06:30 EDTVCapital One remains top card issuer pick at Citigroup
In its preview of Q1 results, Citigroup says Capital One (COF) remains its top pick among the card issuers given the company's "strong" card loan growth, capital return and "reasonable" valuation. Citi keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $95 price target. The firm continues to see a "modestly" improving U.S. consumer, and also has Buy ratings on American Express (AXP), Discover (DFS), MasterCard (MA), Synchrony Financial (SYF) and Visa (V). Citi thinks investor sentiment has become more negative for card issuers around provisioning for loan growth with the group posting mixed stock performance thus far in 2015.

10:47 EDTCTXSCitrix could be targeted after Informatica deal, says Stifel
Stifel views Citrix (CTXS) as an "interesting name" for the rest of the year and thinks activist investors could get involved if the company's turnaround does not progress quickly enough. The firm calculates that, using a similar take out multiple to what is being paid for peer Informatica (INFA), equates to a $110 price for Citrix. The firm also believes Teradata (TDC) could be viewed as a potential takeout candidate after the deal for Informatica, noting that a takeout premium in line with Informatica’s would yield a price of about $55 per share for Teradata. Stifel has a Buy rating on Citrix and Hold rating on Teradata.

Credit Suisse said Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) recently announced a deal to expand its presence in at-home coffee through K-Cups. The firm sees a relatively modest benefit of approximately 2% to earnings power, but expects any positive earnings momentum to aid Dunkin's currently discounted valuation. Credit Suisse continues to views Dunkin' as one of the most compelling domestic growth stories in the restaurant sector and remains a top pick with a Buy rating and $56 price target.

07:16 EDTVRising competition may make AmEx targets hard to achieve, WSJ says
Though American Express recently reaffirmed its long-term targets for growing revenue 8% per year or better and earnings per share by 12%-15% per year while increasing operating expenses by less than 3% per year, there are good reasons to be skeptical about its ability to hit those targets, according to The Wall Street Journal's "Heard on the Street" column. Competition from peer Visa (V) as well as big banks such as Citi (C) and Bank of America (BAC) may put pressure on AmEx’s margins and it is not safe to assume that the company will always fare as well on the Fed's stress tests as it just did, the report stated.
