Life Takes Visa – Should You?

Friday, 14 Mar 2008 | 6:29 PM ET

Visa might well be the hottest IPO of the year. Should you buy shares of the credit-card colossus once it begins trading Wednesday?

The fact that they’re not canceling the IPO all together in this current environment seems positive to me, says Guy Adami. However I wouldn't go rushing in.

I’d also be patient, adds Joe Terranova.

If you’re bearish on credit card receivables short Capital One , suggests Karen Finerman.

More transactions are being done with plastic instead of cash, Adami adds. I think Mastercard wins because they don’t take credit risk.
