Jefferies raised its price target on Buy-rated First Cash Financial (NASDAQ: FCFS) from $48 to $56.

The firm comments, "Pawn industry asset and revenue growth continues to be driven primarily in Mexico with the US returning to a more normalized growth environment. Growth in online payday lending continues to outpace brick and mortar based lending, with an evolving regulatory environment that should be a long term positive for the more established players in the market. We continue to prefer FCFS and increase our PT to $56 from $48."

The firm raised FY12 EPS from $2.70 to $2.72.
