It provides merchant transaction processing and acquiring; credit, retail and debit card issuing and processing; prepaid services and check verification, settlement and guarantee services. First Data Corporation is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. " (2/17/2017)

  • Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "While we don't expect a material miss from FDC this quarter, we are somewhat negative into results for three key reasons. First and foremost is valuation. Although the stock is still by far the cheapest in the group on EPS, the recent rally has the stock now trading a half-point premium to TSS despite similar growth prospects and much higher leverage. Second, we continue to be concerned about FDC's domestic acquiring business as relatively high attrition may limit its ability to support revenue growth with pricing. Finally, we note that FCF can be volatile and our model suggests timing differences and seasonality may result in a shortfall this quarter. As a result, while we're still attracted to the longer-term deleveraging story, we continue to wait for a more compelling entry point and/or material progress in turning around merchant acquiring." (1/30/2017)
  • Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We initiate coverage of First Data Corporation (FDC) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $15, offering 6% downside currently. Our Neutral rating is based on the company's lower than industry growth rate and heavy leverage. FDC is the largest merchant acquirer in the U.S. with a strong position in purchase transaction processing and a solid footprint globally. We would like to see growth move closer to industry average and significant progress on deleveraging before getting constructive on the name." (1/26/2017)
