He prefers it to Visa, though both are fine. MA boasts more growth. Both dominate payments. Despite new, smart e-payment companies, customers still need a card like MA--cards won't go away soon. For MA, he forecasts 10-12% annual revenue growth for the next 2-3 years and strong free cash flow, growing earnings at 30x 2020's revenues. Chip away at this when you can, because this doesn't pullback much. (Analysts’ price target is $309.22)

You need to be in this space. He also owns a lot of Visa. But have pulled back recently due to momentum ETFs, and the markets shifted from momentum to value last month. The credit cards are in those ETFs. Visa and Mastercard has done very well for him, so now is a buying opportunity.

He will take profits on this; he's owned it for a long time. MA is a tech stock and seasonality is now into January. It's been consolidating lately, but he sees no breakdown. Not at all. You can take come profits during seasonality.

Payment processors are a long-term hold. Have become the market darlings. Rolled over in September with the rest. Tremendously overbought. A mean reversion to the 200-day moving average would be a better time to pick it up, probably over the next few weeks. September to February is the optimal time to hold.

You can buy this and crawl into a cave for 10 years then become wealthy. They have very high ROE. A tremendous moat around their business. It's really MA and Visa. Europe and developing countries invite a huge runway for growth.

6 month outlook? His work suggests these are at extremely high valuations. MA-N has 60% downside risk according to his models, trading at 40 times book value. He would stay away from both V-N and MA-N.

The trend is up and to the right. It broke against the 200 S&P and was falling more than the S&P. Until we break $262 there are no worries. You could buy today. This is a good spot to pick it up.

Right above the 100-day moving average. Part of the selloff into value. When you see these dips, it's a great time to buy. 17% growth rate. A tollbooth type of company.

He owns Visa, with a chart similar to MA. For MA it's been too easy for too long. It's low-vol, offers growth, boasts a wide moat, BUT there's beneath the surface investors will question valuations of the credit card companies. So, they might come down a little. But you're fine holding this for 25 years.

MA vs. Visa He owns neither, though they have performed incredibly well. Don't buy them now in this part of the cycle. He likes American Express for its much-lower valuation, and have performed well, too, but buy that only on a big pullback.

vs. Visa Pretty similar charts. MA is a big holding of his, and it recently hit an all-time high. Reduce at $267 and exit at $241. Short-term resistance at $283. This could be $300-400 next year. Buy the dips.

He owns Mastercard instead. As the world grows, electronic transactions will continue to grow. His investment has more than doubled since 2018. He would hold your nose and buy either Visa or Mastercard. The fundamentals are great, but recognize it is quite expensive here. The key is to know when to sell and take profit.

MA vs. V vs. AXP. Wouldn't touch Visa or Mastercard, because they're extremely expensive, unless they have a 50% pullback. But AXP is a whole lot cheaper on price to book. It's the only one with visible upside. But it's bang up against technical resistance at 3.5x book. Hasn't been able to get any further. Visa and Mastercard are a lot more profitable than AXP. AXP has more limited downside.

AmEx, Visa or Mastercard? They're all great. Visa and MC are pure-play payment processors vs. AmEx which is also the issuing bank. They play on electronic payments with people buying more and more online, but V and MC reaches a wider breadth of customers/users. AmEx still focuses on richer people. V and MC will always have a higher multiple because they're viewed as tech companies. They're all great holds for 5-10 years.
