Nike (NYSE: NKE) is recognized as one of the most iconic brand names in the athletic footwear and apparel industry. The company has more than 1,000 Nike-branded stores in both the U.S. and international markets and chalked up revenue of $37.4 billion for the fiscal year ended May 31. Although Nike incurred a $790 million net loss for its fourth quarter, investors should note that this was chiefly due to numerous store closures in North America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
Consumers now want not only to shop at their convenience but also minimize personal contact with point-of-sale devices following the coronavirus pandemic.
Since it went public in 2008, payment processing giant Visa (NYSE: V) has delivered returns that have been nothing short of extraordinary. It's fair to say that Visa has made some millionaires out of its early shareholders. Although the performance so far has been incredible, there's a strong case to be made that Visa could still be a smart growth investment to own for the next 12 years -- and beyond.
Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) has been notified of an unsolicited "mini-tender offer" by Ponos Industries LLC to purchase up to 1 million shares of its Class A common stock, representing approximately 0.06% of Visa’s outstanding shares of Class A common stock.
Visa (NYSE: V) beat earnings estimates in its fiscal third quarter but saw a decline in net income due primarily to a reduction in consumer spending related to the recession. Revenue was down 17% to $4.8 billion, driven by declines in payments volume, cross-border volume, and processed transactions. Payments volume was down 10% year over year, which reflects lower consumer spending due to the recession, high unemployment, and stay-at-home orders.
Visa Inc reported that its quarterly profit plunged 23% in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 as large-scale layoffs due to the lockdowns, aimed at limiting the spread of coronavirus, dented consumer spending.
Visa shares traded down nearly 2% after market hours. The quarter was the first to reflect how spending on Visa transactions was impacted for three straight months by coronavirus-related shutdowns. Visa said total payments volume decreased 10%, on a constant dollar basis, and the number of process transactions declined 13% from a year earlier.
Visa (V) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of 3.92% and 0.62%, respectively, for the quarter ended June 2020. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?
Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) today announced its fiscal third quarter 2020 financial results through an earnings release that will be furnished with the Securities and Exchange Commission on a Form 8-K and will be available on its Investor Relations website at http://investor.visa.com/sec-filings/default.aspx.
(Bloomberg) -- Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. kept up its record-breaking streak Tuesday, briefly becoming the world’s 10th most valuable corporation before paring gains.Taiwan’s biggest stock was up around 1.2% in Taipei, after rising as much as 9.9% and going beyond $410 billion in value, leapfrogging U.S. giants Johnson & Johnson and Visa Inc. in the process. Daily stock moves are capped at 10% in Taiwan’s equity market.It’s difficult to overstate the influence that TSMC wields on Taiwan’s financial markets. Making up almost a third of the local benchmark, it has single-handedly pushed the Taiex past a record that had stood for three decades. Its rally is attracting foreign flows into Taiwanese equities, increasing demand for the local currency. The Taiwan dollar rose 1% Tuesday to the strongest since April 2018.The latest boost to TSMC’s shares came after Intel Corp. warned last week that its 7-nanometer chips are behind schedule and it may outsource their production. The U.S. chipmaker is expected to funnel new business to TSMC, given its global lead in silicon fabrication and track record of making semiconductors for the world’s largest tech corporations.Intel’s struggles are buoying stocks in Asian suppliers of made-to-order chips. Samsung Electronics Co., which is investing heavily in its own foundry business, jumped as much as 5.8% Tuesday, its biggest intraday gain in almost two months. Chinese rival Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. climbed 6.6% in Hong Kong.“Samsung Electronics’ position as a foundry partner is expected to rise. Korean investors anticipate that Samsung could produce Intel’s CPU and discrete GPU,” Hana Financial Investment analysts wrote in a note. But “to narrow the gap with TSMC, it is essential for Samsung to expand its Austin fab.”A report on Monday suggested that Intel had placed orders with TSMC for 180,000 units of 6nm chips for 2021. Meanwhile, brokerages including Nomura Holdings Inc. and Credit Suisse Group AG upgraded TSMC to the equivalent of buy.