Confident Investor comments: At this time, I think that a Confident Investor can cautiously invest in Capital One Financial Corp. as long as the price is correct and the indicators that I describe in my book The Confident Investor are favorable. Most of the fundamentals of this company are good but there are some concerns. I think there are better investment options, so I am going to remove Capital One from my Watch List.

If you would like to understand how to evaluate companies like I do on this site, please read my book, The Confident Investor. You can review the best companies that I have found (and I probably invest my own money in most of these companies) in my Watch List.

Whether through its Apple Pay mobile wallet or a new, person-to-person payments network reportedly in the works, Apple [stckqut]AAPL[/stckqut] wants to be at the center of consumers’ financial lives in the same way it has changed the way people communicate, listen to music and, if other ventures are successful, watch TV and even drive. Given Apple’s track record of disruption, the company’s plans could put the traditional financial services industry on the defensive.

The gadget maker is said to be in talks with several major banks to launch a personal payments service that would allow, say, friends to split a check or emigrants to send money back home via their iPhones. It would compete with existing services like Square, Android Pay or Venmo, which is operated by PayPal [stckqut]PYPL[/stckqut]. PayPal has seen its share price tumble since reports about Apple’s initiative emerged.

The Wall Street Journal said that Apple may launch the venture in partnership with JPMorgan Chase [stckqut]JPM[/stckqut], Capital One Financial Corp. [stckqut]COF[/stckqut], Wells Fargo [stckqut]WFC[/stckqut] and U.S. Bancorp [stckqut]USB[/stckqut].

The service could be a boon for those financial institutions in the short term. Although they would have to cede a portion of so-called interchange fees to Apple, likely about 15 percent, they could make up the difference in volume if an Apple-branded service encourages a spike in electronic payments. But longer term, market watchers say, the banks risk becoming an anonymous transaction engine rather than the all-encompassing service providers that currently play a central role in consumers’ financial lives.
