What are analysts saying about Mastercard Incorporated stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Mastercard Incorporated stock:
- Barclays PLC analysts commented, "Bottom-line results were in line with expectations as expense management impacted positively despite slower-than-anticipated top-line growth. Moving into '17 and given guidance, we expect further expense discipline with revenue growth guidance coming in slightly below the Street's expectations but potentially conservative, as MA laps easy cross border and macro comps with the possibility to take more pricing action than usual given what may be a less challenging regulatory environment in the United States. Notably, 1H17 should see lower revenue growth and higher expense growth in comparison to 2H17 due to deal timing and a 1H heavy Advertising & Marketing budget. While this quarter showed slightly slower growth than anticipated, we believe the business fundamentals remain sound (and supportive of a mid-20s forward multiple) and see guidance as conservative for 2017. We remain Overweight." (2/1/2017)
- Wedbush analysts commented, "We are assuming coverage with an OUTPERFORM rating, $126 price target (25x our FY18 adj. EPS). We like MA's attractive business model, growth prospects and outlook for increasing shareholder returns. From a 'bigpicture' perspective, we point to a host of growth/scale catalysts, including the disintermediation of cash/checks by electronic payments, networks' increased dominance in the payments eco-system, incremental revenue opportunities from European regulations, incremental catalysts from hyper-growth mobile payments, ACH-based revenue growth opportunities, and potential revenue synergies from MA's consulting practice. MA is well-positioned to post 10-12% and 12-15% in c/c revenue and adj. EPS growth, respectively, during the next few years." (1/20/2017)
According to Zacks Investment Research, "MasterCard shares have outperformed the Zacks categorized Financial Transaction Services industry year to date. The company remains well positioned for growth on the back of its solid market position, ongoing expansion and digital initiatives and significant opportunities from the secular shift towards electronic payments. Notably, the company has filed for four Blockchain patents as it tries to integrate blockchain-based transactions in its own systems. The company also launched artificial intelligence across its global network to provide improved consumer experience. The proposed acquisition of a major stake in VocaLink will strengthen its electronic payment capabilities. Further, the latest dividend hike & share buyback program reaffirmed MasterCard’s commitment to enhance shareholders' value. However, escalating costs, a challenging forex environment and legal issues remain concerns." (12/12/2016)
