Reportedly, Visa Inc. (V) beat estimates for quarterly profit as consumer spending increased and a summer travel boom across much of the United States translated into higher card spending. The world’s largest payments processor raked in higher revenue as payment volumes jumped 12% during the third quarter, boosted by a 40% surge in cross-border volumes. Travel-related cross-border volumes were 16% above 2019. Visa posted an adjusted net income of $1.98 per share, marginally beating the $1.75 a share expected by analysts.
“While a company like Walmart may get hurt if consumers move their spending from higher-margin clothing to low-margin groceries, Visa gets their cut just the same. Whether people buy champagne in a bull market or beer in a recession, Visa stands to earn,” stated Scott Lieberman, founder of TouchdownMoney.com
