Wells Fargo views Alliance Data sale of Epsilon to Publicis as positive
Wells Fargo analyst Timothy Willi notes that Alliance Data (ADS) announced an agreement to sell Epsilon to Publicis (PUBGY) for $4.4B in cash, in a deal that is expected to close in early Q3. The analyst ultimately views this development as a positive, given the accretive nature of the transaction and the stream-lining of Alliance Data's business, which will be better-received by investors. Willi expects further detail on the company's Q1 earnings call, and believes management may look to further refine the business through a sale of LoyaltyOne following the Epsilon sale. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $200 price target on Alliance Data's shares.

Alliance Data sale of Epsilon could unlock shareholder value, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Josh Beck applauds strategic efforts at Alliance Data (ADS) and views the $4.4B sale of the Epsilon marketing business to Publicis (PUBGY) as an unlock of shareholder value provided the 10-times EBITDA multiple. However, the analyst believes the transition within the card business to re-orient towards verticals such as home, children, and beauty remains a work-in-progress. Beck expects in-line results and guidance ex-Epsilon and remains Sector Weight as he looks for better visibility into the evolution of the card business and credit trends.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. CVS Health (CVS) downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer with analyst Michael Wiederhorn saying he views it as more of a long-term opportunity given the potential timeline to execute on its strategy and the near-term legacy business challenges. 2. Infosys (INFY) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank and Investec, to Reduce from Neutral at Nomura Instinet, to Underperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse, to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley, and to Neutral from Buy at Citi and BofA/Merrill. 3. Celanese (CE) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst David Begleiter saying the company's leadership transition creates uncertainty. 4. Alliance Data (ADS) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Stephens and to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital. 5. Wells Fargo (WFC) downgraded to Neutral from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs, to In Line from Outperform at Evercore ISI, and to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill and Buckingham.

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.
