People are using less and less cash and MA will get a huge share of those truncations. Adding to my position monthly.

Mastercard has now become the #1 card to hold, mainly because of smart advertising and a card for every card holder, from Frequent flyers, hotel , cash back and low interest cards there is an incentive for all.

MasterCard is a leader in the payment processing industry with its sole close competitor being Visa.

MA currently has 30% market share within the industry! To put market share in to perspective, you know know that, according to studies, over 75% of Americans currently have at least one credit card and nearly 600 million people have a debit card.

Profit margin for MA is at over 50%, meaning (in simple terms) that they get over 50 cents for each dollar of sales.

Company has zero credit risk as they are only involved in the processing of CC transactions with merchants. Hence, this is a company that makes a whole lot of money with very little risk.

Because of the above reasons, and several others, I feel this is a strong company worth looking in to.

Greater than 90 percent of the worlds transactions still occur in cash. Talk about an amazing growth opportunity over the next 5-10 years. This company is very well managed. MA has expanded operating margin each of the last 4 years (and Q1 as well). Profit margins are widening, revenue is growing a at a clip of 15 percent a year for the last 15 years and we are seeing 19 percent bottom line growth thanks to widening margins and stock buy backs. Next to no long term debt. Free cash flow is exploding higher year after year. This company is a lean cash cow with a lot of room to grow, and a fortress brand name on top of all that. Seriously, what is not to like about this company??

MasterCard has done an amazing job of expanding its network as well as increasing transactions. I think as the global trend toward electronic payments continues, it still has a long way to run.

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

-scalable business model with little cost associated with incremental users and revenue
-strong demand tailwind with most of the world still using cash as the primary source of payment
-network effect, network effect, network effect
-strong recent growth rates (profit and revenue), a trend I expect to continue
-favorable oligopolistic market structure
-legal and regulatory barriers to entry
-global presence with >50% of revenue generated overseas

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.
