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

Yes. Website sucks. Try 10 attempts and one might go through. Customer service in Europe is non-existant or sloppy. They even asked me to provide them with error codes ( How pathetic could their programmers be??). Fees are horrenduous. Hidden Fees… More

I would redouble down on this bet if CAPS let me. Still performing well, still a good valuation, still very capital light and can convert their profits into buybacks/dividends. I'd hope they keep investing heavily in online transfers which are lower cost, and potentially shrinking debt a little or at least extending and separating maturities to reduce their liquidity risk.

Cryptocurrencies. Western Union's existence is predicated on being a provider of money movement and payment services. The impact of cryptos has not begun to take hold. Imgaine you are a native of Venezuela, nannying for a family in the United States. The majority of your earnings will be sent to your family back home. You will pay Western Union an exorbitant amount in fees. Or, you can put your money into a crypto, send it to your family within moments at a fraction of the cost. As more people accept that cryptos are the real thing, and start using it as a placeholder of value (as opposed to those piling in now for the trade), the price fluctuations will stabilize, and change the very way people use the currency, and decrease the need for money exchanges.
