2017-04-27 BUY on WEAKNESS Mohsin Bashir

He has no reservations as to having it in a core holding, but he missed it.  You want a toll collector for financial transactions.  They have a pretty substantial network.  It is a financial technology company with an exceptional portfolio.

2017-04-27 COMMENT Mike S. Newton, CIM FCSI

This is a long-term keeper. $4.5 billion in profit last quarter. Has owned this for 10 years, and hopes to own it for another 10. Global payments is where everybody wants to be. Had a few bumps along the way with Visa Europe, but are getting that reorganized.

2017-04-10 WAIT Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

Chart shows a nice long upward trend. Any time it goes back to the trend line at around $70-$79, would probably be a pretty good buy. Using his volatility charts, it shows the stock is due for a pause. Also, the MACD is sort of turning down, but that has already been reflected in the stock price. Longer-term, he has a target of $110.

2017-04-06 TOP PICK Stan Wong

This dominates the global market for electronic payments. They account for 50% of all credit card transactions globally. As consumer spending globally continues to grow, this company will take share from cash and cheques. Dividend yield of 0.74%. (Analysts price target is $98.50.)

2017-03-31 BUY Andy Nasr

He likes it a lot.  A good technology company.  They have a big transaction processing operation.  They benefit from size and frequency of transaction.  You hope developing countries move away from cash and to debit cards.  There is a lot of runway here as they increase penetration.  They and MA-T trade at a premium.

2017-03-27 BUY David Fingold

He likes the credit card processor space, although MA-N is his preference.  The stocks have moved in a closely correlated move over time.  V-N is more involved in the debit space where there is more pressure on fees.

2017-03-23 DON'T BUY Norman Levine

He has mixed feelings for both V-N and MA-N.  As economies start to do better in the world, use of credit cards will start to pick up.  But there is continued pressure on merchant fees and it may get bigger.

2017-03-09 PAST TOP PICK Stan Wong

(A Top Pick Jan 14/16. Up 21.88%.) Trading at 26X earnings with a 15%-17% growth rate. Decent valuation. This has the benefit of the secular global shift to electronic payments from cash, etc. The acquisition of Visa Europe and the partnership with Costco is going to help as well.

2017-03-07 COMMENT John Stephenson

Financials in general look very attractive. He really likes the payment processors. This company has a very strong growth, and is one of the best brands. It has had a few headwinds of late, but you are going to start to see some contributions from the integration of Visa Europe shortly. This is a dominant franchise.

2017-03-02 BUY on WEAKNESS Jon Vialoux

Consumer discretionary tends to do well between October and May. But you tend to have a really good period of retail spending now into the spring. Everyone is buying big ticket items whether it is cars or home appliances, or even doing renovations on homes. This should be a beneficiary. RSI just moved below $70 today. It has been hovering above $70 for the past couple of weeks. $70 is a significantly overbought level. We are seeing these soft sell signals according to momentum indicators, and there should be a pullback along with the broad market and there should be a period of consolidation. The graph shows a bit of a rising trend channel, which it broke out of. The previous level of resistance of about $84 should now act as support, where you should try to pick it up.

2017-03-01 COMMENT John Burke

He likes free cash flow yields in his holdings. The market is about 4.5%, and if he can get 6%, he is not interested in the stock. This one doesn’t hit the bar for him, and thinks there are more profitable companies out there. Not a bad stock, but just not one for him.

2017-02-13 HOLD John Zechner

This has been a great growth stock. Valuation is high, it has a 20+ earnings multiple which, for a financial, you question a little. He worries that when you get into an E payment system on a global basis, does this company get left behind. However, this seems to be the best operator in the group. They have taken tremendous market share away from AMEX over the past couple of years, and even MasterCard. They are growing better within the industry, which probably supports the multiple and the growth going forward. Thinks they will be smart enough not to be taken back by the PayPal’s and the E-payment systems. You are probably safe to continue to Hold.

2017-02-09 HOLD John Petrides

He does not know if they will split the stock. If you don’t own Amazon and believe in on-line commerce, then on-line purchases will be charged to a credit card unless you use PayPal.  85% of the world’s off-line transactions are still done through cash.  V-N is a very good company and he would love to buy it at a cheaper price but hold on to it if you own it.

2017-01-27 TOP PICK Darren Sissons

A relatively expensive stock, but since the IPO, this has been a fabulous story. The dividend has grown something like 28% in the last 4 years. The acquisition of Visa Europe is a game changer. Visa Europe was run like Visa prior to its IPO, as a not for profit. You are going to get much larger transaction volumes. They are also going to increase efficiencies and will lead to a much better company. Dividend yield of 0.79%. (Analysts’ price target is $94.93.)

2017-01-26 BUY Gordon Reid

V-N vs. MA-N.  He thinks V-N is the best company and owns it.  It has a better foot hold in the debit card space.  They process $1.9 trillion in transactions each year.  Debit is becoming the favoured plastic now.  Expect 20% growth rate in earnings.  Card penetration in Europe is only about 25% vs. 35% in North America.
