8. VeriFone Systems (PAY)

Company Profile: VeriFone is a provider of secure electronic-payment technologies.

Share Price: $40.66 (Dec. 14)

Potential Upside: 30% based on a price target of $53

Investment Thesis: Analyst Wayne Johnson says VeriFone is Raymond James' top investment idea in the payments sector, "given the company's strong market position, exposure to secular tailwinds, and significant company-driven revenue and profitability expansion opportunities."

Johnson adds that VeriFone should benefit from favorable market dynamics such as improved competitive landscape, new payment products, adoption of electronic payments in traditionally cash-based industries like taxis, and the demand for value-added services such as multimedia, advertising, and mobile payments capabilities.

7. TW Telecom (TWTC)

Company Profile: TW Telecom is the third-largest business Ethernet provider in the U.S.

Share Price: $18.94 (Dec. 14)

Potential Upside: 32% based on a price target of $25

Investment Thesis: Analyst Frank Louthan says the proliferation of data makes TW Telecom the name to own since it's best positioned in the highly competitive telecom industry.

"The company has valuable assets that we believe are positioned to benefit from the same data demand trends we see in that sub-sector, which can ultimately produce higher top-line growth than its peers," Louthan writes.
