Visa Stock Buy

If you're a reader of my blog, you know that I typically invest in companies with dividend yields above 2%. Visa Stock doesn't fit this investment strategy. I do on occasion take chances on riskier investments regardless of yield, or in companies with a fantastic growth opportunity regardless of yield. In this case it's the latter. I bought 25 shares of Visa Stock at a per share price of $79.11. The total invested amount of this purchase is $1,977.75. Visa Stock pays a very low yield of 0.69%. There's not much near-term dividend income with this purchase. But there's growth; Visa has some of the strongest fundamentals of any company in any sector. The future is very bright for Visa.

Visa Stock Dividend History

  • Annual Dividend Yield of 0.69%
  • Annual Dividend Rate (IAD) $0.56
  • Payout Ratio (TTM) of 18.25%
  • Dividend Coverage Ratio (TTM) of 547.95%
  • 3 Year Dividend Growth Rate of 29.7%
  • 5 Year Dividend Growth Rate of 30.9%

The chart below shows above average annual dividend yield increases. However, it not overly impressive considering the stock started at a near 0% yield in 2008. Even if Visa continues to average its 5-year CAGR of 30.9%, the stock is still years away from being above a 2% yield. This is fine with me because I'm not buying Visa Stock for dividends. I'm buying Visa Stock because Visa is the undisputed worldwide leader in credit card transactions.
