SunTrust On Visa: 'We Remain Adamantly Bullish'


Shares of Visa Inc (NYSE: V) have been volatile in the last one year and are up 15 percent since April 23, 2015. SunTrust Robinson Humphrey’s Andrew Jeffrey maintained a Buy rating for the company. The analyst commented, “We remain adamantly bullish and recommend that investors add on any weakness.”

Reduced Net Revenue Guidance
