Baird analyst Jeffrey Meuler initiates coverage on S&P Global (NYSE: SPGI) with a Outperform rating and a price target of $437.00.

The analyst comments "SPGI is a diversified portfolio of extremely high-quality businesses. SPGI-INFO has broad growth drivers we believe will create financial results that look like a growing annuity. SPGI has a best-in-class margin expansion track record, and pro-forma SPGI-INFO appears to have ample margin expansion potential. Repurchases should also be significant given FCF and a substantially underleveraged balance sheet at merger close. Net, should have several years of amplified EPS growth following merger close."
