Compass Point upgraded Cardtronics Inc (NASDAQ: CATM) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $30.00 following post-Q3 results decline.

The firm commented: "Last week the company released 3Q'12 earnings. Commentary regarding earnings guidance for next year was below consensus. In order to reach next year's consensus estimate of $1.91 growth from 2012 would need to exceed +20% with a $0.10 headwind from interchange. This level of growth would be difficult to achieve on a purely organic basis. While the interchange trends are unfavorable they appear contained. The core trends remain strong. Acquired growth is very likely to continue to benefit earnings it is just a matter of timing. Accordingly, we consider the recent share price decline an attractive opportunity."
