13:04 EDTMAEarnings Preview: MasterCard to report after mixed competitor results
MasterCard (MA) is scheduled to report third quarter earnings before the market opens on October 30, with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 AM ET. MasterCard is a credit card network. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 78c on revenue of $2.45B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 76c-81c on revenue of $2.41B-$2.49B. LAST QUARTER: MasterCard reported higher than expected second quarter profit and revenue, and said that its processed transactions jumped 12% in Q2. However, on September 17 the company estimated that its fiscal 2014 revenue growth would be at the lower end of its 2013-2015 compound annual growth rate target of 11%-14%. COMPETITORSí RESULTS: American Express (AXP) reported higher than expected profits but roughly in-line revenue on October 15, while Capital Oneís (COF) profits came in below expectations and its revenue was slightly higher than expected. A number of large banks, including JPMorgan (JPM) and Citigroup (C), said that they had seen the credit trends of customers improve last quarter. STREET RESEARCH: Barron's recently sounded a positive note on MasterCard, saying that the stock "looks reasonable" and could gain 15% in 2015, as its earnings look set to increase 15% over the next year. Also upbeat was Piper Jaffray, which predicted on October 13 that MasterCard's Q3 results would "show solid momentum," as a result of stronger U.S. consumer spending and solid cross-border volume growth. The firm did, however, slightly lower its 2015 estimates for the company, citing foreign exchange and macro headwinds.The firm remained upbeat on the company's longer term outlook, as it believes that the proliferation of mobile payments and mobile devices is accelerating the shift to electronic transactions from cash and checks. Piper trimmed its price target on the name to $88 from $91 but kept an Overweight rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: MasterCard is up 6% in the last six months, but it's up just 4% over the last year.
