Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Visa stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Visa’s second-quarter fiscal 2018 earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 9.9% and was up 30% year over year. Results were driven by strong growth in payments volume, cross-border volume and processed transactions as a strong economy and a positive consumer sentiment led to higher spending. Visa’s shares have outperformed the industry in a year's time. Numerous strategic acquisitions and alliances, technology upgrades and effective marketing have paved the way for its long-term growth and consistent revenue improvement. Visa is well poised to gain from the growing electronic payment processing and strong international business. A solid balance sheet ensures effective capital deployment. The stock has seen the Zacks Consensus Estimate for current-year earnings being revised 1.6% upward over the last seven days. Nevertheless, high client incentives might put pressure on revenues." (5/4/2018) 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "1QFY18 preview: We expect high single-digit revenue growth for the period. Our 4QFY17 revenue estimate is $4.84 bn (+8.5% y/y) vs. the FactSet consensus of $4.82 bn. Our EPS estimate is $1.00, just above the consensus of $0.99. Visa has had revenue growth of 14-26% for the past four quarters due to the addition of Visa Europe. Because the Visa Europe acquisition has anniversaried, we expect revenue to normalize to a high-single/low-double-digit growth trajectory." (1/29/2018) Who are some of Visa's key competitors?
