Overweight
ACI Worldwide upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Brett Huff upgraded ACI Worldwide (ACIW) to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $38 from $30. The analyst views the company's acquisition of Western Union's (WU) Speedpay as a "great deal." Shares of ACI only moved 3% despite its guided double-digit accretion, Huff tells investors in a research note. He believes the deal should lead to higher estimates and sees a low likelihood of another offer coming in for Speedpay.

Buy
Dollar General upgraded to Buy at Loop Capital on growth drivers
As previously reported, Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba upgraded Dollar General (DG) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target to $152 from $105. The analyst contends that the company offers "compelling" revenue growth and margin expansion drivers that include the addition of Western Union (WU) services, the fresh/frozen goods distribution initiative, and its Fast Track supply chain and self-checkout initiative. Chukumba also believes that Dollar General's operating margin can expand for the first in 5 years in 2020.
