Oppenheimer reiterates an 'Outperform' on Visa (NYSE: V) price target of $150.00 (from $140.00).

Analyst, Glenn Greene, said, "V's intra-quarter volume update for July/August is encouraging. August volumes indicate a meaningful acceleration in both US credit volume and cross-border volume, which suggests building quarterly momentum. August volume partially benefited from mix of days, however. Also, US debit volumes continue to gradually improve (-6% in August vs. -8% in July), which could suggest V's pricing efforts in response to Durbin are proving successful. Somewhat counter to recent travel trends cross-border volume growth remains very healthy, and accelerated in August to 13% Y/Y (vs. 9% in July). Reflecting more moderate advertising expenses, higher Service yield, and intra-quarter volumes, we raise our FY12/FY13 estimates." (FY12 from $6.08 to $6.18 and FY13 from $7.12 to $7.26)
