Likes it very much. Stable. It's the biggest credit card company in the world. They have increasing international presence, growing after buying Visa Europe. 60% of its business is now in debit. New technology like the Square app reflects a changing payments landscape, but Visa is doing deals with smaller groups and keeping up.

In their fund 50% is made of 5 ETFs and 50% in 18 single stocks. VISA is one of them. Fairly well priced at a PEG ratio of 1.71. They have a target of $165. He would enter with a half position and the other half if there is a pullback.

Look back 25 years or more. It went from $150 to $120 approximately late last year. In '08 it went from $25 to $12 in the recession. He thinks it should be in most portfolios. They would go down as much as the broad markets but it will likely outperform in the long run.

The payment industry in the US has been a strong performer for some time. The issue is the multiple, being way too high. You have to be strategic about buying it when it is low. The credit card companies are well positioned to grow. He is worried about APPL-Q and their card disrupting the market. He would prefer AMEX, which he does not own at this point.

It's had a nice run but wouldn't chase it at current levels, but it has a definite positive growth outlook. We'll see more electronic payments around the world and Visa has a stake in this. A fine chart. That brought in Visa Europe and are integrating it; it made Visa more global. Good long-term growth.

It's done really well over time. The chart rises in a straight line. It reflects an economy going up. When we get a recession, there will be fewer transactions, though. January 2019 was a good entry point and since then it has broken past last fall's high. Strong technicals. It's too late to buy this.

Heavy credit card use in Scandinavia Denmark is 90% non-cash, but only 20% of the world has credit cards. Asia doesn't, so there's huge growth potential for Visa as well as Mastercard. As for Apple payments, he's not sure who will process their payments. The future is to use your smartphone and credit card to pay for things, not cash, and less and less.

Visa bought Visa Europe a year ago and are Integrating it which will make Visa more international than Mastercard. These companies aren't trying to gain market share from each other; they're both growing from cash/cheque to online payments.

A great long-term hold and story, though it's overvalued now. It's far more global than MasterCard. Visa takes no risk. A great business that generates a lot of free cash. Blockchain can actually help Visa cut down their cost structure. Definitely buy on a pullback.

Visa vs. Mastercard He loves this sector. Both are fine companies. They don't take credit risk (the associated banks do). Instead, they do payment transactions, and here Visa (1.9 trillion) dwarfs its competitors combined. Visa also has a bigger debit card business and are more international oriented than Mastercard; Visa has now absorbed Visa Europe, which used to be a different company. Europeans use cash more than credit, so there's great opportunity here.

Companies with high valuations will compress if the market goes down. Revenue growth is 12%, so hitting on all cylinders. Payments, volume growth are at 11% last quarter. Growing at a fast pace. That's wonderful, but you get so big it's harder to grow at such a fast pace. Has no problem with the stock, you can buy a half position.

He is surprised Visa is trading at a discount to Mastercard -- not typically the case. Long term growth of e-trade is expanding worldwide and there is a long runway for both. He would buy it here.

Visa vs. Shopify as a growth stock in a TFSA? Definitely Visa--a global franchise with great recurring revenue. Nothing against Shopify, but it's a very expensive stock. Visa is the safer, long-term bet. Everyday, we use less cash.

Visa vs. Mastercard He owns Mastercard which has done better than Visa. But both companies are great. Pick one. But you're paying for the growth rate (they are expensive). Trading at 31x earnings. Be careful of sudden drops in stock price.

Visa vs. Mastercard He's owned both. Look at how much each card is international and domestic? Visa is a little more international, a market that's a bigger piece of the pie. The average European uses cash much more often than plastic, so this is a big opportunity for Visa. Also, Visa is 60% debit, which he thinks will become more normal than credit cards, so this is another growth area. This sector is doing well. Visa is bigger than all its peers combined. Did 1.9 trillion transactions last year--huge. So, he prefers Visa, but the overall sentiment is positive for Mastercard too.

The payments space is huge, because nobody's writing cheques and people are using smartphones. Has 12% revenue growth. Number of cards increase 80 million to 3.3 billion. Total Visa volume surpassed a record $11 trillion. Likes the company, but hates the price. Multiple is too high. A free cash-flow company that continues to grow. He'd buy this at a lower price. 31.25 P/E is unjustifiable.

She prefers Visa to MasterCard, because they brought in Visa Europe last year which will raise their international presence and introduce new products and grow the company.

They have taken ownership of Visa in Europe, where cash is still used more than in the U.S. This provides a big opportunity for expansion. Debit is now 60% of their business, and international is 60% of their business, these support rapid growth. Visa is not cheap but it is very stable and worth owning.

Blip earlier this year ties back to the markets. This trend is going higher. VISA has made a new high, compared to the market, which has not.

Mastercard (MA-N ) vs. VISA (V-N). Owns Mastercard instead of VISA. But the charts look similar. All you do is jump in. With a long base, if you believe in the company, you’re not sure when it’s going to pop, but when it does, off it goes. VISA has made a new high, compared to the market, which has not.

