Sector Weight
Worldpay downgraded to Sector Weight after Fiserv deal at KeyBanc
As previously reported, KeyBanc analyst Josh Beck downgraded Worldpay (WP) to Sector Weight from Overweight after the company and FIS (FIS) announced a deal, quickly adding another mega-deal in the wake of Fiserv (FISV)-First Data (FDC) and Global Payments (GPN)-Heartland Payment Systems. The analyst thinks this transaction is likely to expand the M&A discussion around Global Payments, TSYS (TSS), EVO Payments (EVOP), and i3 Verticals (IIIV) and sees paths to accretion should management teams further endorse a scale strategy. Future processing competition could increase among Global Payments, TSYS, First Data, and JPMorgan (JPM), but it remains too early to gauge, he contends.

Worldpay downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette downgraded Worldpay (WP) to Equal Weight from Overweight, stating that he does not foresee regulatory challenges to the acquisition of the company by FIS (FIS). Faucette also said that the FIS/Worldpay and Fiserv (FISV)/First Data (FDC) deals make him incrementally more positive on Global Payments (GPN), which he could see as either a potential acquirer or takeover candidate.

Outperform
FIS added to Best Ideas List at Wedbush based on Worldpay-related revenue
Wedbush analyst Moshe Katri added Outperform-rated FIS (FIS) to the Best Ideas List following its offer to buy Worldpay (WP) and raised his price target to $140 from $110. In a research note to investors, Katri says he believes the transaction, which strategically responds to Fiserv's (FISV) pending acquisition of First Data (FDC), expands FIS' capabilities by enhancing its acquiring and payments offerings while increasing Worldpay's distribution footprint, and accelerating its entry into new geographies.

Fiserv named a Best Idea at Stephens
Stephens analyst Brett Huff named Fiserv (FISV) as his Best Idea, replacing Global Payments (GPN), stating that he thinks 40% accretion from Fiserv's deal for First Data (FDC) is "very doable" even with his conservative assumptions. While telling investors that he still "really likes" Global Payments, Huff said he thinks Fiserv is "more mispriced." After updating his estimates for his accretion model, the analyst raised his price target on Fiserv shares to $110 from $95 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.
