Visa Reports Quarterly Beat As Travel & Online Spend Witness Upward Trend – $V $DIA

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, Visa ( V) quarterly earnings beat estimates as more international travel and e-commerce witnessed an increase in spending. Even though travel spending dropped since late December due to the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, the company executives believe the recovery will resume and net revenue will increase in the second fiscal quarter this year.

Cross-border volumes also increased 40%, marked by a sharp increase in travel between September and November as the U.S. border and majority of the borders within Europe reopened. Transactions increased 21% to $47.6 billion during the quarter compared with a year earlier.

“The upside is going to come from the continued recovery of travel and the affluent customer getting back in the mix of spending at the levels they were pre-pandemic,” stated Visa Chairman and Chief Executive Alfred Kelly.
Visa reported a profit of $3.9 billion, or $1.81 per share. Net revenue increased to $7.1 billion for the quarter ended Dec. 31, an increase of 24% over the prior year.
