NEW YORK, Feb 26 (Reuters) - The stock of payment processing company Global Payments Inc could rise by 15 percent to $90 in the year ahead as revenue and profits increase, according to Barron's.
The U.S. business magazine said in a story on Sunday that Atlanta-based Global Payments will continue thrive as the use of cash declines, especially internationally.
The company expanded its reach with the purchase last year of a smaller rival, Heartland Payment Systems. That integration will help reduce costs and expand reach, Barron's said.
Global Payments shares currently trade around $79.
