Visa U.S. Spending Momentum Index (SMI) Rises To 111.9 In November – $V

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, Visa Inc. (V)  announced the U.S. Spending Momentum Index (SMI) of 111.9 in November adjusted seasonally, an increase from 1.3 points in October, marking the second consecutive month of acceleration in consumer spending momentum. The SMI’s further increase above 100 shows that even more consumers are spending more than they did a year ago. The Visa SMI is an economic indicator showing the strength of consumer health spending. A Visa SMI above 100, shows strong consumer spending momentum, and below 100 depicts weakened consumer spending.

“This month’s SMI reading once again reinforces the narrative that consumer spending remains robust to round out this year. It appears that consumers are looking past the high inflation readings in recent months at least for the time being,” stated Wayne Best, Visa’s Chief Economist.
