Deluxe (DLX) Receives Strong Buy Rating and Raised Price Target by TD Cowen Analyst

TD Cowen's Lance Vitanza raised their price target on Deluxe (NYSE: DLX) by 6.1% from $33 to $35 on May 14, 2024. The analyst maintained their Strong Buy rating on the stock.

Deluxe Corporation, a company known for its production of personal and business checks, as well as marketing and web services, recently reported its Q1 2024 earnings on May 1, 2024. In response to the "strong" print, TD Cowen updated its model and raised its estimates "modestly." This adjustment was made due to management's favorable guidance and TD Cowen's belief that additional beats over the rest of the year are more likely than not.

According to Vitanza, Deluxe's positive performance has caught the attention of top-rated analysts. Currently, 100% of these analysts rate DLX as a Strong Buy or Buy, with none considering it a Hold or recommending selling the stock. This indicates a high level of confidence in Deluxe's future prospects.
