NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Visa fell after the company trimmed its forecast for annual revenue growth, citing tepid growth from cross-border transactions.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Shares of credit card processor Visa (V) are slipping in Friday trading after the company reported better-than-expected fiscal third-quarter earnings but trimmed its forecast for annual revenue growth.

Visa reported a quarterly profit of nearly $1.4 billion, or $2.17 a Class A share, up from $1.89 a Class A share, last year.  Revenue grew 5% to nearly $3.2 billion, as the company said it was affected by "a strong U.S. dollar and tepid growth from cross-border transactions."  The company now expects annual revenue growth of 9% to 10%, compared to its previous forecast of 10% to 11%.

Oppenheimer (OPY) analyst Glenn Greene said, "We expect some share weakness near-term given the discouraging cross-border revenue growth trends.  That said, we suspect the underlying causes are transitory.  Also, underlying U.S. and international volumes remain healthy."  He has an Outperform rating on the stock with a $270 12-18 month price target.

At last check, shares of Visa were slipping almost 4% to $213.86.
