Visa to acquire CardinalCommerce; financial terms not disclosed

Visa announced an agreement to acquire CardinalCommerce. The acquisition will enable more secure, seamless payments, whether made through a browser, mobile app, or connected device, and will help Visa's clients and merchant partners accelerate digital commerce, the company said. Cardinal will continue to operate and serve all of its clients as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Visa, and its authentication platform will continue to support a broad range of payment brands and partners across the industry. Co-founders Tim Sherwin and Chandra Balasubramanian will remain as leaders of the Cardinal team, based in Mentor, Ohio. Financial terms of the transaction are not disclosed. The transaction, which is subject to the customary closing conditions, is expected to close in Visa's second fiscal quarter 2017.

Jefferies sees attractive entry points for Payments stocks
Payments stocks Visa (V), MasterCard (MA), PayPal (PYPL), Global Payments (GPN), Vantiv (VNTV) have been big underperformers since Election Day as investors rotate into core Financials, Jefferies analyst Jason Kupferberg tells investors in a research note. The corrections of up to 10% are not warranted fundamentally, the analyst contends. Kupferberg sees attractive entry points at current levels and highlights PayPal and Visa as his top picks.

Visa pullback on new U.S. debit routing policies an overreaction, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Jason Kupferberg said he views the pullback in Visa shares following the company's new U.S. debit routing policies as an overreaction and recommends buying amid today's weakness. Visa could lose some U.S. PIN debit market share, but even in a worst-case scenario the analyst doesn't see any more than a "very low single-digit" EPS impact, he tells investors.
