BUY
He likes the payment companies. He owns MA, but likes Visa just the same. Rough the past little while, due to fewer cross-border transactions and travel. These names will continue to move higher. Long-term chart is very strong. Digital only recently surpassed cash, so still lots of growth. Payment companies have more upside, as they'll benefit on a much greater scale from the economy recovering and borders reopening.

WAIT
Last couple of years, has suffered because of the pandemic. Travel in US has gone up, but not so much in Canada. Future's a bit fuzzy with fintech. We might see more decentralization, though MA is trying to be part of that digital currency process. As transactions pick up next year, it should do well. In January, transactions tend to slow down. Hold off until at least February.

BUY
He owns it and although it hasn't done much in the past it is now growing in the high teens which makes him bullish on it. Also 30% is generated from Asia.

BUY
He owns MA instead of AXP, and knows Visa well. All are positioned very well for the move to a cashless society. Ramping up investments in fintech and bitcoin-type currencies. Likes them going forward.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jun 22/21, Down 10%) Prolonged return to travel, plus worry that will be overtaken by fintech and crypto. Overall trend of cash to digital conversion. Partnering with fintech. Internal A2A development. Still bullish. Expects up over 20% in next 18 months.
other services
BUY
Payment processors under lots of pressure, due to fintech disruption. No reason for such a pullback, as the networks remain intact, which Visa and MA dominate globally. Lack of tourism has hurt. Should recover next year. Tremendous free cashflow, levered to consumer spending and travel, increased buyback program.

BUY on WEAKNESS
It's down $95 from its $401 peak. A bear stock. It just boosted its share buyback by $8 billion and raised the dividend by 11%. Investors fear MA will get hit if Omicron disrupts international commerce. Payment stocks are hated now, and he expect this stock to fall a little more before it rises--you gotta start somewhere. Worth buying long term.
other services
HOLD
A lot of the payment companies suffered throughout the pandemic. Further lockdowns have made the stocks sell off again. Still a secular trend from cash to digital. Ignore the noise over the next 6 months. Not much difference between it and Visa, though MA might have a bit more growth.
other services
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Nov 19/20, Down 2%) Pandemic affected numbers. Cross-border spending is lucrative. Revenue for 2021 should exceed pre-pandemic levels. Long-term secular trend of cash to digital. Revenue growth expected to be 20%.
other services
TOP PICK
Despite pressures of competition and valuation, credit card market is still formidably placed for electronic payments. Will benefit from highly profitable cross-border traffic. Lots of other side businesses. Sees 20% annual compounded growth. Solid, long-term investment. Yield is 0.54%. (Analysts’ price target is $430.81)
other services
HOLD
The payment companies have all been hit. Global footprint, will participate in the recovery. He'd slightly prefer Visa over MA, but they're close. Not cheap, but better growth ahead. Stick with it.
other services
BUY
They held their analyst day today where they announced terrific long-term growth targets. They delivered an excellent quarter recently.

BUY
A play on cross-border travel. Rallied and rebounded $13 today. Carolyn Boroden, a technical analyst, is already watching this for two levels of support, from $321-324 and $313-315. A few days ago, the stock hit the first floor and sharply bounced, so floor support held--good. Watch this from Nov. 5-7 as a key window (now). Shares surged 4% today, so it's already bouncing. Nov. 11-13 is another time frame to watch. She will buy if 2 things happen: the stock tests its floor of support (it did), then a buy trigger happens, when the 8-day exponential moving average to cross above the 13-day exponential MA. However, if the stock breaks below support levels, sell. Also, this is not a great environment for fintech because Wall Street is swapping out and buying banks instead. She likes this stock as a nimble, temporary trade. However, he likes it as a longer hold.

COMMENT

THE LONG-AWAITED ALLIANCE BETWEEN THE BANKING SECTOR AND CRYPTOCURRENCIES

At the beginning of this year 2021, after so much denigration of Bitcoin and crypto-currencies in particular (like so many other financial players for that matter), Mastercard announced that it wanted to integrate crypto-currencies within its credit card payment network.

On October 25, the company announced a historic partnership with the cryptocurrency exchange Bakkt. This partnership will allow merchants, banks, and other fintechs to allow their consumers to trade crypto-currencies or issue credit cards supporting crypto-currencies.

Mastercard also plans to integrate cryptocurrencies into its loyalty products. This will allow rewards points to be spent on crypto rather than loyalty points.

With almost 3 billion Mastercards in the world, this is a huge consumer market that would be exposed to crypto-currencies very soon.

WEAK BUY
MA vs. V Visa has the European footprint, which has larger critical mass. But the European acquisition has given them some debt. You can buy MA, but you don't get the breadth of offering or as large an opportunity. They both have the same kind of risk.
