10:16 EDTWMTGreen Dot sinks after short Wal-Mart extension sparks analyst debate
Shares of prepaid debit card provider Green Dot (GDOT) are falling after the company announced a short-term extension to its deal with Wal-Mart (WMT). Following the extension, analysts at JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank differed in their take on the impact of the news and on Green Dot's shares. WHAT'S NEW: Green Dot announced last night in a regulatory filing that it had received an extension of its deal with Wal-Mart, under which Wal-Mart markets and sells Green Dot's prepaid debit cards under the MoneyGram brand name. The terms of the previous deal were extended through December 31, 2015, Green Dot stated The previous agreement was due to expire in May. BULLISH TAKE: Although the lack of a longer term renewal may worry investors, Wal-Mart and Green Dot probably just need more time to reach a new deal, wrote JPMorgan analyst Tien-tsin Huang in a note to investors today. The extension gives Green Dot more time to reduce its reliance on MoneyGram (MGI), the analyst added. He kept an Overweight rating on Green Dot. BEARISH TAKE: Taking a less optimistic view was Deutsche Bank analyst Ashish Sabadra. Wal-Mart appears to be considering awarding the MoneyGram deal to a competitor of Green Dot, although Green Dot is also in the running for a longer term extension, the analyst stated. Sabadra does not know why Wal-Mart was unable to make a long-term decision, but warns that the short-term extension does not bode well for Green Dot. The analyst kept a $24 price target and Hold rating on Green Dot. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Green Dot shares dropped nearly 5% to $20.74.
07:21 EDTWMTGreen Dot contract extension adds uncertainty, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank says Green Dot's (GDOT) contract extension with Wal-Mart (WMT) increases uncertainty since the pact was pushed out only seven months instead of being renewed for multiple years. Deutsche believes Wal-Mart needs additional time for its internal review process, and notes its checks indicate the retailing giant has potentially narrowed the MoneyCard contract down to two companies, including Green Dot. The firm thinks the lack of a renewal does not bode well for Green Dot and keeps a Hold rating on the stock.
06:47 EDTWMTGreen Dot, Wal-Mart extend agreement until December 31, 2015
Green Dot (GDOT) disclosed last night in a regulatory filing that it entered into an extension amendment to the Walmart (WMT) MoneyCard Program agreement . Pursuant to the amendment, the parties agreed to extend the term of the agreement to December 31, 2015, and all other terms and conditions of the program agreement remain in effect.

10:19 EDTWMTStaples rumors could attract Amazon, Wal-Mart interest, Forbes contributor says
Speculation over a merger deal, as has been the recent case with Staples (SPLS) and peer Office Depot (ODP), tends to attract larger players that could gain from a transaction of their own with the rumored candidate, so it would not be unusual if (AMZN) or Wal-Mart (WMT) were now to look at Staples as a takeover candidate, according to Forbes contributor Gene Marcial.
