William Blair analyst Robert Napoli came away from Western Union's investor day with greater appreciation for internal efforts to become more efficient to remain a leader in enabling cross-border transactions, which are inherently complex. The analyst is encouraged by management's commitment to expand margins to about 23% by 2022, though he finds this target very challenging. While Napoli was disappointed with management's 2020-2022 revenue target of 2%-3% annual growth, he believes this target could prove conservative if new initiatives gain traction. The analyst has a Market Perform rating on the shares.
