    Why You Should Buy and Hold American Express Stock

    Although this year the stock market sentiment is in a much better state, the banks still have their reputation that they cannot hold their rallies. But therein lies part of the opportunity in American Express (NYSE:AXP) stock today.Source: Marcus Quigmire Via FlickrThis round of bank earnings has so far gone much better than the last one. There is some chatter about a sustainable rally in their stocks. On Tuesday we even saw a flip from red to green in stocks like Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) and JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM).This hasn't happened in a while, so perhaps the trend that banks can't hold their greens is dying. If so then this will provide a lift to AXP stock as well.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsMoreover, transaction companies like AXP, Visa (NYSE:V), MasterCard (NYSE:MA) and Square (NYSE:SQ) rally in sympathy with money center banks. So if the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEARCA:XLF) rallies then so will the transactors like AXP.In addition, AXP is an excellent financial stock that has proven over the years that they can manage through adversity. Case in point was the debacle over losing the Costco (NASDAQ:COST) account. The stock suffered for a while but has since set new all-time highs.I was lucky to ride the last mega breakout in AXP from the December lows. American Express rallied over 25% so today I am trying to catch the next opportunity. Usually, I consider these technical opportunities tactical trades but this one doubles as a long term conviction investment. This is a stock I want to own for the long term. * 10 Best Stocks to Buy and Hold Forever The reaction this morning is slightly negative from the earnings. Management reported a boring quarter where they barely beat the bottom line and narrowly missed sales. The forward guidance was in line so they gave traders nothing to cheer. So AXP will move in line with the overall equity market for now.So if this rally in stocks continues, then AXP stock has the opportunity to break out from $114.40 to target another $10 run from there. There will be resistance there but if the bulls can close above it then the bears will be tired so the stock will overshoot higher.The macroeconomic condition still favors the bullish thesis. We do have threats from lingering headlines of tariff wars. But as we approach another round of elections means that those deals will happen so we go back to trading the profit and loss statements rather than headlines.Most importantly, the threat from the Federal Reserve inverting the curve has disappeared. They have affirmed that they won't cause the short term rates rise above the long term rates so this relives fears for banks. The steeper the curve the better are their profits.For American Express stock, the short term price action from the earnings headline is meaningless for the long term. All global transactions will be electronic so the demand on their services will continue to increase. There are only but a few companies that serve this market and they are a global household name. So they are well set to continue to prosper for years.Then there is the China market opportunity. The U.S. and China are nearing a deal where companies like AXP could have a new opportunity become available in the largest market on the planet.The short term technical threat for AXP stock is at $108 per share. If the bears push price below it they could target $102 per share. This is not a forecast but it is a scenario that could unfold in the next few weeks. But even then, this won't change the overall opportunity for the long term.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.

    Going Into Earnings, Is Visa Stock Everywhere You Want It to Be?

    Visa (NYSE:V) is slated to reports its second-quarter earnings on Apr. 24 after the market closes. The payments processing giant continues to build market share and establish a reputation for beating earnings estimates, enabling Visa stock to trade near its all-time highs.Source: Shutterstock However, the company has begun to lose one high-profile customer. Moreover, a well-funded competitor has entered the credit-card business. Those developments could cause some owners of V stock to question its rising price-earnings multiple. * 7 Stocks to Buy for Spring Season Growth Although those issues don't pose an immediate threat to Visa's dominance, they could make investors think twice about buying Visa stock at its current levels.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Visa Should Beat Analysts' Estimates, But Is That Enough?For the second quarter, analysts on average expects Visa's earnings per share to come in at $1.24. If Visa hits that target, its EPS will have risen 11.7% year-over-year. Analysts' consensus revenue estimate is $5.46 billion, versus the $5.07 billion of revenue that the company reported in the same quarter of 2018.Since V has exceeded analysts' consensus earnings expectations in each of the previous four quarters, its Q2 results will probably beat the consensus outlook as well. As our society continues to increasingly give up cash, Visa and its peers should continue to benefit from that trend.Furthermore, Visa continues to gain market share from archrival Mastercard (NYSE:MA) as well as peers such as American Express (NYSE:AXP) and Discover (NYSE:DFS). As late as the third quarter of last year, Visa claimed more than 61% of total U.S. card volume. That makes Visa stock a compelling long-term buy on any pullback, even if the company's Q2 results are surprisingly negative.However, I see signs that the short-term outlook of Visa is not entirely positive. The price-earnings ratio of Visa stock now stands at around 34.5. That comes in slightly ahead of the long-term average multiple of V stock, which is about 32.6. Since Visa's profit is expected to increase 15.2% this year, I think Visa stock price is mildly overvalued.Meanwhile, V stock looks less than compelling when investors can buy AXP stock at about 14 times its earnings. By buying AXP, whose profits are expected to rise 11% this year, traders obtain about 72% of the growth of Visa at around 40% of the price. Visa Stock Faces Rising ThreatsAlso, Visa has used its dominant position to raise the fees that it charges merchants. That has prompted Kroger (NYSE:KR) to refuse to accept Visa cards at some of its locations. For now, Kroger is only refusing to accept Visa's credit cards at 21 of its Foods Co. stores in California. However, it will soon extend this ban to both its Smith's Food and Drug stores and its fuel centers in seven states.That places V in an awkward position. If Kroger stops accepting Visa at all of its stores or if other retailers start refusing to accept Visa cards at some of their stores, Visa's revenues could meaningfully drop. However, if Visa relents and lowers its fees, that will likely reduce its profits, negatively impacting Visa stock.Moreover, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has partnered with Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Mastercard on its new Apple Card. At first glance, the card provides some benefits, such as faster cash-back rewards and enhanced security, since it does not use numbers.Still, it appears that the card will limit most of those benefits to consumers who are already using Apple's iOS ecosystem. For that reason, I would not expect the Apple Card to supplant Visa's dominant position. However, Apple Card could take market share from Visa, negatively impacting the Visa stock price. Concluding Thoughts on Visa StockAlthough Visa will more than likely post higher-than-expected earnings and revenue, emerging competitive threats could create doubts about Visa stock.Meanwhile, the valuations of Visa stock have begun to climb above their long-term averages. Also, Visa's rising fees have started to prompt merchants to push their customers to other cards. Furthermore, the Apple Card will give consumers another reason to avoid Visa.Despite the new threats, Visa stock should continue to benefit from double-digit profit growth. However, retailers and customers will take advantage of the lower fees of Visa's peers. Also, traders can invest in a credit-card network at a much lower multiple by buying AXP stock.As a result, the driving force of Visa stock could be the rising threats of better alternatives for multiple players. That does not mean investors should sell Visa stock. But investors still need to account for those dangers when they're considering buying V stock.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

