Visa vs. Mastercard He's owned both for 10 years. Now, Visa is slightly cheaper, but neither are cheap. 24x earnings for both. But growth is also high in the high-teens. PEG ratio is 1.3 for both. You can't go wrong with either.

Visa vs. Mastercard She likes this space. They're both into e-commerce where there is a lot of growth to come. Visa bought Visa Europe a year ago and are Integrating it which will make Visa more international than Mastercard. These companies aren't trying to gain market share from each other; they're both growing from cash/cheque to online payments.

It's been on fire. His rule is not to own more than 5% of a single stock in his portfolio, so he recently trimmed back to 5%. It's reaching its old high and slightly overbought, probably due for a pullback. You can take profits, but otherwise hold.

It is a secular theme that goes beyond the business cycle. They are more focused on emerging markets, where the industry is growing faster than domestically. It does not matter if the business cycle slows down or not. (Analysts’ price target is $235.70)

Visa vs. Mastercard He loves this sector. Both are fine companies. They don't take credit risk (the associated banks do). Instead, they do payment transactions, and here Visa (1.9 trillion) dwarfs its competitors combined. Visa also has a bigger debit card business and are more international oriented than Mastercard; Visa has now absorbed Visa Europe, which used to be a different company. Europeans use cash more than credit, so there's great opportunity here.

There is still lots of room for penetration in the credit card space in terms of the consumer not using cash but using plastic. You have to look at it long term. He feels there is still more upside. It's up 30% this year. V-N has a larger market share and has not had the same year as MA-T. You could say you are buying V-N at a slightly less rich a valuation. You will do fine on both long term. He does not own V-N because the dividend is less than 1%.

Global secular trend over the next 10 - 20 years. Use of digital currency and electronic payments will continue to expand. The growth in E-commerce is undeniable. Last Tuesday they announced a $6 billion share buy back and boosted the dividend by 32%. Forward P/E is 27 with 29% growth. Good growth company. (Analysts’ price target is $233.14)

Visa vs. Mastercard? MC is sluggish in Europe. Visa is making deals in India, which MC doen't like. MC has a long relationship with PayPal. MC's earnings are up $1.70, but mostly due to tax cuts. Do half a position. If it doubles, don't buy more. Managing your cash is the most improtant think. He likes both stocks, but not these prices.

She likes this space--it's a play on e-commerce and in countries where cash and cheque dominate payments. Credit cards will continue to grow. She owns Visa, though MA has done better lately. Nothing wrong with buying either in this pullback. They were getting pricey vs. a few weeks ago. She prefers Visa because they brought in Visa Europe last year which will raise their international presence and introduce new products and grow the company.

This is a trend away from cash. Still some countries still use cash (i.e. Japan). They also created new services based on the data they collect with good margins. All analysts prefer this one vs VISA (V-N). Even as VISA (V-N) is cheaper on a multiple basis. (Analysts’ price target is $229.33)

Mastercard (MA-N ) vs. VISA (V-N). Owns Mastercard instead of VISA. But the charts look similar. All you do is jump in. With a long base, if you believe in the company, you’re not sure when it’s going to pop, but when it does, off it goes. VISA has made a new high, compared to the market, which has not.

Visa (V-N) or Mastercard (MA-N)? Likes the electronic payment space. Cash and cheques are still the predominant form of payment in many countries, so there’s lots of runway, even in developed markets. Bought Visa a couple of years ago and is happy to keep holding it. Benefits of buying Visa Europe will come through this year in terms of integration. There are opportunities for both companies in terms of market share -- no reason to switch from one to the other.

Visa (V-N) vs Mastercard (MA-N). Which would you buy? Visa is the largest, best player. Mastercard is more international. Visa just bought the European side which adds value. Both track well and perform similarly, but both trade higher than the banks, which could be risky in a volatile market. Both good long-term companies, because there is a move away from cash to electronic payments. Both trade at high multiples. Mastercard has developed technology more aggressively, but has been playing catch up on the international side.

When looking at names like this and Visa (V-N), the thesis is very straightforward. Spending around the world is growing, not just short term, but long-term when you look at developing countries. Those digital methods continue to take market share away from cash. There are going to be more people moving to digital payments and plastic, and away from cash. Both stocks are getting a little expensive, so keep an eye out for the mood of the general market. In this bull market continues, these names should benefit from that. However, when the bull market starts to wane a little, you probably want to take some profits off the table.

(A Top Pick Jan 24/17. Up 54%.) A classic Wide Moat company. The credit card space is dominated by MasterCard and Visa (V-N). Credit card penetration in places like Europe, Asia, Africa, South America is nothing like it is here. There is still a tremendous runway for them to be adding new customers. It’s the kind of company you can buy and literally go to sleep for 30 years and not worry about it. He would be indifferent whether you are in MasterCard or Visa.

V-N vs. MA-N.  They keep going up.  V-N is slightly better valuation than M-N and he prefers to by M-N when it is two or three multiple points between the two.  Generally speaking they are both great and have a huge runway ahead of them.  A lot of countries are still just scratching the surface.  He just owns V-N right now.

When the consumer is at risk, such as in an economic slowdown, it is this one that underperforms.  When the economy performs well and credit is building it does well.  He is cautious right now.  He thinks it is extended and is late cycle.  This is a payment processor and not a lender.  Non-payment risk goes to the underlying financial institutions.
