Square upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord

Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Graham upgraded Square to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $90 from $60. The stock closed yesterday down 11%, or $8.42, to $69.03. The recent pullback in the shares creates a long-term opportunity in a "truly disruptive and well-run company," Graham tells investors in a research note. He believes the departure of CFO Sarah Friar is more about going to a promising company as CEO rather than walking away from a risk. Further, Graham sees "plenty of opportunity" for Graham to grow its core business.

JPMorgan expects negative reaction in Square shares from CFO exit
JPMorgan analyst Tien-tsin Huang expects a negative stock reaction in Square on news of Sarah Friar's departure. The CFO is "well-liked" and an "important face of the company," Huang tells investors in a research note. However, the analyst takes comfort knowing that Friar "has built a disciplined financial team at Square focused on high growth and profitability." Further, he's confident that the company will produce a strong list of candidates to reflect her. Huang keeps an Overweight rating on shares of Square. The stock in premarket trading is down 10%, or $7.51, to $69.94.

Sell
Square CFO resignation adds to uncertainty risk, says BTIG
BTIG analyst Mark Palmer maintained his Sell rating and $30 price target on Square (SQ) after its yesterday's announcement that CFO Sarah Friar is planning to step down at the end of the year. The analyst notes that Friar has been viewed as "serving in a role more expansive and crucial than that of a typical CFO" given the divided focus of CEO Jack Dorsey on his position as CEO of Twitter (TWTR). The analyst also maintains his view that Square's "increasing dependence on the extension of credit to its customers" has made its business model more vulnerable to credit market volatility.

Equal Weight
Square likely to be weighed on in near-term by CFO exit, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette gives credit to outbound Square CFO Sarah Friar for managing Wall Street expectations and helping the company deliver consistent "beat and raise" earnings reports. He expects that the stock is likely to be weighed down near-term by the uncertainty around whether the new CFO will be able to match this track record, especially in light of the stock's elevated valuation. Faucette keeps an Equal Weight rating and $75 price target on Square, which is down by about 10% in pre-market trading.

Outperform
Sarah Friar 'major loss,' Square shares still expensive, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Robert Napoli views the departure of Sarah Friar as a "major loss" for Square. Friar was critical to the success of the company, its strategic direction, and the management of growth/investment versus margin expansion, Napoli tells investors in a research note. And while stock has pulled back 24% from its recent highs, it remains expensive at 25 times 2018 and 19 times 2019 enterprise value to revenue, Napoli contends. He keeps a Market Perform rating on Square, which is trading down 6%, or $4.85, to $72.60 in the premarket.
