Capital One Financial Corp. (NYSE:COF): According to Jefferies, the interchange settlement between Visa (NYSE:V), Mastercard (NYSE:MA) and a class of merchant litigants was not as intense as expected, which is positive for Capital One. Jefferies also thinks that the credit interchange cut is nearly one-fourth as severe as the market expected, which it views as lifting a near-term overhang on the shares. The firm maintains a Buy rating and a $72 price target on the stock.
JDS Uniphase Corporation (NASDAQ:JDSU) estimates have been reduced by Jefferies following channel checks which indicated an ongoing Wireline capex environment challenge, but the firm views the near-term risk/reward as positive. Because the firm thinks that JDSU’s results are not correlated with Adtran (NASDAQ:ADTN) and Finisar’s (NASDAQ:FNSR) poor guidance, it maintains a Buy rating but drops the price target from $15 to $13 on the stock.
