MoneyGram stock gained 45.72% year till date significantly outperforming the Zacks categorized Miscellaneous Financial Services industry that lost 1.13%. The surge in the share price can be attributed to ongoing merger with Ant Financial.

While on its own, the company has to continually invest in business in order to keep pace with the constantly evolving industry. Consequently, an union with a stable partner will make its journey easier.
