11:03 EDTWRLD, DLLR, FCFS, CSH, EZPWPayday lenders slump after DFC Global lowers forecast
Shares of DFC Global (DLLR) and those of some of its peers in the alternative financial services industry declined after DFC issued worse than expected earnings per share guidance for its third quarter and lowered its view of profit for the full year. WHAT'S NEW: DFC Global announced this morning that it expects earnings per share for the three months ended March 31 to be 20c-24c, compared to the consensus forecast of 63c. The company also lowered its fiscal 2013 earnings per share guidance to $1.70-$1.80 from its prior estimate of $2.35-$2.45. The company cited issues caused by new regulations in the United Kingdom. In early March, a British regulator, the Office of Fair Trading, or OFT, said it would give "payday lenders" 12 weeks to change their business practices. One of the OFT's complaints about the lenders was that they were granting consumers loans that they could not afford to repay, and then profiting from multiple rollovers of those loans. DFC Global said that it has responded to these developments by implementing higher lending standards. The lender obtained 48% of its revenue from the United Kingdom in fiscal 2012, according to the company's annual report. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded payday lending companies include First Cash Financial (FCFS), Cash America (CSH), EZCORP (EZPW) and World Acceptance (WRLD). TODAY'S PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, DFC Global plunged over 18% to $13.59, while First Cash and World Acceptance slid about 2%, Cash America declined 2.7%, and EZCORP fell 3%.

06:28 EDTCSHCash America: Growth largely associated with customer demand for credit products
Management believes that the opportunities for growth in revenue and earnings will be largely associated with customer demand for the credit products provided by the company, which take the form of pawn loans and consumer loans and the disposition of unredeemed collateral by way of consumer spending on retail sales and the commercial sale of refined gold and diamonds. The fourth quarter, during the seasonally important holiday selling season, represents an important period of retail sales for the company, and results will be affected by consumer sentiments during the period. There are various other elements that could affect the growth in revenue, such as the regulation of consumer loan products and the development and growth of additional markets for the company’s e-commerce segment for consumer lending products. As the company enters the fourth quarter of 2014, management anticipates that demand for the company’s consumer loan products will continue on a similar pace to the one it has experienced during the first nine months of 2014, with a continued heavier weighting to the consumer loan portfolio and longer-term installment and line of credit products. Demand for the Company’s pawn lending products during the second and third quarters of 2014 have improved, and management expects a continued growth in the Company’s pawn lending business, but at moderate levels for the balance of 2014 and the first half of 2015.
