MA has an A for financial health and a PEG less than 1 on Morningstar, so it's one of my long picks.

Nice pullback for this long-term winner, the moat around the duopoly of MasterCard and Visa is enormous, the room for growth internationally is also enormous, no debt, high margin business, might be a little pricey but I'd call it a good company at a fair price with a lot of room still left to run. Outperform.

Oligopoly in payment industry.
Growth in internet use and e-business, results in growth in usage of credit cards in online purchases.

This company is in an oligopolistic industry and is best poised among its competitors to take advantage of the movement away from paper and metal money toward electronic purchases and card swipes. Moreover, this company has demonstrated efforts to take advantage of any form of mobile payment system or ability it can get its hands on.

These innovations and acquisitions show a long-term focus in line with current trends and demonstrate foresight into the payment industry. While it can't be determined if these initial investments will pay off in the long term, the company's intent is clear and I agree with it. Adding to that, Mastercard has no debt, it]'s sitting on a cash pile, and it's shown a willingness to use it to be the leader in electronic and mobile payment methods, and you have a company with short term growth and long term domination.

I'm in it for the long haul and choose MA over V because of greater margins and growth potential.

No debt, and the cash they're swimming in is mainly used for stock repurchases. Also, there's a large percentage of the globe still using cash, so the credit card industry in general has a lot of room to grow.