Visa (V-N) or Mastercard (MA-N)? Likes the electronic payment space. Cash and cheques are still the predominant form of payment in many countries, so there’s lots of runway, even in developed markets. Bought Visa a couple of years ago and is happy to keep holding it. Benefits of buying Visa Europe will come through this year in terms of integration. There are opportunities for both companies in terms of market share -- no reason to switch from one to the other.

Visa is an incredibly stable cash machine.  They take on no credit risk.  They are a transaction company.  1.9 Trillion transactions last year and they are still growing in the high teens in earnings.  More and more we are carrying plastic.  Visa in Europe is still growing a lot.

Should I buy American Express (AXP-N) or VISA (V-N)? It is like asking if I should buy an ice-cream for my daughter or my son. Ownes both. Basically, toll booth for global spending. There is still more cash out there than plastic out there believe it or not. American Express (AXP-N) seems a little cheaper from a valuation stand point. Amex is a little more value oriented, VISA is a little more growth oriented. Keep both.

She's done well with this over many years. It's currently near its highs. It's a core holding as society transitions into digital transactions (i.e. online shopping). You can take a bit of profit here, but she expects a lot of growth in digital going forward, that we're still in the early days of digital transactions. Visa bought Visa Europe late last year, so expect earnings contributions from this. This stock will grind higher.

Amazing chart. It continues to rise, because it grows revenues at double-digits as well as profit margins at nearly 20% a year. There's such demand for its services as more developing economies move away from cash to online shopping.
the multiple is not cheap, but there isn't serious competition against Visa.

Visa bought out Visa Europe a year ago and are integrating now. This should improve Visa's margins and profits for the next few years.

A wonderful long-term growth story. Transactions and societal wealth around the world continue to grow. But storm clouds may be increased digitization, including blockchain technology, and government regulation, such as the EU threatening interchange fees. It's possible it could come under investigation for the amount of data it collects.

Visa (V-N) vs Mastercard (MA-N). Which would you buy? Visa is the largest, best player. Mastercard is more international. Visa just bought the European side which adds value. Both track well and perform similarly, but both trade higher than the banks, which could be risky in a volatile market. Both good long-term companies, because there is a move away from cash to electronic payments. Both trade at high multiples. Mastercard has developed technology more aggressively, but has been playing catch up on the international side.

Having taken most of my money out, how do I know when to sell my last bit, or do I keep hanging on forever as I’m just playing with the house money? This is really the core of investment management. It's a question every investor and investment manager has to understand, come to terms with, and create a disciplined approach to the answer. You have to have a rule-based investment philosophy to allow long-term success. It's not "house money", it's your money. You should think of your profits, not in terms of the relationship with a cost of your investment, but just in absolute terms. It's your money. It doesn't have any less value because you've earned it in the market. Also you shouldn't just be holding on because it is "winning". You have to always be looking at the company in terms of how is it trading today relative to its past, and what might happen in the future. You have to judge a company every day, asking yourself if it is something you would buy today.

A great business. Not a cheap stock. There are probably some concerns in the near term with the hype over crypto currencies and different payment mechanisms replacing Visa. However, the negative sentiments around this are misguided. It’s a great franchise and people are going to continue using credit cards for a long time to come. It’s expensive, but is a type of stock that if there were a pullback in the stock or the market, it's one you would want to step in and buy.

This company is ahead of itself by a fair degree, in terms of its price versus its intrinsic value. As a consequence, this is a speculation from a FMV point of view, and about 40% above FMV. Looking back at the history, the stock and the FMV have had a historic tendency to come together. Earnings are going up at a nice rate, but the stock is going up at a faster rate.

He does not own this or MA-N.  They have been a play on consumer spending around the world and have done well.  These are not value stocks and he is a value investor.  It is a growth investment.

This has effectively done nothing but move up. It is driven off the back of a structural transition from cash to online payments. That transition is continuing to grow. Last year they bought Visa Europe and are in the process of integrating it. That was a not-for-profit company, so they are taking a lot of the fat and commercializing it and looking for synergies. This should continue moving higher.

The dividend is under 1% so people don’t own it for that.  It has been a phenomenal position.  They beat expectations by 5 or 6% past quarter.  They will continue unless there is a major philosophy change.  They will continue with their buybacks.

You need to own this. He doesn’t own it because his company’s mandate has a requirement that a business pays a dividend of at least 1%. It’s a name which is never going to feel good to own, because when it goes up you make great money, but end up with the million-dollar question of is it going higher or do you cash out.

How does the recent news of Bitcoin affect this company? The idea of Bitcoin and blockchain technology is a very legitimate and growing misunderstood space. It is going to be a force to be reckoned with. This company is not going to just sit by and let it happen without being involved. Visa continues to be a core holding for him.

This is in the right space. Financials are pretty strong. There are better places in financials, but this one has a nice long-term trend. In the last little while, the trend has gotten a little steeper, and when that happens you are a little more susceptible to a pullback. He would watch for it to come back to just below the $106 level.

V-N vs. MA-N.  They keep going up.  V-N is slightly better valuation than M-N and he prefers to by M-N when it is two or three multiple points between the two.  Generally speaking they are both great and have a huge runway ahead of them.  A lot of countries are still just scratching the surface.  He just owns V-N right now.
