Barclays reiteratess an 'Overweight' on Visa (NYSE: V) price target of $133.00.

Analyst, Darrin D. Peller, said, "Over the past few years regulatory intervention has occurred at an elevated rate, having a profound impact on the financial services industry, including the U.S. payments market...While we note that the dust is far from settled, especially with the ongoing DoJ investigation of V's strategy, we think the scale possessed by Visa (NYSE: V) and MasterCard (NYSE: MA) should enable them to price more effectively than the smaller networks, and in turn, drive a greater share of the routing of PIN debit volumes from merchants."

All in, Peller sees Visa shares are a safe haven, citing no direct European spending exposure or euro currency.
