ADP's Upbeat Q1 Results Earn Price Target Boost; Analyst Trims FIS Price Target On Dismal Q3

  • Mizuho analyst Dan Dolev maintained Automatic Data Processing Inc (NASDAQ: ADP) with a Buy and raised the price target from $257 to $276.

  • The company's Q1 results were strong.

  • The company slightly raised guidance as higher client fund interest drove the overall increase in the outlook, likely offset by higher FX headwinds.

  • From a macro perspective, management sounded constructive.

  • However, it highlighted some caution, like softer bookings growth in international business, and continued to watch the demand environment in global markets.

  • His revenue estimates increased slightly, but the rounded FY growth rate remains the same.

  • Dolev maintained Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. (NYSE: FIS) with a Buy and lowered the price target from $105 to $90.

  • FIS issued disappointing Q3 results and a subsequent profit warning.

The culprits included a slowing level of bank consolidation due to deteriorating credit markets, inflation, cost pressures impacting the expense base, and sales timing and execution due to continued elongation in more significant transactions.

  • He lowered his 2023 expectations and price target.

  • Price Action: ADP shares traded higher by 0.72% at $264.48 on the last check Friday.
