General Motors' (GM) upcoming Cadillac CTS is the only car firmly scheduled to launch in the U.S. with vehicle-to-vehicle communications, or V2V, but the industry has promised that V2V will revolutionize safety and Cisco (CSCO) joined automakers earlier this month to brief the FCC on plans to test airwave sharing soon, said The Wall Street Journal.

Pacific Crest analyst Josh Beck shifted his preference to MasterCard (MA) from Visa (V) and upgraded the stock to Overweight from Sector Weight.

The changes are also positive for eBay's (EBAY) PayPal and mixed for American Express (AXP), Beck tells investors today in a research note. He points out his preference for MasterCard relative to Visa follows the latter company's outperformance over the past year. Beck has a $110 price target for MasterCard shares. The stock closed yesterday down 14c to $93.08.
