  • Global Payments Q1 Profit Mostly Flat, Beats View (GPN)

    Electronic payments processor Global Payments Inc. (GPN) said Thursday that its first quarter profit edged slightly upwards from last year, as currency effects offset higher sales. The Atlanta-based company reported fiscal first quarter net income of $57.8 million, or 71 cents per share, compared with $57.5 million, or 71 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Revenue rose 8.8% from last year, to $441.3 million. On average, Wall Street analysts expected a lower profit of 65 cents per share. Looking ahead, GPN reaffirmed its full-year 2010 forecast for profits to range from $2.43 to $2.54 per share. Global Payments shares fell 66 cents, or -1.4%, in premarket trading Friday. The Bottom Line We have avoided shares of GPN since our early June coverage began last year, when the stock was trading at $47.41. The company has a dividend yield of .17%, based on last night’s closing stock price of $46.16. The stock has technical support in the $40 price area.
