07:10 EDTAXP, CVS, GDOTGreen Dot partner CVS may soon offer AmEx prepaid cards, says Jefferies
Jefferies said its channel checks indicate CVS Caremark (CVS), one of Green Dot's (GDOT) largest distribution partners, may offer as soon as next week American Express' (AXP) new prepaid cards. The firm believes the potential loss of share at CVS could represent incremental headline risk for Green Dot and lowered its price target for Green Dot shares to $13 from $17. Jefferies also dropped its 2012 and 2013 earnings estimates for Green Dot citing American Express' recent penetration of Green Dot's key distribution partners Wal-Mart (WMT) and CVS.

13:40 EDTAXPAmerican Express technical notes ahead of results
The shares have been trading largely in a range of $85 to $95 for the past year with the exception of the market dip last October. A breakout above $95 or a breakdown below $85 may therefore be important for gauging how shares will trade post-earnings. At the current price of $87.29, the $85 level is close by and on a disappointment may well best tested. Support below $85 is at $82.86 and $81.35. On a positive surprise, it would be a stretch for the stock to make it above the top of the range at $95 in one step. A failure to break out above $95 would leave the shares range-bound, but potentially with a new range, higher, low. Resistance levels to watch as potential upside objective are at $90.90, $93.30, and $95. On an extreme positive surprise a test of the 52-week high at $96.24 could take place. A breakdown below $85 would be longer-term bearish for price.
