Stock Insights: Visa, Zillow, AXT, Dawson Geophysical, Sina May 3rd

Visa, Inc. (NYSE:V): FBR Capital believes Visa’s disclosure that the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice has issued a Civil Investigative Demand seeking documents and information regarding a potential violation of Section 1 or 2 of the Sherman Act overshadows the company’s better than expected quarterly results. The firm raised its price target for shares to $145 from $120 but reiterates a Market Perform rating on the stock.

Zillow Inc (NASDAQ:Z): ThinkEquity increased its target on Zillow after the company reported Q1 results that the firm views as strong. The firm maintains a Buy rating on the stock.

AXT Inc. (NASDAQ:AXTI): ThinkEquity reduced its target on AXT after the company reported lower than expected Q1 EPS. However, the firm maintains a Buy rating on the shares.

Dawson Geophysical Co. (NASDAQ:DWSN): Pritchard recommends using the recent pullback in shares of Dawson Geophysical as a buying opportunity and keeps a Buy rating on the name with a $55 price target.

Sina Corp. (NASDAQ:SINA): ThinkEquity reports that its proprietary tool showed that user engagement on SINA’s Weibo microblog was down slightly in April. However, the firm views this as encouraging in light of the headwinds facing Weibo, and it expects Weibo to perform well over the longer term. The firm maintains an $87 target and Buy rating on SINA.
