What should you make of it?

American Express

Citi reiterated its 'Buy' rating on American Express calling the stock a “top pick” and they raised their price target for AXP from $48 to $51.

Citi analyst Donald Fandetti said, "Better-than-expected global spending in Q1 and 2010 will drive AXP shares higher, in our view.”

”We also expect the large banks to strike a more positive tone around their card business as they report Q1 earnings, potentially boosting the shares.”

What should you make of it?

I also like AXP, says Karen Finerman. It’s a good solid company and the valuation isn’t crazy.

MGM, Las Vegas Sands

JPMorgan raised its target for Las Vegas Sands to $29 from $23 citing better occupancy rates.

Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs raised MGM's price target to $17.50 from $14.50 and reaffirmed a "Buy" rating.

What should you make of it?

I think JPMorgan has a very aggressive price target on LVS, says Guy Adami on the Halftime Report. I find it hard to get long in LVS at these levels.
