As fintech reaches new heights, and alternatives modes of payments ranging from Square’s Cash App to Cryptocurrencies surge, we take a deeper look at a veteran of the payment industry, Visa, Inc.

Up nearly 200% over 5 years and now valued at $500Bn, the California based credit card and payment technology company has traditionally been compared to MasterCard (Market cap $360Bn), but can Visa and its legacy competitor maintain leadership and grow as fast as their challengers (Square, Dwolla, Stripe, PayPal, etc.)?

Industry analysts tend to think so, broadly speaking, as the consensus has the incumbents growing between 15% and 20% over the next 5 years, while maintaining incredible margin performance (50% net income margin). That said, much of these expectations are already factored in the share price and our DCF analysis suggests that the company may be overvalued.
