11:39 EDTV, AXP, TGT, MATarget could be fined over $1 billion for card breach, analyst says
Target (TGT) may be fined $400 million to $1.1 billion for its credit card data breach late last year, research firm Jefferies wrote in a note to investors last week. WHAT'S NEW: Target may be fined up to $1.1 billion for its violation of Payment Card Industry, or PCI, standards as a result of the data breach, Jefferies analyst Daniel Binder wrote. PCI was founded by Visa (V), MasterCard (MA), American Express (AXP) and other major credit card networks to adopt security controls for handling credit and debit card data. In addition to leading to a fine, the incident could hurt Target's sales, and lower the profits that it receives from holders of its credit card, Binder stated. The data breach could also hamper Target's ability to meet its $4B share buyback target for fiscal 2015, added Binder. He now expects the company to buy back only $1B of its shares in fiscal 2015, and he reduced his fiscal 2015 earnings per share estimate for the company to $4.29 from $4.41. The analyst trimmed his price target on the shares to $56 from $59 and kept a Hold rating on the stock. Contrary to a previous version of this story, PCI does not levy fines. Rather individual payment brands may impose financial consequences on businesses that are not compliant with PCI standards. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Target shares are down 2%, or 98c, to $55.66.

American Express stated to CNBC that the company is "disappointed" with a court decision in an antitrust matter and plans to file an appeal. "The court's ruling will not provide any benefit to consumers and will, in fact, harm competition by further entrenching the two dominant networks. We continue to believe that the Department of Justice's arguments are flawed and believe we should prevail on appeal," American Express stated. Reference Link
