Visa Inc. (NYSE: V)

It might seem a little old-fashioned compared to Bitcoin, but we’re talking about a company that has established relationships with millions of merchants spanning the entire globe.

It’s also completely digital, with services like Visa Token Service, Visa Digital Enablement Program, Visa Checkout, and Visa payWave, to meet the demands of the post-plastic marketplace.

Keith says Visa is ideally positioned to capture the lion’s share of the rapidly growing e-commerce market.

And even though CEO Alfred F. Kelly, Jr., has shied away from cryptocurrencies up to this point, Keith says that when the time comes, “there’s a good case to be made that Visa may be THE single best company positioned to form the bridge between cryptocurrencies and real money.”

That means you can grab it now and profit from its stronghold over the current retail environment. Then expect even bigger growth as it leads the way to the next generation of digital transactions.

Stocks to Buy: Visa (V)

Strong growth continues over at credit card giant Visa (NYSE:V). And the company has multiple tailwinds ahead. Don’t just take my word from it. This is the advice of top-rated Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Joseph Foresi (Track Record & Ratings).

“We like Visa’s opportunity to capitalize on the global conversion of cash into credit, international opportunities, and digital payment tailwinds” writes the analyst.

Most notably, Visa Direct, contactless payments and B2B are all potential price catalysts.

For example, Visa Direct is growing rapidly, with volumes continuing to increase by more than 100% year over year. This is fueled by increased activities by end users alongside expansion of reach and scale.

Following a 4QFY18 beat, Foresi sets out his bullish thesis as so: “Our Overweight rating is based on the company’s leading position in the card network industry and its significant opportunities for growth internationally and digitally.”

As for share price: “We value Visa at a premium to the group, due to its above-average industry growth rates, superior margins, and business profile.”

Indeed, this “strong buy” stock boasts a $168 average analyst price target. Given shares are currently trading at $135 this means 25% upside is on the cards right now.

Visa

Payment processing giant Visa rarely goes on sale. That's because its business is so rock solid and its growth is so dependable that Wall Street always prices its stock at a premium. Thankfully, the recent market sell-off is affording investors the chance to buy Visa at an 8.5% discount from its recent high.

Visa earns revenue by taking a tiny cut of all the money that flows through its network. With 3.3 billion cards in circulation, all of those swipes add up fast. The company is expected to produce more than $20 billion in total revenue in 2018.

A number of trends should continue to fuel double-digit growth for the foreseeable future. The company is still digesting its massive acquisition of Visa Europe and has lots of room left for growth in the region.

The company's push into emerging markets should also act as a nice tailwind. The general spending shift away from cash in more established markets should do its part as well.

When these factors combine with Visa's enormous scale it allows the company to produce jaw-dropping numbers. The company sports an operating margin of 65%. Its return on equity is 30%. Visa produces billions in profits each year and puts it to work on behalf of shareholders by regularly buying back stock and paying a growing dividend.

Market watchers expect Visa to post profit growth of more than 16% annualized over the next five years. I think that number is achievable.

With shares currently trading for just 22 times next year's earnings estimates, Visa is about as "no-brainer" as it gets.

Visa

This top credit card issuer is becoming a huge leader in digital pay, and Jefferies initiated coverage with a Buy rating last week.

Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) operates the world’s largest retail electronic payments network. The company provides processing services and payment product platforms, including consumer credit, debit, prepaid and commercial payments, that are offered under Visa and related brands.

According to Nilson estimates, the company is the largest global credit network (as measured by volume) and the second largest global debit network.

Visa is not a bank and does not issue cards, extend credit or set rates and fees for consumers. Visa’s innovations, however, enable financial institution customers to offer consumers more choices: pay now with debit, pay ahead of time with prepaid or pay later with credit products.

Visa remains very well liked across Wall Street as 77.9% of investment managers own its shares, and Jefferies said this after the company posted solid numbers:

Visa is another one of our top picks in the payments arena, as the largest payment network in the world and leveraged to sustainable secular growth trends which we expect will persist even in the event of a macro slowdown.

We like to company’s exposure to domestic debit and longer-term believe its Visa Direct business could open new avenues of growth to a potential $10 trillion global volume opportunity.

Shareholders receive just a 0.57% dividend. The $170 Jefferies price target compares with the $162.60 consensus target. The shares closed most recently at $140.15.

Visa (V)

When it comes to long-term bets with the Dow Jones stocks, Visa (NYSE:V) has to be at the top of the list. The firm is one of the biggest plays on the continued shift toward a cashless society.

And as one of the oldest and largest names in the space, V continues to dominate as we reach for plastic rather than cash.

The reason is Visa’s business model. The firm functions as a toll-road and collects fees from merchants, banks and other institutions every time someone uses a credit or debit card.

V simply operates a secured payment network and moves money from one account to another. So, despite having a Visa logo on your credit card, V itself isn’t issuing credit or lending you money.

This middleman position is incredibly important for the future. More transactions continue to hit Visa’s network. Over the first three months of the year, Visa processed more than 47 billion transactions. This was a 9% year-over-year jump and it’s only growing further.

With online commerce and fewer people using cash, Visa will be the dominant force going forward. The firm also continues to make inroads into additional services to keep upstarts like PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL) at bay.

The best part of all of this is that V features very fat margins and amazing cash flow growth. More transactions on its network simply mean bigger profits for the firm. And it continues to share those profits with its investors — growing its dividend by 850% over the last decade.

The future cashless society will run on Visa. That fact makes one of the best Dow stocks to buy for the long haul.

The fifth most owned stock among hedge funds is global payments giant Visa (NYSE:V), with an aggregate second quarter 13-F holding value of $275 billion.

Hedge funds love Visa for six very simple reasons.

One, Visa operates in the secular growth card payments space. In 2018, payment cards generated 368.92 billion purchase transactions for goods and services, up nearly 25% year-over-year from 2017.

Two, Visa dominates this 25% growth space, accounting for nearly 45% of those 369 billion transactions in 2018.

Three, Visa’s dominance in the secular growth card payments space has consistently powered high single-digit to double-digit volume, transaction, and revenue growth over the past few years.

Four, margins are stable and big.

Five, healthy revenue growth plus stable and big margins has powered and continues to power robust profit growth.

Six, for that robust profit growth, Visa stock trades at just 33-times forward earnings — which, while not cheap, is certainly reasonable for a company that is as dominant and has as much visibility and growth potential as Visa.

As such, it makes sense that hedge funds love Visa stock. This company has all the attributes of a long term winning investments. Those attributes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Thus, Visa stock will continue to look and act like a long term winner.
