AmEx Q1 EPS appears to be high-water mark for year, says JMP Securities

After American Express reported Q1 EPS that topped the consensus forecast, JMP Securities analyst David Scharf noted that American Express' average quarterly EPS for the remainder of the year is slightly below the Q1 level, even at the high end of management's 2018 guidance. He raised his 2018 EPS estimate to account for the flow-through of Q1 upside and also raised his 2019 estimate based on the increasing momentum in customer engagement. However, he keeps a Market Perform rating on American Express shares, which he views as fairly valued at current levels.

Neutral
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.

Underperform
American Express price target raised to $86 from $81 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Jason Arnold raised his price target on American Express to $86 after the company beat on Q1 earnings beat and updated its FY18 outlook to the upper end of its prior guidance. Despite the stronger results however, the analyst remains concerned with the heightened competition, uncertainty around the pending Department of Justice lawsuit, and relative returns. Arnold keeps his Underperform rating on American Express, saying the upside/downside risk on shares is "less exciting".
