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.

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.
