The proposed merger with ICE should eventlly boost efficiencies although higher debt raises the concerns of the rating agencies.

Our six-month target price of $29.00 equates to about 16.0x our earnings estimate for 2012. With an annual dividend of $1.20, this price target implies a negative total return of 8.2% over that period. This is consistent with our long-term Underperform recommendation on the shares.
