12:29 EDTEBAYPayPal to pay $25M to settle CFPB charges of deceptive advertising
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced earlier that it is filing a complaint and a proposed consent order against PayPal (PYPL) for illegally signing up and billing tens of thousands of consumers for its online credit product, PayPal Credit. The Bureau alleges that PayPal, which is scheduled to be separated from eBay (EBAY), lured in consumers to this product with deceptive advertising, signed up people without them knowing it, and then mishandled billing disputes when they arose. Under the CFPB's proposed order, PayPal would return the $15M that it illegally took from consumers and it would pay a $10M penalty for its wrongful actions.

07:32 EDTEBAYPacific 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 EDTEIXWells 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.

06:13 EDTEBAYISS, Glass Lewis advise Intel investors to vote 'no' on eBay CEO, WSJ reports
ISS and Glass, Lewis & Co, two influential proxy advisory firms, are recommended Intel (INTC) investors vote against the reelection of eBay (EBAY) CEO John Donahoe to the company's board, The Wall Street Journal reports. Citing what it characterized as a poor attendance record, Glass Lewis commented "We view this as a failure by this director to fulfill a fundamental responsibility to represent shareholders at such meetings," while ISS said Donahoe "lacked a valid excuse" for attending less than 75% of the meetings held by the Intel board and committees he serves on in 2014. Intel's annual shareholders meeting is scheduled for May 21. Reference Link

12:42 EDTSBACAnalyst bullish on tower companies after meeting with American Tower
American Tower's (AMT) outlook has improved, and it should report strong 2016 results, research firm Pacific Crest wrote in a note to investors earlier today. American Tower owns towers used by cell phone carriers. WHAT'S NEW: After hosting a non-deal roadshow with American Tower, Pacific Crest analyst Michael Bowen said he had an "increasingly positive outlook" on the company in particular and the cell phone tower sector in general. Carrier tower applications rose last quarter, versus the second half of 2014, Bowen quoted American Tower and its peers as saying. This increase appears to bode well for the sector's performance in the second half of 2015 and 2016, according to Bowen, who expects American Tower to have strong 2016 results. The analyst predicts that American Tower's adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, will increase about 9% in 2015 and 10.6% in 2016. However, the company estimated that its AFFO growth "could approach" mid-teen percentage levels if it decides not to acquire any more towers, according to Bowen. Additionally, American Tower reported that it believes it can eventually more than double the nearly 18,000 towers it owns in Brazil, Bowen reported. The analyst recommended that investors buy the stock. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, American Tower was flat at $93.56. Other tower owners were also little changed, as Crown Castle (CCI) was flat at $83, and SBA Communications (SBAC) added 0.7% to $116.21.
