Evercore ISI analyst Sheriq Sumar assumes coverage on WEX Inc. (NYSE: WEX) with a Outperform rating and a price target of $230.00.

The analyst comments "WEX benefits from a secular shift towards automation of B2B payments with a large addressable market of $24 billion in revenues across fuel cards, travel and corporate payments and healthcare. We expect WEX to deliver revenue growth at the higher end of its 10-15% guidance range over 5 years as WEX executes on several organic and inorganic growth initiatives. Moreover, WEX’s revenue benefits from higher fuel prices and a rebound in global travel, with 20% of revenue sensitive to fuel price changes and 6% revenue exposure to travel. And while WEX has outperformed the broader equity markets and payments sector YTD, we see potential for further upside given a deeply discounted valuation – both on an absolute and relative basis. Meanwhile, recent market volatility created a big disconnect between higher fuel cost and WEX’s stock price, which historically moved in tandem, implying a potential “catch up” in the near term if fuel prices stay elevated."
