One of the more fragrant stocks I've ever sniffed!

Mastercard makes its money easily and automatically. Their capitol efficiency combined with high barriers of entry make it almost impossible for anyone other than Visa to compete.

As for long term growth, consider this- It is estimated that 85% of the world's transactions are still done in cash. That means there is a HUGE amount of growth left for the electronic payment industry. And barring the apocalypse, I don't see any reason why the world won't trend towards using less and less cash.

Another key point is that Mastercard is essentially a network operator (much like Visa). This allows them to have an outrageously high gross margin and impressive net profits. And conveniently, most electronic payments in the world go through either V or MA's networks. Electronic payments made via PayPal, Square, Venmo, and many others all use the "railroad tracks" built by Visa and Mastercard. Electronic payments will become more and more prevalent, and they will all use the infrastructure built by Visa and Mastercard.

Fresh fundamentals, high inside ownership, solid management, and a respected CEO. Smells good to me.
