Conventional wisdom says that insiders and 10 percent owners really only buy shares of a company for one reason -- they believe the stock price will rise and they want to profit from it. Revlon Inc (NYSE: REV) saw a director step up to the buy window last week. The beauty and personal care products maker posted disappointing earnings and warned of material weakness in its reporting last week.

Fidelity National Information Services Inc. COO Bruce Lowthers sees ample opportunities in his company's $43 billion acquisition of Ohio-based ecommerce leader Worldpay (NYSE: WP). The pairing brings FIS's (NYSE: FIS) banking customers, which include 45 of the world's 50 largest banks, together with Worldpay's more than 1 million merchant customers and creates major cross-selling opportunities for the company's more than 3,000 salespeople, Lowthers told the Business Journal. The merger will lead to new products, such as store credit programs, that build on the companies' different strenghts, Lowthers added, and it brings together the two companies' patchwork of foreign markets.

(NYSE: FDC) in January.
Picking up where they left off last week, the bulls logged another gain on Monday. The S&P 500's close of 2,832.94 yesterday was the best close since early October, though volume was suspiciously light.General Electric (NYSE:GE) led the way with a 2.4% gain, continuing a recovery driven by faith that a bigger-picture turnaround from the company is brewing. Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) wasn't far behind with its 1.8% advance, however, pushing it well past a hump discussed in detail late last week.Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) proved to be the biggest drag. Shares of the social networking giant fell 3.3% mostly thanks to a downgrade from Needham. Analyst Laura Martin is concerned that changes to the company's business model could crimp earnings. Martin also noted the adverse impact of what's quickly becoming a mass exodus of senior-level executives.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHeaded into Tuesday's trading action, however, it's the stock charts of Invesco (NYSE:IVZ), Fidelity National Information Services (NYSE:FIS) and Gap (NYSE:GPS) that are worth the closest looks. Here's why, and what to look for. Fidelity National Information Services (FIS)With nothing more than a quick glance it would be easy to jump to a bullish conclusion about Fidelity National Information Services, or as it's more commonly called, FIS. The 50-day moving average line has crossed back above its 200-day moving average line as of the end of last week, and it hit a new multiyear high yesterday. * 7 Small-Cap Stocks That Make the Grade In many regards, though, the one thing more alarming than losing ground is a failed breakout thrust. That's what we saw take shape with FIS stock on Monday, leaving traders with a tough choice to make, and soon. Click to Enlarge • The volume surge from Monday stems from news surrounding the recently-announced acquisition of Worldpay that Fidelity intends to make. Investors initially loved the idea, buying in earnest. That optimism quickly faded though, turning into a "sell the news" event.• Regardless of the underpinnings, if this is indeed a "sell the news" minded response, yesterday's action serves as a potential pivot.• That pivot will only be complete, however, if we see a close below the gray 100-day moving average line sometime this week. Gap (GPS)In the same vein as the FIS chart, shares of Gap have just gone through a volatile shakeup that actually clears the deck for some more meaningful movement. But, GPS is much further along in the process, and ultimately positioned to move in a bullish rather than a bearish direction. And, like Fidelity National, there's a little more work that needs to be done to seal the deal. Click to Enlarge • The big bullish move from early March was impressive, but clearly not built to last. Two weeks later, the gap had been closed (for the better).• Friday's bar is telling … the shape of it in particular. Though the stock closed at a loss for the day, it also closed well off the low for the day. The intraday reversal on high volume suggests the buyers were starting to wade back in.• A close back above the 100-day moving average line, plotted in gray, would cement the second wave of the recovery effort in place. Invesco (IVZ)Back on Feb. 26, Invesco was featured as a breakout candidate. Straight-line resistance had been snapped, and a key moving average line was on the verge of being hurdled. An upside-down head and shoulders pattern was even near completion.All of that has played out as suggested, even if the rally took a breather a couple of weeks ago. The advance since then has confirmed and renewed that rebound work. But, for traders that didn't step in then, there remains a great deal of room for more recovery. Click to Enlarge • The head-and-shoulders pattern is evident on both stock charts.• The bears' best shot at quelling the rally effort was preventing the move above last month's high around $19.90, marked with a blue dashed line.• Even with the recent strength, Invesco shares are still down roughly 40% from their early 2014 high, and below their white 200-day moving average line. That's the next most plausible technical resistance.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

The financial technology sector is consolidating fast, with global payments set to reach $3 trillion a year in revenue by 2023 as more people switch from cash to digital payments for online and high street sales, consulting firm McKinsey predicts. "Scale matters in our rapidly changing industry," said FIS Chief Executive Gary Norcross, who will lead the combined powerhouse in banking and payments infrastructure. Growth in payment systems has kept deals rolling even as merger moves in other sectors have stalled on concerns about trade tensions and a global economic slowdown.
Fidelity National Information Services is buying Worldpay for about $35 billion to combine forces as financial transactions increasingly move online. Fidelity, or FIS as it is known, is a more traditional payment service provider, supporting more staid practices such as banks transactions. Worldpay is the "crown jewel" of the e-commerce niche, said Instinet analysts Dan Dolev and Conan Leon.
Fidelity National Information Services on Monday agreed to buy WorldPay for $43 billion in cash and stock, as a wave of consolidation continued in the payment processing industry.
