I am hoping that AAPL purchases this company outright to help fight off the post ticker known as V.

October 2015 will be a big month for the way credit card companies do business in the United States. This is when credit card companies have decided to switch to the new EMV payment method stateside. What the “EMV” payment method means, basically, is that credit cards will no longer use the swipe of a magnetic strip to transfer funds to a merchant in face-to-face transactions. Rather, cards will switch to a microchip and the card will be inserted rather than swiped. Customers will also have the added benefit of being able to choose to enter a PIN rather than merely signing their name.

The benefit of this payment method is that it is much more secure than the old sign-and-swipe payment method making credit card fraud much less prevalent. European markets have been using EMV payment methods for a while, because fraud was much more prevalent in foreign markets. However crime will almost always follow the path of least resistance and this case was no different. Credit card fraud is now a huge issue in the states.

What this means for credit card companies like Visa, Mastercard, and American Express is that there will be a liability shift when this switch to EMV technology is made. Right now, if someone fraudulently uses a credit card at a department store, these credit card companies usually end up eating the loss. After October 2015, merchants who are EMV compliant will have to eat the loss of credit card fraud. This will make the technology prevalent and lead to a lot less eating of losses.

Visa and MasterCard are the dominate credit card brands and will most likely continue to be profitable as long as humans continue to buy goods on credit.

Hooking up with apple and other payment technologies will creat more demand for mastercard and will allow them to charge a premium.
