Shares of Total System have outperformed the industry, year to date. Its  second-quarter earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate and grew year over year. Following strong results, the company pulled up its 2017 earnings guidance. Management anticipates adjusted EPS to grow about 15-18% year over year.  The company is set to benefit from its robust NetSpend business, while the TransFirst acquisition will support its merchant acquiring business. A number of acquisitions made by it have contributed to overall growth. However, stiff competition and huge cash outlays on acquisition and investments pose as headwinds. Further, the new rules aimed at boosting consumer protection for prepaid accounts and cards are likely to hurt the company's top-line.
