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, "Visa’s fiscal third quarter bottom line beat estimates and improved year over year on growth in payments volume, cross-border volume and processed transactions. 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." (8/1/2018) 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) Are investors shorting Visa?
