In a report published Friday, Morgan Stanley analyst Smittipon Srethapramote reiterated an Equal-Weight rating on The Western Union Company (NYSE: WU).

In the report, Morgan Stanley noted, “While drivers for the underlying remittance market remain positive, WU's revenue/profit growth outlook is impaired due to an intensifying competitive environment, changes in compliance practices and rising costs. Pricing actions are helping curtail market share losses in certain key corridors, but they could destabilize WU's position as the premium priced provider. Impaired growth outlook is reflected in valuation, which remains low. Low Street expectations create likelihood for upside surprise.”

The Western Union Company closed on Thursday at $15.85.
