Several analysts have recently made changes to their ratings and price targets for Fidelity National Information Services Inc. (FIS):

  • On the same day, Credit Suisse downgraded their rating from Outperform to Neutral, with a price target of $75.

  • Also on February 14th, Citigroup downgraded their rating from Buy to Neutral, with a price target of $70.
