Summary

Cash is no longer king for point-of-sale transactions, with only 12% market share compared to 38% for credit cards, 29% for debit cards, and 10% for the fast-growing digital wallet sector. We see a long secular road for growth, as digital payments are in the early stages of transition. Factors driving this trend include U.S. banks and the Federal Reserve encouraging digital over paper money; the pandemic, which has accelerated contactless payments as a safety step; and greater merchant acceptance for small dollar amounts. Importantly, the emerging generations (Millennials and Gen Z) embrace both mobile banking and digital payments. Forecasts call for digital-payment transaction value to grow at an 11% compound annual rate for the next five years and to reach $11 trillion from the 2020 level of $5.4 trillion. Several companies in the Argus Research fundamental universe of coverage are in position to take advantage of this opportunity. Each of the following stocks is rated BUY at Argus.
