06:30 EDTVCapital One remains top card issuer pick at Citigroup
In its preview of Q1 results, Citigroup says Capital One (COF) remains its top pick among the card issuers given the company's "strong" card loan growth, capital return and "reasonable" valuation. Citi keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $95 price target. The firm continues to see a "modestly" improving U.S. consumer, and also has Buy ratings on American Express (AXP), Discover (DFS), MasterCard (MA), Synchrony Financial (SYF) and Visa (V). Citi thinks investor sentiment has become more negative for card issuers around provisioning for loan growth with the group posting mixed stock performance thus far in 2015.

07:16 EDTVRising competition may make AmEx targets hard to achieve, WSJ says
Though American Express recently reaffirmed its long-term targets for growing revenue 8% per year or better and earnings per share by 12%-15% per year while increasing operating expenses by less than 3% per year, there are good reasons to be skeptical about its ability to hit those targets, according to The Wall Street Journal's "Heard on the Street" column. Competition from peer Visa (V) as well as big banks such as Citi (C) and Bank of America (BAC) may put pressure on AmExís margins and it is not safe to assume that the company will always fare as well on the Fed's stress tests as it just did, the report stated.

06:40 EDTSPLKSplunk upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Katherine Egbert upgraded Splunk (SPLK) to Overweight saying the stock's valuation is more reasonable following the 13% sell-off since the company's Q4 earnings report. Egbert views Splunk's new distribution agreement with Arrow Electronics (ARW) as a sign of improving demand and she sees the potential for upsell of enterprise-wide license agreements. Shares of the provider of big data products closed yesterday up 95c to $60.18 after analysts at Stephens upgraded the stock Monday morning.
