10:56 EDTJPM, MA, WFC, VMasterCard, Visa rise after analysts recommend their shares
Shares of MasterCard (MA) are climbing after research firm Robert W. Baird upgraded the stock to Outperform from Neutral in a note to investors earlier today. Shares of peer Visa (V) are also rising after Pacific Crest initiated coverage on the stock. WHAT'S NEW: MasterCard has a strong business model and fears about the stock may be a bit overdone, Baird analyst David Koning wrote. Credit card data from JPMorgan (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC) indicated that volumes were largely steady versus Q4, so fears about weak Q1 volumes are probably exaggerated, the analyst contended. Meanwhile, MasterCard is unlikely to be badly hurt by ongoing litigation with some merchants, or by weakness in Russia, Koning added. Similarly, MasterCard could lose some market share to MCX, a new mobile payment platform being introduced by retailers, but the impact should not be very significant, according to the analyst, who recommended buying the stock following its recent weakness. Koning raised his rating on the shares to Outperform from Market Perform and has an $83 price target on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Research firm Pacific Crest earlier today initiated coverage of Visa (V) with an Outperform rating. Visa is well-positioned to benefit from the proliferation of mobile payments and the extension of digital payments to under served markets, the firm contended. It set a $241 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, MasterCard rose $1.83, or 2.66%, to $70.51, while Visa gained 1.8% to $200.16.
