What are Wall Street analysts saying about Visa stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Visa stock: 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We maintain our Overweight rating on Visa and our 12- month PT of $160. We like Visa’s opportunity to capitalize on the global conversion of cash into credit, international opportunities, and digital payment tailwinds. Visa Direct, contactless payments, and B2B appear to be catalysts. Results for 1QFY19 were above expectations, and Visa maintained FY19 (ending September 2019) guidance. The company experienced some volatility due to macro (air pockets), particularly in cross-boarder payments, which are built into our 2Q estimates. We remain attracted to Visa’s dominant position in the global card network market and to its strong, recognizable international brand." (1/31/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Visa shares have outperformd the industry in a year's time. The company is witnessing growth in payments volume, cross-border volume and processed transactions owing to a strong economy and a positive consumer sentiment driving higher spending. Numerous strategic acquisitions and alliances, technology upgrades and effective marketing have paved the way for long-term growth and consistent revenue rise. Visa is well poised to gain from the growing electronic payment processing and a strong international business. Given solid operational performance, management expects fiscal 2018 operating EPS to grow in low-30s on low double digits revenue growth. A solid balance sheet ensures effective capital deployment. Shares of Visa have outperformed the industry in a year's time. Nevertheless, high client incentives might put pressure on revenues." (9/25/2018) Has Visa been receiving favorable news coverage?
