Visa Inc is a profitable Consumer Financial Services company that trades on the NYSE. It operates a retail electronic payments network. The Company facilitates global commerce through the transfer of value and information among financial institutions, merchants, consumers, businesses and government entities. Its primary customers are financial institutions, for which it provides product platforms encompassing consumer credit, debit, prepaid and commercial payments. VisaNet, its centralized, global processing platform, enables the Company to provide financial institutions and merchants with a range of product platforms, transaction processing and related value-added services. The Company owns a family of payment brands, including Visa, Visa Electron, PLUS and Interlink, which it licenses to its customers for use in their payment programs. It manages and promotes its brands through advertising, promotional and sponsorship initiatives, and by card usage and merchant acceptance. In my opinion, VISA is a great company for covered calls and naked puts. I originally purchased 300 shares when the stock first came to market in 2007. I was exercised at $70.00 on the stock in summer 2008. For the rest of the year I did naked puts on the stock. I believe this stock is undervalued but nevertheless, it trades in a range making naked put and covered call writing viable. I do believe that over time this stock will advance to over $100.00, but that could take many years or may never happen. I have no idea where the stock is heading, but I do like the premiums and volatility of this stock. As of August 2009 it pays a quarterly dividend of .105 cents. I am not as interested in owning the stock. I am interest in generating income by selling naked puts.
