MoneyGram Downgraded By JPMorgan After Rising 15%; Brexit Issues Remain

Moneygram Reaches A Fresh Milestone Of Connecting Over 2 Billion Accounts

JPMorgan has downgraded Moneygram International Inc (NASDAQ: MGI) to Neutral from Overweight after the shares rose 15 percent since the last earnings report.

"[S]hares have hovered at the $7 level over the last month, but up ~15 percent since last earnings print, despite mixed news flow that we think could keep the stock range bound in the foreseeable future; hence, we are downgrading shares to Neutral and maintain our $8 PT," analyst Tien-tsin Huang wrote in a note.

On one hand, MoneyGram renewed its largest agent — Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE: WMT) — on May 25, but separately Wal-Mex struck a deal with rival The Western Union Company (NYSE: WU) as a sign that exclusivity is less common.

More broadly, Brexit uncertainty could weigh more on money transfer stocks because of a higher mix of international business, given 45 percent of MoneyGram's revenue stems from non-U.S. locations.

Shares of MoneyGram closed Monday's regular trading session at $7.09. In the pre-market hours Tuesday, shares were down 1.69 percent to $6.97 at time of writing.
