- Following the merger with Cash America, JMP analyst David Scharf thinks the combined company is "a compelling combination of cash-flow rich domestic operations that should fund aggressive return of capital and a long runway of ongoing ... expansion in Latin America."
- Other positive catalysts include a recovery in pawn demand in Mexico, synergies, and the focus on returning capital.
- The $57 price target is 20% above yesterday's close for FCFS.

- The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will release a set of sweeping proposals today aimed at reshaping the market for payday loans and other expensive credit that the agency and consumer advocates call "debt traps."
- The rules would limit the number of payday loans (which can carry interest rates as high as 390%) a consumer can take out, change how lenders collect payments and require them to do a more thorough review of borrowers' finances.

- Google has previously prohibited ads for illegal activities like selling guns, explosives, and drugs, but to this point it has never banned a broad category of financial products.
- Beginning July 13, consumers will still be able to find payday lenders on a Google search, but ads appearing on the top and right-hand side of results will not show marketing from the industry.
- "We’ll continue to review the effectiveness of this policy, but our hope is that fewer people will be exposed to misleading or harmful products," says Google global product policy director David Graff.
- Payday lenders already have a big regulatory target on their back, but this action from Google (combined with Facebook which already bans the ads) could have more impact.
- Of interest to: EZCORP (NASDAQ:EZPW), Cash America (NYSE:CSH), First Cash Financial (NASDAQ:FCFS), QC Holdings (NASDAQ:QCCO).
