and keeps a Neutral rating on American Express.

American Express initiated with a Buy at UBS
UBS analyst Eric Wasserstrom initiated American Express with a Buy rating and $111 price target.

He also believes the company will resume "significant" share repurchases by mid-2018.

Outperform
American Express' LT business model 'hitting on all cylinders,' says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Ben Chittenden reiterated his Outperform rating on American Express and has a $117 price target following last week's investor day. American Express has a strong brand that is building out its client touch points and a positive tailwind from tax reform which is driving corporate travel and expense, Chittenden told investors in a research note. He also pointed out that the biggest takeaway from the investor day "wasn't necessarily some updated guidance that one can plug into an earnings model," but that the company's long-term business model is "hitting on all cylinders," with a more confident tone regarding competition and its go-forward strategy. "It's a work in progress, but we continue to like the AXP story," the analyst said.
