Market Perform
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.

Syntel 'out of the woods' after tough 2017, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Joseph Vafi raised his price target on Syntel (SYNT) to $34 from $32 and kept his Buy rating following Q1 results that were well ahead of consensus. Vafi says that after a year and a half of top-line contraction, the company finally grew sales, with "solid" performance driven by traction in clients and decelerating headwinds from key client American Express (AXP). The analyst adds that margins were strong, even though there is some concern about "overspending on skill sets".

American Express 'top pick' among Payment Networks, says UBS
UBS analyst Eric Wasserstrom sees American Express (AXP) as his top pick among the Payment Networks, rating the company with a Buy and a $115 price target. The analyst is positive on the broader industry, saying his proprietary data suggests a robust growth trend, with the total addressable market for electronic payments estimated around $95T. Wasserstrom notes that the UBS survey of small and midsized merchants across 4 geographies suggests that 94% of respondents intend to add support to accept electronic payments. More specifically, he expects American Express to show "accelerating discount volumes and loan growth", supporting EPS growth and a high-level stability of profitability. Based on the differentiated view among analysts for American Express earnings, the analyst sees the company as a "beat and raise story". As part of his broader research note, as reported earlier, Wasserstrom has also assumed PayPay (PYPL) at Buy with a $90 price target, Visa (V) at Neutral with a $141 price target, and initiated MasterCard (MA) at Neutral with a $205 price target. He expects PayPal to benefit from "sustained volume growth" driven by engagement of its core constituencies and demand for its processor/gateway services from merchants. For Visa and MasterCard, the analyst sees sustained secular trends of growth in personal consumption expenditures and increasing adoption of electronic payments to drive annual revenue growth rates of up to 11% beyond FY18.
