Square Inc. /zigman2/quotes/205989440/composite SQ -0.43% announced late Tuesday that it would be hosting its investor day as a virtual event "to accommodate ongoing travel and workplace restrictions." The payments company will webcast its presentation on March 24 beginning at 8:30 a.m. PT. Fellow payments company Fiserv Inc. /zigman2/quotes/204817680/composite FISV -0.29% said Wednesday that it is pushing back its own investor day to an undetermined date in the fall "due to an abundance of caution related to the coronavirus."

Fiserv reiterated its 2020 outlook for 6% to 8% internal revenue growth and 23% to 27% growth in adjusted earnings per share.
