American Express is growing its initiative to compete more with Visa and Mastercard in the small business area. It may have to cut its transaction fee which is already massive (3%+), but the company has spent lots of money to grow, and is financed at miniscule rates thanks to the current interest rates via the economy. With Bluebird and its checking account options, it will be better capitalized and could look into expanding into loans and other forms of credit rather than charge and credit cards. It's debt is high (around 3.1 on the Long term debt to equity ratio) but that doesn't mean it can't grow it's way out. It isn't the smallest player in the big 4, but it has a lot more room to grow than the other ones, and ranks highest on customer service.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

American Express has a unique business model with both a network and a credit card issuing business. However, it is usually evaluated by analysts with a focus on card issuer side of the business. This represents a mistake that often presents buying opportunities when card issuers are out of favor due to concerns with either credit write offs or consumer spending. In reality the network business (a closed loop for Amex) gives this company two huge advantages: an earnings buffer against consumer trends that is almost an "annuity" and a full view of card member buying habits. An exceptionally strong management team and iconic brand will consistently win with these advantages.

I like the credit industry and Amex caters to the high end so less defaults here and more spending. don't see this changing anytime soon.

A great company, endorsed by Warren Buffett. They truly believe in customer service, and are able to price themselves above their competitors due to their high net worth clients.
