What are Wall Street analysts saying about First Data stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about First Data stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "First Data's first-quarter 2019 earnings came in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate and revenues beat the same. The company continues to benefit from its growing enterprise business. Appropriate segmentation of business allows the company to strengthen its global client base and further globalize its offerings. Acquisitions and strategic partnerships and agreements have been playing a significant role in shaping the growth trajectory of First Data. The company has outperformed its industry in the past year. On the flip side, acquisition related integration risks are likely to weigh on the company’s balance sheet. Its global presence makes First Data vulnerable to foreign exchange risk. The company's three business segments experience seasonality, with stronger demand in the fourth quarter and weaker demand in the first quarter relative to second and third quarters." (5/14/2019) 2. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We are revisiting TiVo Corporation (TIVO) ahead of our hosted management meeting at CES on Tuesday, 1/8, in order to both rationalize the necessity to get an update on new technology development by the company and highlight a detail in last week’s 8-K filing that we believe to be particularly timely." (1/7/2019) 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We maintain our Neutral rating on FDC and lower our PT to $20 from $23 given a lower outlook due to FX. Our Neutral rating is based on the company’s below-industry growth rate and comparative leverage. Quarterly top- line results were below FactSet expectations as all segments missed, due to FX and divestitures in the GFS business, whose impact was greater than expected. GBS a point of focus, was up in the mid-single digits on an organic constant currency (cc) basis. Total GBS decelerated to 6% organic growth from 8% last quarter."
