As the economy recovers, credit card companies will do well. Over the past year, it has been quite sideways but as well as up and down. He would suggest looking at Discover Financial Services (DFS-N), which ranks very high in his model with a much better earning profile and earnings momentum..

Just a transaction company so no credit risks involved. Sold off on the financial regulation bill that was passing in the US but have come back. Can be volatile but will do well in an up market. Expect them to grow their bottom line by 20% over the next 3-5 years.

Based on discretionary purchases. You would expect this stock to do well when discretionary does well, but instead you are seeing lower highs and lower bottoms. He would look for it to pull back from here.

Regulatory issues have knocked the stock down but expect to easily see the old highs in the next 6 months. Great company with lots of growth. Company is targeting 15%-20% earnings growth. Trades at 14-15 times next year's earnings growth.

US government has an interim bank charge so when they charge merchants, fees will be limited. Stock is down and trading in a trading range because of this. Real story is transformation of global payments and they predict 900 million credit cards in China in the next 7 years.

Credit card companies have been extremely weak recently primarily due to US regulatory changes regarding fees. This one gives you more emerging market non-US growth profile. Will be buying back shares.

Were concerns about FinReg and fees that car companies were going to be able to charge so it sold off and hasn't recovered since. Trading at 14.5-15 times earnings. Still lots of global growth for this company.

Would buy over Visa (V-N) although both are good companies. Both came down in price because of the Financial Regulation bill that is now in front of Congress that creates questions on interchange fees. Thinks this has been over done.

Came down pretty hard in the last month or so on rumours of changes to interchange fees that are charged. Regulations have since been softened up. Trades at a very reasonable multiple. Prefers over Visa (V-N). A hair less growth but better valuation by 2 points.

Trades at about 14X next year's earnings. New US financial regulation bill could possibly lead to lower use of credit/debit cards. Street reaction has been a little strong. Has less exposure to the debit card than Visa (V-N).

Stock dropped because of concerns on proposed changes on debit card fees. This was more perception than reality because they don't participate in the debit card fee itself.

MasterCard (MC-N) or Visa (V-N)? Both companies are well run. The risk would be the credit situation in the US and it might spill over with the new European crisis. When the stocks hit their lows in 2008-2009 that was a great buying opportunity. They have both been on a fantastic run and not sure you'll make much money buying at its current level.

(A Top Pick March 11/09. Up 69.1% excluding dividends.) Competes very well against Visa (V-N), its major competitor.

Very good moneymaking machine. Riding along the 50-day moving average and not falling below it. You could also look at Capital One Financial (COF-N) or American Express (AXP-N).
