This stock receives scant attention on the board, certainly as of recent date. The big picture, isn't this the time to buy a major credit card company when credit is tighter, one imagines that over time credit will ease making this a more attractive investment. Unless legislation prevents it, this issuer is inflation resilient as it will increase rates along the way. It seems to trade at an attractive valuation relative to Visa and seems to outperform on ROA and ROI and one would think that the trailing sales growth is low compared to the next five years. I am interested in any thinking why MA should be avoided or why V garners an extra star on CAPS.
