Goldman Sachs downgraded NetSpend (NASDAQ: NTSP) from Neutral to Sell with a price target of $10.00 (from $11.00), saying they expect price compression and increased competition to offset card and volume growth.

"We believe this competition will pressure pricing in 2013, a risk that in our view is not fully reflected in Street expectations," the analyst said.

Goldman lowered 2012-2014 EPS forecast to $0.50/$0.56/$0.64 from $0.51/$0.61/$0.70.
