(Market Call Minute.) Consumer spending in the US was flat in December, which was bad for the credit card companies. People are still reducing their debt and you are not going to see rate increases in consumer spending. Not a lot of growth in the card companies.

Likes the payment processing area. Tons of recurring revenue, 60% operating margin, dividend increases, buybacks. Stock has run up 40% over the last 12 months. Will be a good, long-term hold. All they really good value has been taken last year.

Fantastic chart that goes from lower left to upper right with relatively good growth and return on assets, return on equity. Low payout ratio for dividend. Dividend has a decent opportunity to grow.

As long as they execute on a fundamental basis you hold on to it. If the price runs away on it, you sell, but this has not happened. There are issues about Europe.

The only theme that he likes in the financials is the card issuers. The whole group looks pretty good. Their 2 incomes are from the fees they get from banks and the spread you pay on the interest on your balance. This is a global growth story.

Switched into this from MasterCard because of better growth profile and because amendment was introduced to limit fee on debit cards.

It is so expensive from a valuation perspective, but you can’t deny the consistency of the model. He is a value player and it is hard to engage in this because of the price. It’s still a great company. Don’t add to it.

Historically traded at a premium multiple to MasterCard (MA-N) but now trades at a discount. Both are looking at 18%-19% growth in earnings. Trading at around 16X next year's earnings. Lots of growth potential.

Has been doing quite well. It’s hard to fight success. It is a business that is swamped with product. You pay your money and take your chances.

Makes money on transactions, not interest rates. People worry transactions will decline if there is a recession. He thinks fear is a little over done.
