10:19 EDTPAYOn Track, USA Technologies rise after Apple Pay seen as positive
Shares of On Track Innovations (OTIV) and USA Technologies (USAT) are moving higher after research firm Northland Capital predicted that both companies would benefit from the launch of Apple's (AAPL) mobile payment system which is based on NFC technology. On Track Innovations sells contactless/NFC readers, while USA Technologies provides products that facilitate electronic payment transactions. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors today, Northland Capital analyst Michael Latimore wrote that his discussions with vending operators indicate that Apple Pay will likely provide a major impetus to upgrade payment terminals, benefiting On Track Innovations and USA Technologies. On Track Innovations has gained share in the contactless/NFC reader market and now sells these readers to most of the vending operators in the U.S., Latimore stated. Accelerated adoption of contactless/NFC technology will help increase the number of contactless/NFC readers that are sold, the analyst believes. Meanwhile, US Technologies' cloud services revenue could accelerate as more vending operators deploy NFC readers, Latimore added. The analyst kept Outperform ratings on both stocks. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, On Track Innovations soared 42% to $4.70, while USA Technologies advanced 7% to $2.20. VeriFone (PAY), which sells point of sale electronic payment devices, gained 4% to $36.
