ICE's bitcoin futures launch stalls over CFTC regulation talks, WSJ reports

Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) had planned to launch bitcoin (BTC) futures in November 2018 but the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has so far declined to sign off on the project called Bakkt, the Wall Street Journal's Alexander Osipovich and Gabriel Rubin report, citing people familiar with the matter. The delay is due to a disagreement between ICE and the CFTC over how the project should be regulated and Bakkt's initial plan to store customers' bitcoins ran aground in February when the CFTC said such a plan would require disclosures of the venture's business plan and a public comment period.

Citi upgrades ICE to Buy, puts 'Upside Catalyst Watch' on CME
Citi analyst Ben Herbert upgraded IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $86 from $80. The analyst also placed a "30 Day Upside Catalyst Watch" on his top pick CME Group (CME). He lowered his price target for those shares to $210 from $220 and keeps a Buy rating on the name. On IntercontinentalExchange, the analyst sees a more attractive valuation following the recent pullback and a more favorable volume outlook in 2019. Further, he thinks Data momentum drives an upward bias to revenue estimates in 2019 and 2020. For CME, Herbert expects a favorable NEX Group update relating to margins and revenue opportunities when the company reports Q4 earnings.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Under Armour (UA, UAA) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alexandra Walvis saying Under Armour's gross margins have inflected positively and are set to "expand materially" as the company executes quality of sale initiatives while also benefiting from mix shifts towards international markets and direct-to-consumer. 2. Nike (NKE) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst John Kernan saying he views Nike's gross margin improvement and speed initiatives as key catalysts to near-term and multi-year upside to margins. 3. IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi. 4. TechnipFMC (FTI) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Exane BNP Paribas. 5. Cars.com (CARS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Marvin Fong citing the company's announcement that it is reviewing its strategic alternatives that includes a potential sale last week.

Exchange stocks should be bought on any weakness, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Bedell recommends buying the stock of Exchanges on any weakness. There may some additional downside risk upon earnings reports as investors revise Q1 estimates down to reflect the slow volume start to the year, Bedell tells investors in a research note. However, he recommends using any weakness as a buying opportunity given his view that the exchange stocks are best positioned to outperform in the later stages of a market cycle.

PayPal acceptance lead continues to grow, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette said his quarterly tracker shows PayPal maintains its online acceptance lead versus other digital wallets, with acceptance at 79% of the top 500 U.S. Internet retailers, despite investors being "overly concerned" about potential risk to its lead. In the same note, Faucette pointed out that Bitcoin acceptance remained unchanged, with 4 of the top 500 internet retailers he tracks still accepting the cryptocurrency. The analyst, who expects PayPal will continue to benefit from its lead and increasingly serve as a payment-of-choice for non-Amazon merchants, keeps his Overweight rating and $88 price target on the shares.

PayPal merchant acceptance lead widened in Q4, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette said that PayPal (PYPL) widened its merchant acceptance lead in Q4 as it added a net of 8 of the U.S.'s top 500 internet retailers while the next largest accepted digital wallet, Amazon Pay (AMZN), lost 4 net merchants this quarter. PayPal now has acceptance at 82% of the top 500 U.S. Internet retailers, up from 81% last quarter, while Amazon's acceptance rate slipped to 12% from 13%. MasterCard's (MA) MasterPass gained 1 net new merchant, Visa Checkout (V) gained no net new merchants and Bitcoin acceptance remained unchanged at 4 of the top 500, Faucette added. The analyst, who think PayPal's acceptance lead and consumers' shift toward online purchases should support total payments volume growth at or above the rate of e-commerce, keeps an Overweight rating on PayPal shares and raised his price target to $99 from $97.

Nomura Instinet ups Square price target to $65 on bitcoin boost
Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev raised his price target for Square (SQ) shares to $65 from $64 saying the impact from bitcoin could be meaningful. The stock closed yesterday up $2.10 to $49.13. Opening Square Cash for bitcoin trading earlier this year could drive a "sizable boost" to revenue and profits, driving up to 10% potential upside to adjusted EBITDA guidance, Dolev tells investors in a research note. He sees bitcoin as helping to offset Square's rising investment costs to broaden its international presence. In asking if bitcoin will reshape the future of payments as Square CEO Jack Dorsey often argues, or if it will just be a passing fad, Dolev points out that the company's correlation with the cryptocurrency has been on a downward trend. Square shares are now less correlated with bitcoin than PayPal (PYPL), the payment networks or Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), Dolev contends. He maintains a Buy rating on Square.

Square is not a play on bitcoin, says Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev disagrees with the notion that Square is a play on bitcoin. Cash App downloads have been accelerating despite the slump in bitcoin prices, Dolev tells investors in a research note. For perspective, Coinbase's monthly downloads have turned sharply negative in recent months, the analyst adds. He notes that his firm's payments app tracker shows Square Cash App downloads accelerated in May/June to up 154% year-over-year. Dolev keeps a Buy rating on the shares with an $85 price target. The stock closed yesterday up $1.72 to $64.76.
