Fintech stocks MarketAxess Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:MKTX) and Tradeweb Market Inc (NASDAQ:TW) are in focus this morning after an analyst note out of Rosenblatt Securities. The brokerage firm sees ongoing growth trends for the businesses thanks to expanded electronic trading adoption and analytics capabilities, calling MKTX and TW "unique assets" that deserve their lofty valuations.

For MKTX specifically, Rosenblatt handed out a "neutral" rating and $255 price target, which comes in below the current price of $260.99, with the shares hitting an all-time high of $262.18 already this morning. However, the brokerage firm said the company has strong growth potential for the coming years. The stock has been a steady riser on the charts, up almost 38% in the past six months. Meanwhile, the company just released a number of new investment grade indexes

TW shares were given a "buy" endorsement by the analysts and a $45 price target. The note pointed to Tradeweb's position in the fixed income trading space, which Rosenblatt believes presents one of the best growth areas in the market. At last check, the stock was up slightly on the day at $41.90.

Looking back, the equity began trading publicly on April 4, opening for trade just above $34. It's only experienced two down days since going public, and last week the company reported an aggregate average daily trading volume of $709.1 billion for March, a figure that was well received by investors.
