Rod Bourgeois, a senior analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., said that MasterCard and Visa could experience a small hit to their revenue because of fees banks are planning to levy against debit card customers.

"Moves by banks to charge customers for debit card usage are modest incremental negatives for Visa and MasterCard," Bourgeois wrote.
