UBS upgraded MasterCard (NYSE: MA) from Sell to Neutral and raised its price target from $425 to $519.

The firm comments, "We are upgrading MA to Neutral. Shares have modestly underperformed YTD (+4.4% vs. the S&P 500 +9.0%) and we believe intact long-term guidance, operating leverage, a modest dividend, and capital allocation options (i.e., buybacks) will provide a floor—despite slower global spending growth trends."
