BY NIKHIL SUBBA

The company's payments volume rose 10.2 percent to $1.35 trillion on a constant dollar basis in the quarter ended June 30.

Cross-border volumes grew 5 percent during the quarter.


Visa's net income fell to $412 million, or 17 cents per Class A share, from $1.69 billion, or 69 cents per Class A share, a year earlier.

Excluding costs related to Visa Europe, the company reported an adjusted profit of 69 cents per share.

Total operating revenue rose 3.2 percent to $3.63 billion.

Technology Stocks That Will Outperform: Visa Inc (V)

OK, most people may not think of Visa Inc (V) as a technology company, but it is. Visa represents almost four percent of the Technology SPDR, putting it in the top ten weighted companies.

Unlike the other stocks we’ve mentioned, Visa shares have not been outperforming the market lately. A tight trading range has dropped Visa’s performance below the S&P 500 over the last three months, but there is indication that this is likely to change.

Historically, Visa stock posts incredibly strong seasonal returns against the market for the last half of the year, which makes sense when you figure the holiday transactions that the company will process.

Between August and December, there is only one month that has seen an average loss (September), but the stock still outperforms the market 63% of the time during that month.

In other words, this stock is a great hold for generating alpha for August through December.

From a long-term perspective, Visa stock remains in a bull market trend as the stock’s 20-month moving average is below it, and ready to provide support if needed, at $73. Sentiment on shares is somewhat neutral and does not suggest a crowded trade, as short interest is average and the analyst buy recommendations are in line with the average for the S&P 500.

A break above the $81 mark should begin to get some momentum behind this end-of-year seasonal performer and target a rally towards $90.

THE AMERICAN CONSUMER IS ALIVE AND WELL

Today's chart is a good sign for the U.S. economy...

Regular readers know we enjoy keeping track of companies that tell us how much money American consumers are spending. And while things aren't completely healthy within the U.S. economy today, they aren't as bad as some people would have you believe.

For proof of that, we turn to Visa (V). With more than 2.5 billion Visa cards in use, the world's largest credit-card company handles more than 100 billion transactions per year.

It takes a small percentage from each transaction, making the company's profits and share price a "real time" read on how much money is changing hands.

You can see in the chart below that Visa's shares just broke out to a new 52-week high. The stock is up 12% since late June... and more than 20% from its most recent low in early February. As long as people continue to use their credit cards, things can't be all that bad..

Wal-Mart Canada to extend Visa ban to more stores from October 24

Wal-Mart Stores Inc's (WMT.N) Canadian unit will stop accepting Visa Inc (V.N) cards at 16 stores in the province of Manitoba starting Oct. 24, a company spokesman said on Wednesday, raising the stakes in a high-profile fee dispute in the country.

Wal-Mart Canada stopped accepting Visa cards in three Thunder Bay, Ontario stores in July and said the step would be mirrored across the country.

The retailer, which has over 400 stores in Canada, added that the decision will not affect Wal-Mart stores outside the country.

Visa profit, revenue beat analysts' estimates

Visa Inc (V.N), the world's largest payments network operator, reported better-than-expected quarterly profit and revenue, boosted by the inclusion of Visa Europe's results and as customers spent more using its network.

The company said total payments volume increased 47.1 percent to $1.86 trillion on a constant dollar basis in the fourth quarter ended Sept. 30, from a year earlier.

The United States accounted for about 41 percent of the total payments volume in the latest quarter, while Europe accounted for about 25 percent, Visa said.

Cross-border volumes jumped 149 percent, including Visa Europe and on a constant dollar basis.

Operating expenses rose 27 percent to $1.64 billion, mainly driven by the inclusion of Visa Europe, the company said.

Excluding special items, the company earned 78 cents per share, beating the average analyst estimate of 73 cents, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Total operating revenue rose 19.3 percent to $4.26 billion, brushing past expectations of $4.23 billion.

For the current financial year, the company expects adjusted earnings per Class A share to grow in the mid-teens and net revenue to grow in the 16-18 percent range, both on a nominal dollar basis.

Analysts were expecting earnings per share to rise 16.9 percent and revenue to grow 19.6 percent.

The uncertainty related to Brexit and economic weakness in Europe are likely to hurt both domestic and cross-border volumes in 2017, Chief Financial Officer Vasant Prabhu said in a post-earnings call.

Up to Monday's close of $83.17, the company's shares had risen about 7.2 percent this year, compared with a rise of about 6 percent for MasterCard Inc (MA.N).

Stocks to Buy: Visa Inc (V)

by Kārlis Dambrāns

The market for Visa Inc (NYSE: V) is dramatically changing. While mobile competition from PayPal Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:PYPL), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and others may certainly disrupt the traditional payment business, Visa should be just fine.

A recent BI Intelligence report concluded that merchant service providers (MSPs) are much more threatened by mobile payment competition than the credit card companies themselves.

The proof is in the pudding. Even with the emergence of platforms like Apple Pay, Visa’s profits have exploded more than 400% since 2009.

BMO Capital analyst Paulo Ribeiro expects Visa’s double-digit earnings growth to continue in the long-term. He believes V stock will continue to benefit from the slow death of cash and check payments.

Even though V stock has been a top performer in the market since the Great Recession, that incredible earnings growth means Visa’s P/E ratio is down 60% from where it was when the market bottomed in 2009. In other words, V stock is a much better value today than it was back then.

A BULLISH SIGN FOR THE U.S. ECONOMY

Today, we take a peek into America's wallet...

Regular readers know we keep a close eye on certain economic "bellwethers" to help gauge the temperature of the U.S. economy. The share-price strength of things like hotels, retailers, and swimming pools can tell us a lot about how American consumers are feeling.

Another trusty indicator is credit-card giant Visa (V). The company has issued nearly 3 billion credit cards.

It takes a tiny percentage of more than 100 billion transactions a year. And as more people around the country swipe their Visa cards, the company enjoys bigger and bigger profits.

Over time, that has translated into huge gains for Visa shares. The stock is up nearly 400% over the last six years and recently hit a fresh all-time high.

As long as Americans continue to reach for their wallets, this is a long-term uptrend that should continue. And that's good news for the U.S. economy...
