Johnny HopkinsStock Screener4 Comments

As part of the weekly research here at The Acquirer’s Multiple we’re always interested in superinvestors who hold the same stocks that appear in our Acquirer’s Multiple Stock Screeners, based on their latest 13F’s. Investors such as Warren Buffett, Joel Greenblatt, Carl Icahn, Jim Simons, Prem Watsa, Jeremy Grantham, Seth Klarman, Ray Dalio, and Howard Marks.

While doing this research we also uncovered a number of superinvestors that currently hold stocks that don’t appear in our screens at the moment. So we’re now providing a new weekly feature article called ‘One Stock Superinvestors Are Buying‘ which features one stock that appears in a number of superinvestor portfolos, and who’s buying it. This week we’ll take a look at:

Visa Inc (NYSE: V)

Visa is the largest payment processor in the world. In fiscal 2019, it processed almost $9 trillion in purchase transactions. Visa operates in over 200 countries and processes transactions in over 160 currencies. Its systems are capable of processing over 65,000 transactions per second.

A quick look at the price chart below for Visa shows us that the stock is down 4% in the past twelve months.

    1. I recently enjoyed your book. Very interesting article. Did these investors own visa before the recent correction or are they building their positions now?

      1. Thanks Ryan. I’m working of the latest 13f’s for Q4 2019. Some of which were reported as late as last month.
