Out of 22 Wall Street analysts who monitor V, the consensus analyst rating on Visa is a Strong Buy
It's important to note that analyst ratings are not stock recommendations, nor are they financial advice.
Raimo Lenschow, a top 13% analyst from Barclays maintains V with a strong buy rating and raises their V price target from $266.00 to $270.00, on Jan 30, 2023.
Barclays analysts Ramsey El-Assal and Raimo Lenschow nudged up their price target on Visa Inc. by 1.5% following the release of the company's Q1 2023 earnings report on 2023/01/26.
The new target accounts for "management's updated Q2 guidance but unchanged FY 2023 guidance," the analysts told investors.
For Q1 2023, Visa reported:
With respect to guidance, management reiterated its previous guidance, CFO Vasant Prabhu saying on the earnings call: "When we talked to you last quarter, we said for the full-year revenue growth would be somewhere in the mid-teens on a constant-dollar basis, adjusted for Russia.
"And then when you adjust for Russia and you adjust for a full-year impact at that time of about two points on FX, it was going to be high single digits in nominal dollars. And so, you know sort of where we are in Q1 and Q2.
And exchange rates have moved around some so you can do some of the math. We're basically not changing any views on the second half right now because trends have been still fairly stable. The only thing you might want to change is what the exchange rate impact in the second half might be based on where these are right now. I also gave you fairly clear operating expense expectations.
"We were about 15% growth in the first quarter. We said growth will be two to three points lower in nominal dollar terms in the second quarter, another two to three points lower in the third quarter, and another two to three points lower in the fourth quarter.
"And that reflects what we had said last quarter, that is expense growth will moderate through the year, both as we moderate the rate of increase when also as we lap higher levels of expenses from last year. So, those pretty much are the sort of the broad outlines of what we said last quarter."
Chairman & CEO Alfred F. Kelly, Jr. commented: "I continue to see a bright future for Visa and believe that we have the right strategy to invest in and capitalize on the opportunities ahead across consumer payments, new flows and value-added services.
"On 2023/02/01, Ryan McInerney will become CEO of Visa, and I will assume the role of Executive Chairman."
