Dunno. It was up early in sympathy to good report from Mastercard (MA). Now they are both in the tank. Sell on the good news. Good projections too. Go figure.

Good thing I only have 10 shares. I'm in at 190.

It is due to a fricking bat shite insane ruling by a judge regarding swipe fees.

Retailers have been lobbying hard for years for the fed to limit the cost that they pay to banks and payment processors for debit card swipes. Previously there was no limit and the price was set based on the market (what a novel concept!)

The fed created a limit at .21 cents which was roughly half of what was charged before. This of course caused the end of free checking accounts and no noticeable decrease in prices by the retailers so like is typical with federal regulation the cost was simply passed on to the consumer.

The judge today tossed out the rule saying it didn't go low enough... fricking absurd.

Thanks. It wasn't making sense. Knowledge is the key. Again.

Tried to get in when it was down 10% but didn't have the cash sitting there, liquidated a holding and got it at 176.90. Been eyeing it for a while.

No problem, sorry my post probably wasn't the most eloquent explanation ha but I'm pissed off and typing from my phone.

Even with that, lots of room to grow. Still, sucks.

Is the ruling final? I can't see how. But I think it's down mostly because of the "possibility" of the ruling going through. If it goes to appeals, then you'll see a pop, and a big one if the ruling gets overturned.

Not really market based when 4 companies set whatever fee they want... I don't agree with the ruling but it is not as clear cut as you make it out to be and is wayyy above my paygrade

On CNBC they said the court stayed the fees and ordered the Fed to re-visit the fees for a second opinion....from the Fed.

The Fed can appeal if it wants to do so.

Been really busy this morning and didn't see this until now. Should have set an alert for V because I've been thinking about buying lately and was waiting for something like this.

Just got in at $184.99. Obviously no where near the low this morning, but whatever, I'm in it for the long haul.

ETA: and it went back down

Im getting roughed up on some shares I bought this morning at $183, this is utterly ridiculous, last week visa smashed earnings by a mile and it shot up to $195 and today it hit $170??? What a joke, this judge

it really is a great time, their earnings release last week showed the massive growth the company is experiencing, of course as usual big brother sticks his nose where it shouldn't be and messes everything up

Being I'm a little newer to investing and still quite young, Visa has been outside of my price range. However, after seeing yet another great earnings period and no reason for such a huge hit tonight, I purchased my first 10 shares at $180.03. Will be holding on to this until I retire so I'm not sweating too much over such a large purchase so early.
