Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about The Western Union Company stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Western Union’s shares underperformed the Zacks categorized Financial Transaction Services industry, over the past one year. The company’s fourth-quarter 2017 adjusted earnings per share beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Including a charge related to settlements with the U.S. regulators to resolve investigations tied with the company’s oversight of certain agents and anti-fraud program, it reported loss. We remain cautious due to several challenges, including increasing competition and foreign exchange volatility. The company expects GAAP revenues for 2017 to be flat to low-single digit decline. However, we expect the company’s long-term growth to be driven by strategic investments in new products, services and technology. Focus on expansion of customer base, creation of digital infrastructure to boost the electronic channels business should fuel growth." (2/21/2017)
- Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Shares should trade lower tomorrow ' while 4Q itself was roughly in-line (ex. lower tax), '17 guidance is light. WU announced a new strategic initiative, WU Way, which will cost $100M in '17, and which we will include in our estimates as these are costs are required for WU to remain competitive in an increasingly digital-centric industry.
