VIDEO: How to Play the Mobile Banking Revolution

I visited Fox Business Network on Thursday, March 21, to discuss my recent column on the “cashless craze” and some stocks that investors can buy to play the trend.

We hop around a bit, but the stocks highlighted here include:

  • Visa (NYSE:V) and MasterCard (NYSE:MA), which remain the big players in cashless transactions of all types;
  • eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) thanks to PayPal, which is now moving $120 billion a year; and
  • Intuit (NASDAQ:INTU), which is best known for TurboTax and Quicken products but has big potential with its GoPayment mobile transaction app.

And then, of course, there’s constant innovator Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) with its Google Wallet, and deep-pocketed mobile behemoth Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). Both could create something or buy out a smaller competitor with promise — and their hardware chops would obviously make any technology integrated, secure and slick for consumers.

Read my full rundown on “The Next Megashift: Mobile Banking Stocks” in my recent column here, or watch the above video for the highlights.

    Two small caps worthy of a closer look in the mobile banking/electronic payment space are Official Payments (Nasdaq: OPAY) for electronic bill paying and now electronic bill presentment, and Mitek (Nasdaq: MITK) which has patented technology that enables bank deposits using your mobile phone/tablet camera. The same technology is also being groomed for use in securing competitive offers for insurance or credit cards by merely photographing your statement and awaiting competitive bids!
