12:29 EDTDLLR, CSH, EZPW, FCFSCash America sinks after analyst sees high regulatory risk
Shares of payday lender Cash America (CSH) are falling after research firm Janney Capital downgraded the stock to Neutral from Buy, saying it faces high regulatory risks. WHAT'S NEW: Cash America's risk/reward ratio has become less attractive, as the company faces high regulatory risks and scrutiny in the U.S. and the U.K., Janney Capital analyst Sameer Gokhale wrote in a note to investors earlier today. The U.K. has already placed limits on payday lenders and America's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is in the process of developing rules for the industry, the analyst stated. The CFPB's regulations could limit rollovers of loans and place limits on the size of loans, Gokhale predicted. The new rules could negatively affect Cash America's profitability, warned the analyst, who thinks that the shares appear to be fairly valued and the stock's ability to rise is limited. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Cash America dropped 5.7% to $45.45. Other payday lenders also fell, with First Cash Financial (FCFS) losing 1.4% to $52.33, EZCORP (EZPW) dropping 2.7% to $11.96, and DFC Global (DLLR) retreating 0.5% to $9.35.

07:03 EDTCSHCash America completes spin-off of Enova International
Cash America International (CSH) announced the successful completion of the spin-off of Enova International which will begin “regular way” trading today on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “ENVA.” Cash America’s board of directors began evaluating strategic alternatives for the possible separation of Enova in the spring of 2014, and in July it announced its intent to pursue the spin-off of Enova into a separate public company. The separation creates two companies oriented to serving the capital needs of consumers through distinctively different business models; one through a traditional storefront network and the other solely through the internet. At 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time today, each holder of Cash America common stock received shares of Enova common stock at a rate of 0.915 shares for each Cash America share owned as of November 3, 2014, which was the record date for distribution. The distribution was issued in book entry form only and no physical certificates were issued. Fractional shares of Enova were not distributed, and Cash America shareholders will receive cash in lieu of any fractional shares they would otherwise have been entitled to receive in the distribution. Today’s distribution of Enova qualifies as a tax-free distribution to shareholders of Cash America. Cash America's common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE under the ticker symbol “CSH.” Cash America and Enova now operate as two independent companies. Cash America retains ownership of 20% of Enova following today’s distribution.
