GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Visa Inc is a payments technology company working to enable consumers, businesses, banks and governments to use fast, secure and reliable digital currency. The Company operates processing networks - VisaNet.

Visa manages payment brands and an "open loop" global payment network, which allows it to provide authorization, clearing, and settlement of electronic payment transactions. The firm generates revenue by charging fees to its customers (issuers and acquirers) based on the dollar volume of card activity and the number of transactions processed through the network.

Guru Investment Theses on Visa Inc

Wally Weitz Comments on Visa - May 18, 2017

Visa (NYSE:V) is the world’s largest electronic payment network. The company recently closed on its acquisition of Visa Europe, allowing it to provide a fully integrated network to clients, which should result in increased market share and lower costs. We believe Visa will compound nicely as worldwide payment volumes grow, developing countries switch from cash to cards, and the company uses its technology and network to participate in all forms of electronic payments.

Jeff Auxier Comments on Visa - May 09, 2017

Visa (NYSE:V) dominates the global market for electronic payments handling over half of all credit card transactions globally. The trend toward digital payments and away from cash is strong and fundamentals for global commerce and spending have been improving. Their network processes over $8 trillion in transactions annually.

David Rolfe Comments on Visa - Apr 14, 2017

Visa (NYSE:V) was a top performer during the Quarter, bouncing back after detracting during the 4th Quarter. Not much changed over that timeframe; however, constant-dollar payment volume growth and cross border volume growth continued accelerating across several key markets as Visa has gained share, which helped the Company post adjusted earnings per share growth of +23% during the December Quarter. We think the recent acquisition of Visa Europe should provide the Company with continued opportunities for growth, not only from a cost savings standpoint but also from a revenue perspective. Several European markets have card payment share that remains significantly under-penetrated relative to cash, when compared to the U.S., so the shift towards e-commerce should continue to aid Visa’s value proposition. The Company maintains a conservative balance sheet, with a substantial amount of offshore cash, and the stock’s valuation continues to be attractive, especially relative to the Company’s high-teen growth profile for the next several years.

David Rolfe Comments on Visa - Jan 16, 2017

Visa (NYSE:V)'s valuation came under pressure following the election early November as the market saw a rotation out of higher-multiple tech and financial securities and into more cyclical names. We used this opportunity to increase weightings across accounts as valuation levels became more attractive.

Visa has consistently grown its revenue, EBITDA, and earnings double digits as it has played a key role in facilitating commerce’s multi-decade move away from paper-based transactions. The Company effectively represents the collective economic bargaining power of many of the United States’ and, more recently Europe’s, credit and debit card issuers – particularly banks. Visa has tremendous scale in card transaction processing, as they facilitated over $5.7 trillion in credit and debit volume across more than 120 billion transactions, during their fiscal 2016 - well above 2015 levels. Going forward, we fully expect to see this growth trajectory continue, with added help from the integration of Visa Europe which, as we've discussed previously, should help drive double digit accretion.
