07:32 EDTV, MAPacific Crest shifts preference to MasterCard, upgrades to buy
Pacific Crest analyst Josh Beck shifted his preference to MasterCard (MA) from Visa (V) and upgraded the stock to Overweight from Sector Weight. Beck believes interchange legislation in Europe may have an unintended consequence of benefiting global open-loop payment networks, favoring both MasterCard and Visa. The changes are also positive for eBay's (EBAY) PayPal and mixed for American Express (AXP), Beck tells investors today in a research note. He points out his preference for MasterCard relative to Visa follows the latter company's outperformance over the past year. Beck has a $110 price target for MasterCard shares. The stock closed yesterday down 14c to $93.08.

12:39 EDTSREWells identifies NextEra, Sempra as among favorite utility names
Utilities as a group have dropped in recent months and there are several names in the sector that offer relative value and exposure to secular growth trends, Wells Fargo stated in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: The utilities sector is trading at a forward multiple that is 93% of the S&P 500, versus the ten year average of 102%, according to Wells. Moreover, utilities are "slightly cheap" relative to interest rates, the firm thinks. NextEra Energy (NEE) and Sempra Energy (SRE) have the best growth opportunities in the utility space, according to Wells. They also have proven management teams and are well-positioned to exploit long-term trends, including renewable energy and energy infrastructure, the firm believes. ITC Holdings (ITC) has reached an attractive entry point and, to a degree, offers a near-term hedge against an interest rate increase, according to the firm. Edison International (EIX) and Xcel Energy (XEL) are underappreciated regulated utilities, added Wells. Edison trades in-line with its peers despite superior EPS growth potential and Xcel trades at a 3%-6% discount to the sector despite its at least in-line EPS growth and comparable regulatory risk, which might ease, the firm added. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, NextEra rose 0.5%, Sempra gained 0.6%, Edison added 0.6%, Xcel climbed 0.4% and ITC was little changed.
