Publicly traded credit card networks include American Express (AXP), Capital One (COF), Discover (DFS), MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V).

15:14 EDTVVisa to support consumer payments with Apple Pay
Visa (V) announced it is supporting consumer payments with the new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple (AAPL) Watch. Thanks to a new capability called Visa Token Service, participating financial institutions in the U.S., and eventually abroad, will be able to add Visa debit and credit cards to Apple Pay, Apple’s new payment service, and enable their customers to make easy and secure purchases at select U.S. merchants both in stores and in apps. Visa Token Service technology works by replacing sensitive payment account information found on plastic cards with a digital account number or “token” that can be safely stored on mobile devices and used for in store and in app purchases. Visa will roll out the service to financial institutions in phases, initially supporting early participants in the Apple Pay launch, and then extending the service availability to all of its U.S. clients.
