Competitive position slowly eroding as technology disrupts this business. Project Greenback 2.0 will continue to minimize costs thereby limiting WU's profitability; margins will suffer. Look to the capital-light players in the space that have built their businesses based on technology from the ground up.

Broad moat - 90+ % revenue from overseas where there is little organized competition. Low current price (PE 10). Decent yield 2.8%

I picked this stock because it is rated 10 by Stockscouter, it has a dividend and a beta computed by Yahoo Finance of more than 1.

I've held this company for 5 years with the hopes its business would expand profitably and the dividend would act as a nice cherry on the cake. Unfortunately, with increased competition, increased regulation costs, and decreased revenues, I've decided to close my position. I think WU may fluctuate up and down, possibly even going up over the next few years, but I believe there are better growth names to put money in to at this time.

Increasing expenses and declining revenue...not a good model.

WU pays a good dividend, has great market penetration, and is actively working on its cost structures. What's not to like?

Network effect, massive free cash flow. As economy recovers so should wu. Will maintain dominant position in overseas monetary transfer.

Western Union is gaining ground overseas and hasn't had to lower its fees too much yet. While I don't see it outperforming a decade from now, it still has some time left at the top.

Positive:
- Good value, good dividend
- Buying opportunity after recent price break down

Negative:
- In the longer run virtual currencies like BitCoin or Ripple might become a serious alternative

Invisible, under appreciated, forgotten... until you realize that this pal has always be there for you. Slowly but steadily beating the market.
Using the DDM (Dividend Discount Model) - it's is worth about $25 --> D / (r-g) = (0.50)/ (0.10-0.08) = $25.
Rate of return of 10%, and dividend growth rate of 8%.

Wide economic moat plus a strong FCF yield. Differentiated by the fact WU offers CASH from point-to-point.
