07:32 EDTV, AXP, MAPacific Crest shifts preference to MasterCard, upgrades to buy
Pacific Crest analyst Josh Beck shifted his preference to MasterCard (MA) from Visa (V) and upgraded the stock to Overweight from Sector Weight. Beck believes interchange legislation in Europe may have an unintended consequence of benefiting global open-loop payment networks, favoring both MasterCard and Visa. 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.

07:46 EDTAXPAmerican Express has $850M revenue opportunity with Plenti, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank estimates the coalition loyalty/rewards program Plenti represents a $750M-$850M annual revenue opportunity for American Express (AXP) over the next 3-5 years. Earnings accretion will take time, but returns on equity are likely "very high," Deutsche says in a research note. The firm believes Plenti is an example of how Amex is leveraging its strengths to mitigate the loss of Costco (COST). It thinks Plenti's next program supplier needs to be a grocery chain, and pegs Whole Foods (WFM) as a good candidate. Deutsche keeps a Buy rating on American Express with a $90 price target.
