What's looking more and more like a bear market is a bad time to be carrying as big a debt load as this stock's

Hugh debt probably unavoidable in this business but that only makes the sector look bad.

A well-known name is not, I imagine, as much an asset in a bad sector as in a good one. Agree or disagree?

In 18 of the past 20 years ROE has been at least 19%. Not once during that 20 year span was ROE below 10%.

Whether you average the past 5, 10, 15, or 20 years, the average ROE is greater than 23%.

Share count is shrinking, book equity is growing, and the dividend is nearly 50% higher now than just 3 years ago.

There is no wonder why Buffett loves this company so much. At 10x Pre-Tax earnings, this one will likely beat the market.

.................No country has survived a more than 50% Government circular money exchange system. The rapid break down will occur within the next 5 years.

Closed out my original pick. But I think that AXP will move up going forward. Especially as the economy begins to move up.

We'll see. No real money here, just a thought.

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.
