A hold for the next 3-5 years. The stock has done extremely well. It's looking expensive. Don't add to it now.

She just bought it because she needed consumer exposure. She likes leisure, travel and post-pandemic consumer behaviour of this. Trades below the market multiple and is not well-loved.

TOP PICK
American Express

In fact, Visa's share has risen from 52.8% in 2007 to 61% in 2022 (based on transaction volume). Mastercard holds 25.5%, down from 28.2% in that period, while AmEx has slipped from 15.6% to 11.3%. AmEx caters to the business class and wealthier clientele. When they spend, AmEx rallies, but if they spend less, then AmEx falters. That sums up AmEx in the past year, and it's currently enjoying the best momentum. If you expect this trend to continue, then buy AmEx. If you want less volatility, an established brand and consistent earnings, then go with Visa.

BUY
American Express

Just delivered a good quarter and great guidance. Last November they reported that October sales were light, so short-sellers piled in while shares rose. So, today's rally triggered a short squeeze that drove the Dow

American Express

They report Friday. They have a track record of reporting solid numbers, but then someone points out a bad line item and shares fall. Wait for the second day when some analyst downgrades it to buy./

WATCH
American Express

Wait till they report next week and listen to the CEO's comments before deciding. Buy on the dip? No. Shares are mid-range.

BUY
American Express

Owns a big position.  Their November loan balances were up 15% while delinquencies up only 50 basis points. Trades at 16x forward. Likes this.

BUY
American Express

Likes trend, and believes in value of traditional business. Likes nature of company. Stock indicating bounce off of the floor. Will recommend buying small amounts.

DON'T BUY
American Express

Owns shares in Visa, but credit card business strong. Credit risk a concern with business. Visa a pure "payment processing" business. Better options in sector. 

investment companies / funds
BUY
American Express

Just reported overall positive results, but shares were clubbed because they didn't raise their full-year forecast, and volume growth decelerated. However, US spending rose 9% YOY with travel/entertainment up 13% including restaurant spending. Gen-Z and Millennial spending up 18%.

PAST TOP PICK
American Express
(A Top Pick Jul 22/22, Down 2%)

Very attractive business with excellent capital allocation skills. Share count keeps going down. Not worried about slowing economy with this business. Share price a good place to buy. Berkshire Hathaway a major shareholder. Recent earnings exceeded expectations. 

investment companies / funds
STRONG BUY
American Express

Shocked that it trades below 15x forward PE. Constant-currency business is up 12%. Good mix of revenues and are managing operational expenses. US consumer growth is 13%, international is 23%. Much cheaper than Mastercard.

investment companies / funds
BUY
American Express

The valuation of Visa and Mastercard has been elevated, but the growth has supported it. AmEx has the cheaper valuation; they benefit from international travel. He prefers AXP. He owns a little Visa. The future of payments processing? It's Apple Pay, which kids use through their phones. The sector has a lot of moving parts and competition, so it's hard to say where it's going.