    AXP Earnings Look Key for American Express Stock

    It seems overly anxious to argue that American Express (NYSE:AXP) stock needs big first-quarter results. After all, American Express stock is doing just fine, even if it's been quiet.Source: Shutterstock AXP stock did dip sharply in December, but it's recovered those losses. Over the last year, American Express stock has gained nearly 17%, and it has more than doubled in the last three-plus years. * 7 Dental Stocks to Buy That Will Make You Smile Still, AXP earnings, due to be reported on Thursday morning, do look reasonably important. The outlook of AXP stock still seems somewhat skeptical, if not outright bearish. Investors are worried about its growth and market share. Its Q4 earnings were disappointing, but the market quickly moved on and kept pushing American Express stock higher. Investors may not be so forgiving if AXP earnings are disappointing again on Thursday.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAXP stock has twice failed to break through resistance at about $113, and the average Street price target for American Express stock of $118 suggests an increase of just 6% from its current level.A "beat and raise" Q1 would likely cause analysts to raise their price targets on AXP stock, leaving AXP well-positioned to reach new highs. If AXP earnings miss expectations, however, investors may have concerns about AXP's growth, causing American Express stock to at best trade sideways, as it has for nearly seven months now.As a result, Thursday's earnings do seem to be important for American Express stock, and investors should review them closely. Expectations for AXP EarningsWall Street is expecting a moderately slow start to the year for American Express. Analysts' consensus revenue estimate projects just 7.6% year-over-year, top-line growth, below the company's full-year guidance of 8%-10%. The company's margins are expected to be pretty much flat, and analysts on average expect its earnings per share to come in at $1.98, up 6.5% year-over-year.That, too suggests improvement over the rest of the year. Consensus for 2019 as a whole is modestly above the midpoint of the company's guidance, and projects 11% EPS growth.That's good news for AXP stock. AXP is not exactly in a "no-lose" situation, but analysts already expect its growth to accelerate as the year goes on. An in-line quarter, or even a modest miss, won't necessarily endanger that outlook.On the other hand, if AXP results solidly beat expectations, its outlook may get more interesting. Under that scenario, American Express will have started the year strongly, and will still have the same room for improvement during the rest of the year. Full-year growth estimates may well get raised, and the earnings multiple assigned to American Express stock can also rise. If that occurs, AXP can reach new highs. AXP Stock and the Post-Earnings CallThat said, the numbers aren't going to be the only aspect of the release to which investors will pay close attention. American Express re-upped its partnership with Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) earlier this month. That was a big win for AmEx, which already had lost co-branding agreements with Costco Wholesale (NASDAQ:COST) and JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ:JBLU).But American Express had to pay up for the win. It was Delta stock that soared on the news, given that its payments from the deal will double in five years. The end results of that negotiation certainly suggests that American Express' edge over rivals Visa (NYSE:V) and Mastercard (NYSE:MA) has narrowed.So investors will have concerns about AXP's cost and market share Visa and Mastercard simply are growing faster than AmEx. And the main concern about American Express - and the reason AXP stock is so much cheaper than V and MA - is that at some point, its earnings simply are going to stall out. The entrance of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) into the space only adds to those worries.There likely will be some questions about the Delta deal and the kind of returns American Express expects on the resulting $3 billion-plus increase in annual spending. Analysts will want management's take on the Apple Card as well. AmEx needs to answer those questions well, and it needs to convince analysts and investors that its place in the credit-card industry is secure. Be Careful With American Express StockAll told, AXP's Q1 results do seem poised to change the outlook of AXP stock. A beat-and-raise quarter will suggest that AXP's growth remains intact, making the 12.4 forward, price-earnings multiple of AXP stock seem awfully cheap. Any weakness - whether in the company's results or its guidance - will cause investors to ask if fears about AXP's growth are reasonable.That doesn't mean AXP stock is going to move 10% or more on Thursday; AXP simply isn't that type of stock. Rather, AXP's Q1 earnings could shape how American Express stock trades over the next two months and determine whether AXP stock can finally break through resistance.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.
