Visa, MasterCard price targets raised ahead of earnings at Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette said his data tracker suggests slightly weaker consumer spending this quarter, particularly in international markets, indicating some deceleration in payment trends in the March quarter for Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA). However, he believes this "noise" is already reflected in Street estimates and he believes the benefits the companies are seeing from improving computing power, greater scale, secular growth drivers and "relatively resilient" consumer spending trends should persist. Ahead of the card processors' earnings reports, Faucette raised his price target on Visa to $173 from $165 and on MasterCard to $259 from $250 and he keeps Overweight ratings on both stocks.

MasterCard, Visa may benefit from China trade deal, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Joseph Vafi speculates that the U.S.-China trade deal could be a positive for MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V), neither of which has any "material" operations in China at this time, by resolving the countries' intellectual property dispute. The analyst notes that Chinese negotiators appear to be "somewhat willing" to negotiate the IP issue, and a concession allowing U.S. firms to operate on the mainland without a local partner could "grease the skids for eventual approval of domestic business licenses" for payment networks. Vafi is keeping a Buy rating on both MasterCard and Visa with unchanged price targets of $232 and $157 respectively.

Visa price target raised to $175 from $151 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Bill Carcache raised his price target for Visa (V) to $175 from $151 ahead of the company's Q1 results. Visa does not deserve to trade at a "2.5 turn discount" to MasterCard (MA) when it is generating revenue growth that is on par, Carcache tells investors in a research note. While Visa "is certainly less emphatic" about its long-term growth prospects, its growth potential isn't "meaningfully different" and its valuation multiple should "grind its way closer" to MasterCard's over time, says the analyst. He keeps a Buy rating on both stocks.

Piper says FinTech secular drives 'remain strong' into Q1 results
While absolute and relative valuations in FinTech are back near the all-time highs, the Federal Reserve "has moved from a headwind last Fall to a Neutral factor for economic growth and equity valuations," Piper Jaffray analyst Jason Deleeuw tells investors in a research note. Also, the ongoing secular drivers for FinTech "remain strong" as global payments and business ecosystems digitize, says the analyst. He remains constructive on FinTech names heading into Q1 earnings and also tells investors to look at some mortgage/real estate services stocks. Deleeuw's top ideas are Black Knight (BKI), Redfin (RDFN), Euronet (EEFT) and Cannae Holdings (CNNE). He also boosted his price target for Overweight-rated Euronet to $171 from $159, for Overweight-rated Global Payments (GPN) to $163 from $152, for Overweight-rated MasterCard (MA) to $272 from $262, for Neutral-rated PayPal (PYPL) to $104 from $97, for Overweight-rated Visa (V) to $191 from $178 and for Neutral-rated Worldpay (WP) to $115 from $101.

MasterCard deal for Vyze may be positive for Curo, Rent-A-Center, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Vincent Caintic said Mastercard's (MA) acquisition of Vyze, which provides a platform that links retailers with lenders, is a potential positive for Curo Group (CURO) and Rent-A-Center (RCII), whose "Zibby" and AcceptanceNow are part of the Vyze network. The tie-in with Mastercard may provide more loan and lease application flow to both Zibby and AcceptanceNow, said the analyst. Caintic views the news as more mixed for Alliance Data (ADS), stating that he expects Mastercard's relationship to result in more application flow to Vyze partners, but this may take away from flow to Alliance's cards and lessens the importance of the private label platform.
