William Blair upgrades Fiserv to Outperform on 'compelling' deal accretion
William Blair analyst Chris Shutler upgraded Fiserv (FISV) to Outperform from Market Perform saying he sees "compelling" accretion from the company's acquisition of First Data (FDC). First Data has been investing to drive growth, the revenue synergies "make sense," and Fiserv's pro forma valuation provides an attractive risk/reward profile, Shutler tells investors in a research note. Fiserv, on a pro forma basis, has another 1.5 to 2 multiple points to gain just to catch up to FIS (FIS), which would equate to around 18% to 25% stock price appreciation, adds the analyst.

Barclays initiates coverage of U.S. payment processors with PayPal as top pick
As noted earlier, Barclays analyst Ramsey El-Assal initiated a group of 20 U.S. companies in the Payments, Processing, and related IT Services sector with Overweight-rated PayPal (PYPL) as his Top Pick. The analyst cites the company's "100% exposure to high-growth digital channels" along with its "clean balance sheet substantial cash position" that bring it a "strategic opportunity. El-Assal is also particularly positive on Overweight-rated WorldPay (WP) based on its strong growth potential from its exposure to "tech-enabled channels" and merger synergies, FirstData (FDC) based on the accelerating growth of its merchant channels, and Square (SQ)," whose Subscription & Services segment is blurring the lines between Payments and software". The analyst contends that the extent of being "tech-enabled" is a key differentiator in the Payments industry, assigning an Overweight rating to Alliance Data Systems (ADS), ADP (ADP), Cardtronics (CATM), Fidelity National (FIS), First Data (FDC), Fiserv (FISV), Fleetcor Technologies (FLT), Global Payments (GPN), Green Dot (GDOT), Mastercard (MA), Total System Services (TSS), Visa (V), and WEX Inc (WEX). El-Assal assigns Equal-weight ratings to EVO Payments (EVOP) and Paychex (PAYX), stating that while the companies are "solid performers" in the space, their valuation is seen as more balanced. The analyst rates MoneyGram (MGI) and Western Union (WU) at Underweight, saying that the former will struggle to re-ignite positive growth as the costs associated with regulatory scrutiny weigh on its profits and the latter will be challenged by "periodic pricing pressure eroding margins over a long period of time."

KeyBanc analyst Josh Beck raised his price target for TSYS to $110 from $100 after the company posted a broad-based beat and raise driven by Issuer and Consumer Solutions. The analyst notes that the pipeline for issuer remains robust and could potentially be additive to top-line growth and tilt the trend from MSD to HSD, an important line of demarcation within the sector. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

As reported earlier, Goldman Sachs analyst James Schneider upgraded FIS to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $128 from $108 as part of his broader sector research note titled Payments & IT Services 2019 Outlook. The analyst sees the company benefiting from its defensive position given that the large portion of its revenues are "tied to mission-critical bank operations." Schneider also believes that investors are "under-appreciating" the gross margin and revenue "quality" improvements made by the management of FIS as it divests the company's non-core businesses to streamline its mix.
