Jefferies maintains a 'Buy' on Western Union Co. (NYSE: WU) price target of $23.00.

Analyst, Jason Kupferberg, said, "Following our recent meetings with WU management, we continue to view shares as attractive for value investors (especially patient ones) because we: 1) see potential for post-'12 margin expansion, 2) think WU's increased investments in electronic channels will drive long-term growth, 3) expect active return of cash to shareholders will continue, 4) WU is a cyclical play on housing/employment recovery, 5) valuation (10x C12 P/E)."
