What are Wall Street analysts saying about Visa stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Visa stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Visa have outperformed the industry in a year’s time. The company is gaining from consistent growth in payments volume, cross-border volume and processed transactions. Numerous strategic acquisitions and alliances plus technology upgrades and effective marketing have paved the way for long-term growth and a consistent increase in revenues. The acquisition of Visa Europe is a long term growth strategy for the company. Its international business has been expanding and adds diversification benefits. Visa is well-poised to gain from the growing electronic payment processing and a solid brand name. Its strong capital position facilitates business investments. Nevertheless, high client incentives and operating expenses weigh on its operating margins. Adverse foreign exchange volatility imparts instability to the company’s earnings." (6/15/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We maintain our Overweight rating on Visa and raise our 12-month PT to $181 from $160. We like Visa’s opportunity to capitalize on the global conversion of cash into credit, international opportunities, and digital payment tailwinds. Visa has a basket of catalysts expanding its TAM including Visa Direct, contactless payments, & B2B to name a few. Results for 2QFY19 earnings were above expectations, and Visa maintained FY19 (ending September 2019) guidance. The company continues to see FX headwinds but sees long term strength. We remain attracted to Visa’s dominant position in the global card network market and its strong, recognizable international brand." (4/28/2019)
