The Alliance Data Systems Thesis: The company's stock has lost 57% year-to-date, which is 35 percentage points worse than peers and 67 percentage points worse than the broader market, Adelson said in the Tuesday initiation note. "New management has a track record in consumer finance, understand the need to refocus on retail card and drive sustainable growth," the analyst said. The market is overestimating the company's credit risk, while underestimating its shift away from specialty retailers, he said. "After a shutdown-driven drop in revenues in 2Q, we believe a robust recovery in card purchase volumes is already underway. ADS is levered to a V-shaped recovery in consumer spending, which our economists estimate will bounce 8% in 2021e," Adelson said.ADS Price Action: Shares of Alliance Data Systems were trading 3.3% higher to $50.10 ahead of the close Tuesday.Latest Ratings for ADS DateFirmActionFromTo Oct 2020Morgan StanleyInitiates Coverage OnOverweight Jul 2020B of A SecuritiesUpgradesNeutralBuy Jun 2020UBSMaintainsBuy View More Analyst Ratings for ADS View the Latest Analyst Ratings See more from Benzinga * Options Trades For This Crazy Market: Get Benzinga Options to Follow High-Conviction Trade Ideas * Rosenblatt Upgrades Twilio After Segment Acquisition * Ford Has Momentum Heading Into 2021, Benchmark Says In Upgrade(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
