Verifone already has market share. They can adapt quickly, and easily, to any changes in technology. Case in point: the Chinese are outsourcing their requirements to Verifone due to the complexity of establishing payment systems.

VeriFone stock is overvalued at its current price. It is a dinosaur from the 20th century and Square, Intuit and others are already making large inroads into PAY's customer base. The time of dedicated custom hardware for payments is over, and… More

The US is way behind the rest of the world with respect to payment security, Verifone makes the consoles in the stores which need to be replaced/upgraded in order for the US to catch up.

With the coming of chips, Verifone has a huge market opportunity and current advantage. I was on a road trip with the family this last week, and across three states, every single stop we made, from shopping malls, retailers, convient stores, and grocery stores, I saw no other product other than Verifone systems.

The valuation has taken a hit due to delayed implementation of chip reading, but I have noticed that many places that had not had chip reading up (trader Joes) have started to come online in my locale.

One of my concerns was competition from soft pay systems like Apple pay, but I also noticed on my last trader joe's trip that the Verifone systems accepts many forms of non-card payments, such as apple and android pay.
