Morgan Stanley - Equal-weight, $19 Price Target
"While Increase in fiscal 2014 EBITDA guidance should please the bulls, bears are likely to take issue with weaker than expected first half progress on revenues, which could set Green Dot up for a miss on unchanged revenue expectations."
Deutsche Bank - Hold, $21 Price Target
"Green Dot revenues at Wal-Mart declined double-digits to 55 percent of total revenues from 65 percent of revenues in the second quarter of 2013 which the company attributed to increase usage of fee waiver plan. Although its unclear if increased competition from AXP BlueBird and Serve card negatively impacted revenues."
Keefe, Bruyette & Woods - Market Perform, $21 Price Target
"Given lack of clarity around the Walmart renewal process looming in the near future as well as the fact that the ramp in revenues in the back half of the year is more meaningful than our previous expectations, we continue to wait for more visibility into key issues pertaining to the long-term growth of the company before becoming more constructive on the shares."
