LONDON,  April 1, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Payment services providers such as The Western Union Company (NYSE: WU), and
Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN) have been facing increasing competition due to
the emergence of mobile payments. The payment services industry will have to
lower their transaction fees in order to compete against mobile payment
platforms. Meanwhile, credit card companies such as American Express Company
(NYSE: AXP), Visa Inc. (NYSE: V), and MasterCard Inc. (NYSE: MA) could benefit
from a rebound in consumer confidence. Confidence among U.S. consumers has been
improving due to a recovery in the labor market. On Thursday, shares of all five
companies edged higher as the broad market posted gains on the final trading day
of the first quarter of 2013. StockCall free coverage on AXP, WU, V, GPN, and MA
