UBS maintains a 'Neutral' on VeriFone (NYSE: PAY) price target lowered from $51 to $48.

Analyst, John T. Williams, said, "Stay Neutral; re-rating continues as no guidance raise = disappointment."

"Heading into the print, we believed the risk-reward for PAY shares had improved considerably over the last few weeks, and we are modestly more constructive as the shares continue to rerate. While some clouds have begun to clear (organic growth was healthy, Hypercom recovered well), investors were hoping for a beat/raise (our sense is that +$25 mn revs/$0.04-0.05 EPS would have sufficed), that did not materialize—which could imply some second-derivatives are slowing."

"Our FY12-13-14 EPS estimates are now $2.67 (+$0.02), $3.29 (+$0.05), and $3.77 (+$0.05), on 2Q results."
