What Visa's Earnings Mean for Mutual Fund Investors (V)

Shauna O'Brien Jan 30, 2015

After the closing bell on Thursday, Visa (V) released its first quarter financial results. Here’s what the report means for mutual fund investors.

Inside V’s Earnings


The credit card company reported net income of $1.57 billion, or $2.53 per share, up from $1.41 billion, or $2.20 per share, last year. Analysts expected to see EPS of $2.49.

Revenue rose to $3.38 billion from $3.16 billion a year ago. Analysts expected to see revenue $3.34 billion.

Visa reaffirmed its 2015 revenue growth outlook of growth in low double digits.

Stock Split
Visa also announced a 4-for-1 stock split.

High Valuation

Share prices will soon be more affordable for investors following the 4-for-1 stock split, but that will not change the stock’s high valuation. Visa is currently trading at about 26x 2015 earnings estimates, which may be a bit rich for investors. Visa’s dividend yield remains under 1%, so investors buying shares will be counting on its share price to continue at its current pace.
