Visa sees 2H ramp in client incentive spend, sees 'sustained' payment volume

"The dollar and the euro were relatively stable last quarter, and this headwind has not become stiffer. A couple of trends are worse than we had expected last quarter and bear watching. Currency volatility is tracking below the long-term mean and well below last year's levels. Volumes on Chinese dual-brand cards are declining as cards expire and are not reissued. For the second half, we are assuming payment volume and cross-border growth momentum will be sustained. Client incentive spend is expected to ramp up with the renewals we just completed and deals that are shifting into the second half. Expenses will also step up above second quarter levels as we spend more on marketing and technology initiatives and as well as Europe integration," Visa said.

Extended partnership with Visa will increase PayPal relevance, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Brad Berning notes that PayPal (PYPL) and Visa (V) have extended their relationship to the Asia Pacific Region, duplicating the U.S. partnership announcement last year as they work to expand globally. While spending in-store POS is likely to be largely a pass through revenue event for PayPal, it will increase its relevance, which the analyst expects to increase overall adoption and engagement over time. Berning reiterates a Buy rating and $52 price target on PayPal's shares.

Barclays still 'strongly' recommends shares of Visa
Barclays analyst Darrin Peller believes the outperformance of Visa shares is likely sustainable as currency, gas price and Russia headwinds ease. The analyst continues to "strongly recommend" the stock throughout the first half of 2017. Peller believes Visa could post upside in Q2 and keeps an Overweight rating on the name with a $103 price target.

Oppenheimer bullish on Visa, MasterCard ahead of results
Oppenheimer analyst Glenn Greene reiterates Outperform ratings for MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V) and $120 and $95 price targets, respectively, heading into results. The analyst is encouraged by "solid" January intra-quarter volume growth, improving gas price trends, strong retail sales growth, and broadly positive card issuer trends. Further, Greene continues to believe that MasterCard and Visa are attractive at current levels, given their defensible market positions and strong long-term prospects. Nonetheless, he prefers Visa relative to MasterCard at present given the continuing U.S. volume boost from the Costco (COST)/USAA wins and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) Sapphire Reserve momentum, apparent conservative guidance, and Visa Europe accretion benefits.
