+ Watch V
on My Watchlist
Visa operates a global electronic payments network, allowing customers to use credit cards instead of cash.
V and MA both have prices to sales ratios of 10. That's extreme. It sounds more like a PE ratio. Stay clear. The internet and mobile phones could potentially poke holes in their moats, limiting growth.
Paperless cash society equals unlimited upside for the debit & credit businesses.

Got in on the IPO and so far am enjoying the ride.
Credit cards are essential to every day life, almost a commodity at this point
Visa operates in a de facto duopoly with its much smaller rival MasterCard, and the moat around these two is enormous. The business model is rock-solid, and the company still earns over 50% of its revenue from the U.S., which means the opportunity for international growth is still huge as credit card payments continue to gain traction around the world. Visa continues to demonstrate strong growth quarter after quarter, and the P/E has come way down, the stock is now what I would consider fairly valued. Great stock to buy and hold on to for many years to come.
Visa is the largest of the credit card companies. Globally they are in 200 countries. With the widespread use of cell phones and ability to swipe and pay, I expect their business to expand exponentially as that method grows in convenience to checks.
Largest credit transaction provider by volume, just added to the DOW, and poised to outperform as more people use credit.
growth of credit card use and new features
Similar to MasterCard, Visa is one of the strongest stocks on the market in terms of financials. The company stands to benefit from the massive global shift away from cash/check to electronic payments. A staggering 80% of the world and even 50% of The United States still uses cash as a form of payment and as that steadily changes Visa remains in a perfect position to capitalize.
strong business model in both an up and down economy.
Plastic will continue to replace cash. High barrier of entry into this industry contributes to VISA's wide moat. Lots of growth left in emerging markets. Excellent Balance Sheet. A blue chip company with plenty of growth potential....what more could you ask for?
Visa's revenues have continually grown, while expenses have not grown proportionately.
It's as good as MasterCard
Close to bullet proof. No real debt load and in prosperous times people expand their credit load and in times of downturn people need credit the most.
this stock is a MONSTER! Visa is the king of credit card companies.
Everything is gold.
For everything else theirs visa!!
