Goldman Sachs analyst Alexander Blostein upgraded Tradeweb Markets (NASDAQ: TW) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $85.00 (from $71.00).

THe analyst comments "TW’s Rates complex is the firm’s largest revenue contributor at 53% of total revenues in 2020, with Interest Rate Swaps (>1 year) and US Cash Treasuries being the two most material revenue contributors to the firm’s variable rates business. After several robust years, TW’s Rates revenue growth dropped to ~6% in 2020 (excluding volatile 1Q20) as volume growth in Cash products has slowed and Derivatives volumes flat-lined. Notably, this dynamic was largely a function of lower industry volumes, as TW continued to gain market share within these products. That said, with signs of a cyclical recovery in Rates volumes, we see the firm’s revenue growth re-accelerating into 10%+ range boosted by (1) improving outlook for Cash Treasuries amid record Coupon issuance, (2) a boost to Interest Rates Swap volumes from rising long-term rates, and (3) favorable revenue capture dynamics within Cash amid higher Coupon volumes within Treasuries and growth in the firm’s Specified Pool of mortgage business."
