Bullish play in Visa options

Bullish play in Visa options. A Jun 80 - 82.5 call spread is bought for $1.02, 9K, untied. The flow likely rolls a block of long calls down 2.5 strikes, as the 80s are opening and the 82.5s, which saw notable opening activity in late-November early-December, appear to be closing. The adjustment shows confidence in Visa for the first six months of 2017 after a seesaw 2016 has shares basically unchanged YTD.

Cowen 'strongly recommends' Visa into 2017
Cowen analyst George Mihalos noted that 2016 was a disappointing year for the card network operators Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA) but he "strongly" recommends investors build positions in Visa with the stock at its most favorable valuation in over a year. The analyst, who predicts improving network fundamentals in 2017 and expects Visa to see organic revenue growth acceleration, keeps Outperform ratings on both Visa and MasterCard.

Buy
Visa upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Kenneth Bruce upgraded Visa to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $92 from $85 to reflect a healthier macro environment and potentially lower taxes and easing regulation that could drive earnings upside. Bruce said Visa's valuation has been pressured over the past few months due to a rotation into cyclical stocks and believes shares are well positioned to for a positive turn in sentiment in 2017.

Buying opportunity seen in Visa, MasterCard at Stifel
Stifel analyst Christopher Brendler believes that a buying opportunity has been created in Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA), as both stocks have "increasingly attractive relative valuations" and a "positive near-term fundamental outlook," according to Brendler. The analyst notes that Visa's stock is down 4% and MasterCard's is down 1.3% since the election. The analyst says that there is almost no possibility of the Trump Administration increasing the regulation of the credit card networks, and he expects both companies to benefit from domestic fiscal stimulus and a cash repatriation holiday. He keeps Buy ratings on both names but prefers Visa "on relative valuation and pricing upside from Visa Europe."
