Fiserv initiated with a Buy at Buckingham
Buckingham analyst Chris Brendler initiated Fiserv (FISV) with a Buy rating and a price target of $100, citing his deeper analysis of its First Data (FDC) deal. The analyst calls it a "transformational acquisition" that should lead to "compelling upside" in earnings and the stock price as a result from the companies' cross-sell opportunities and "considerable cost overlap". Brendler expects the market to revalue Fiserv shares as the benefits of the combination "become more evident".

Citi a buyer of top pick Quanta Services at current levels
Citi analyst Andrew Kaplowitz says he's a buyer of Quanta Services at current share levels and that the company remains his top pick in Engineering and Construction. Even after a "relatively strong 4Q earnings report and solid outlook," the stock "continues to tread water," Kaplowitz tells investors in a research note. He believes concerns regarding the mainline pipe rolling over, oil and gas margin needing to be higher, and Electric Power needing large transmission projects to grow are either overblown or will be resolved over time.

Quanta missed out on TransCanada bid, but opportunities remain, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Tahira Afzal noted that TransCanada (TRP) announced the conditional selection of contractors to construct the Coastal GasLink Pipeline Project and pointed out that an unsuccessful bid was made by Quanta Services (PWR). While missing out on this contract is disappointing, Afzal highlights that Quanta remains disciplined on price and said several other pipeline opportunities in Canada could still support the upper end of the company's 2018 oil and gas projections. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on Quanta shares.

FERC order on Mountain Valley removes overhang on MasTec, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Tahira Afzal said the FERC order that appears to allow for EQT Corporation (EQT) to resume close to full construction on the Mountain Valley Pipeline looks to be a clear positive development for MasTec (MTZ) and removes the significant overhang of the potential of having to demobilize a portion of its construction workforce. While MasTec is most exposed to MVP, Quanta Services (PWR) also has some exposure, noted Afzal, who has Overweight ratings on both MasTec and Quanta.
