+ Watch V
on My Watchlist
Visa operates a global electronic payments network, allowing customers to use credit cards instead of cash.
owns everything retail and online, why not buy this stock?
Less bullish on V compared to MA due to 1) its larger size and greater market share and 2) bigger focus on the slower-growth U.S. market, but I still think we will see strong growth in the e-payments industry for a long time, and V is well-positioned to benefit for many of the same reasons as MA.
Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:- A payout ratio below 50%- An increasing dividend from the prior yearBecause there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen. Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.
Despite incredible growth and growth potential, P/E ratio remains low.
trend to cashless economy
Visa will continue to capitalize on the cash to credit card movement for decades. Mobile payments will further Visa's growth adoption as payments will ride the same Visa/Mastercard rails they do now. I don't see paypal or bitcoin disrupting either payment network not just now but well into the future. If there is any disruption coming we have not seen it yet and visa/mc could end up buying that or leveraging it anyway.
See MA above. I don't know, credit cards seem to be pretty cool ... Worldwide expansion -- Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, Alabama (just kidding, Roll Tide).
It's been a constant up.
Their moat is undeniable. Visa is a powerhouse, and with 85% of the world still paying with cash, the opportunity is incredible. Long term outperform. HOLD FOR 5+ YEARS and reexamine the market opportunity and Visa's role in it.
more users everyday, solid
Global migration from "cash" to electronic payments - long term trend.
Always a great stock to choose. It steadily goes up constantly. The credit card companies have great stocks because virtually everyone uses them. Visa is biggest worldwide with the most amount of transaction dollars per year.

no debt, consistent growing dividend, and strong growth. As on-line/electronic purchase continue to grow, Visa should continue to lead this sector.

Borrow for nothing, lend for a lot: plus the swipe fees! What's not to like?
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.