(Updates with share price and analyst comment from first paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Sudan’s government calls itself transitional, but what it is attempting is transformational. In the latest raft of reforms announced earlier this month, it abolished a law against apostasy, ended punishment by flogging, criminalized female genital mutilation, dropped rules requiring women to get a permit from a male family member to travel with their children — and loosened prohibitions on the sale and consumption of alcohol.Last week, the government also began the final phase of peace talks with rebels that could see the latter join the administration.Still a month short of its first anniversary, the government — headed by a council of civilian and military representatives, and led by Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, a former United Nations economist — seems determined to dismantle, without delay, the poisonous legacy of the ousted former dictator Omar al-Bashir. Sudanese activists and international rights groups are cheering it on.It is also being encouraged by the Trump administration, which has upgraded diplomatic ties. After a gap of more than two decades, Washington now has a Sudanese ambassador. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said the U.S. will appoint an ambassador to Khartoum.But the U.S. continues to hold out on the gesture that would mean the most to the transitional government: removing Sudan from the State Department’s list of countries that sponsor terrorism. The designation, which it shares with Iran, North Korea and Syria, restricts the country’s access to aid, investment and remittances.As I wrote last year, shortly after Hamdok’s appointment, Sudan doesn’t belong on that list. Indeed, many in the national security establishment in Washington argue that it should have been dropped years ago. For all his tyranny, even Bashir had long been cooperating with American counterterrorism efforts. The Trump administration acknowledged this in 2017, when it removed most U.S. sanctions on Sudan.And yet, the U.S. remains reluctant to take the final step, even though the transitional government has repeatedly demonstrated its eagerness to curry Washington’s favor. Pompeo’s explanation, that “we always measure twice and cut once before we remove someone from a list like that,” is vague at best.There are other voices in Washington counseling caution. Keeping Sudan on the list, they say, gives the U.S. leverage over the military, to ensure that it doesn’t undermine the democratizing process. Better to save delisting as the final reward, for an elected government after the three-year transition has been completed.The risk of recidivism exists, of course. Witness a violent mutiny by members of the intelligence services in January. In March, Hamdok escaped an assassination attempt. Although the government has been able to imprison Bashir and some of his closest lieutenants — they face trial for genocide and other war crimes at the International Criminal Court — other dangerous figures in fatigues still wield considerable power in Khartoum. Mohamed Hamdan “Hemedti,” leader of the infamous Janjaweed militias blamed for the genocide in Darfur, now runs the Rapid Support Forces, and portrays himself as a hero in the country’s fight against the coronavirus.But to imagine that keeping Sudan on the terrorism-sponsors list will ward off counter-revolutionary forces is to greatly exaggerate American leverage — and to underestimate the protest movement that brought down Bashir. The protesters maintain a sharp-eyed vigilance on the military, and despite the pandemic, have kept up pressure on the government to stay the course on reforms.Certainly, they could use international help to keep the government honest. To prevent backsliding in Khartoum, the U.S. has plenty of carrots and sticks it can use.Smoothing the way for investment and aid, for instance, would allow Hamdok to rebuild Sudan’s economy, which was decrepit even before the pandemic. Some investors, having taken their own measure of Africa’s third-largest country, are not waiting on a formal delisting. American companies ranging from Visa Inc and Oracle to Yum! Brands (which owns Kentucky Fried Chicken and Pizza Hut) have announced partnerships in Sudan. International donors last month pledged $2 billion in aid. Many more would undoubtedly be emboldened to follow if the terrorism-sponsorship designation were removed. And success on the economic front would do much to legitimize civilian rule.Moreover, the threat of sanctions should suffice as a disincentive. After all, for those who need reminding, being taken off the list of terrorism sponsors is not a permanent condition: North Korea was delisted in 2008, and subsequently relisted by the Trump administration.This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Bobby Ghosh is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist.
