FTC probing Visa, MasterCard over debit card transactions, Bloomberg reports

The Federal Trade Commission, as part of a preliminary inquiry, has been reaching out to large merchants and their trade groups over Visa's (V) and Mastercard's (MA) policies that can prohibit merchants from routing card transactions over alternative debit networks, Jenny Surane of Bloomberg reports, citing people with knowledge of the matter. At issue is whether Visa and Mastercard and large debit card issuers are blocking retailers from routing some mobile wallet payments and tap-to-pay transactions over alternative networks such as Pulse, NYCE and Star, sources told Bloomberg.

Visa setup attractive for 2020, says Jefferies
Visa reported a 3% earnings beat relative to consensus driven by top-line upside and a lower tax rate, Jefferies analyst Trevor Williams tells investors in a research note. The analyst views the company's fiscal 2020 guide as better than some feared and believes it implies continued momentum from the second half of 2019 through 2020. He continues to like the near-term setup for the shares and keeps a Buy rating on the name with a $210 price target.

Visa price target raised to $239 from $231 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham raised his price target on Visa to $239 and kept his Outperform rating after its Q4 earnings beat and encouraging FY20 guidance driven by improved incentives, reduced operating costs, and lower assumed tax rate. The analyst further cites "encouraging" FY20 guidance, adding that the stock remains his top recommendation among U.S.financial technology, large-cap banks, specialty lenders, and asset manager companies. Fotheringham also raises his FY21 EPS view on Visa by 6c to $7.41.

MasterCard price target raised to $348 from $328 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham raised his price target on MasterCard (MA) to $348 and kept his Outperform rating after its "broad-based" Q3 earnings beat. The analyst believes that the company can grow its revenue faster than previously expected given its exposure to fast-growing international markets, B2B payment flows, and cross-border volume, offsetting its indicated higher marketing spend. Fotheringham prefers Visa (V) to MasterCard however due to a relative valuation discount.

Global Payments price target raised to $186 from $162 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham raised his price target on Global Payments (GPN) to $186 after its Q3 revenue beat driven by better margin and stronger growth in Europe in spite of the Brexit related concerns. The analyst adds that while the company also provided higher synergy targets, he is keeping his Market Perform rating on the stock with preference toward Visa (V), MasterCard (MA), and PayPal (PYPL) due to more attractive valuations.

MasterCard price target raised to $315 from $291 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette raised his price target on MasterCard shares to $315 from $291 following the company's Investment Community Meeting last week. The intra-quarter data shared by the company should ease some near-term macro concerns and the event left him feeling confident in "the key pillars" of his Overweight thesis, Faucette tells investors. MasterCard is also making notable progress on its longer term initiatives, which should support growth beyond the company's 3-year outlook, added Faucette.

PayPal payment processor deal beats card networks to China, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Joseph Vafi said Paypal's (PYPL) disclosure of its controlling stake in Chinese payment player GoPay has material strategic implications longer term. The analyst notes the deal allowed PayPal to beat both Visa (V) and Mastercard (MA) into the Chinese market and could be a conduit to drive meaningful cross-border payments volume allowing it to continue to sustain mid 20% payment volume for the next several years. Vafi reiterated his Buy rating and $118 price target on PayPal shares.
