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.

He owns Visa, though he loves both names. Mastercard's ROE is a bit higher and the company is a little smaller than Visa, but he finds both are excellent companies.

Owns Mastercard instead of Visa, but the story is the same. They both dominate credit cards worldwide. As we move into e-payments, both are prepared. Both will continue to move up. As for blockchain, they may get involved as an application.

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.

Can't fault their chart. He's leery of the larger market, though. He would not chase it.

Sold some recently because it was too overbought. It might pull back further, but its long term trendline is still good. He suggests looking at the stock at about $160. Don’t buy the stock when it is falling. Buy after it stops falling and starts moving back to resume its uptrend.

The chart is very bullish, but the RSI is very high. Historically for this company, when the RSI reaches high levels, it usually corrects lower. His advice would be to trim a little.

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.
