    The shares of Mastercard Inc (NYSE: MA) have received a $448 price target from UBS. And UBS analyst Rayna Kumar had assumed coverage of MasterCard with a “Buy” rating.

    Kumar believes that the largest growth opportunities for Mastercard are in Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. And those opportunities — along with the return of cross-border travel demand — is driving Kumar’s above consensus view

    Mastercard & Visa hit a double bottom for the year. On Jan. 29 it hit bottom and then again on Monday Nov. 11. Both Mastercard and Visa hit double bottoms on the exact same day this year. Both increased yesterday on above average volume which confirms the bottoom was in. I was an original investor in the Visa's IPO on March 18, 2008 and held, and always bought on the dips. I also own Mastercard shares, which I bought approx. 11 years ago.
    The conversion to cash to plastic (digital payments) is still in it's infancy. Most networks (BNPL) et, all run on Visa and Mastercards networks........The BNPL will add more transactions on the Visa and Mastercard networks, thus increasing transactions and revenue. And most importantly, Mastercard has bought many small fintech companies over the last several years, to secure it's dominance.
    Peace and Cash to the masses.

    This has to be driven down on the recent news of Powell getting another term. Keeping interest rates low will affect the bottom line of CC companies. But MA/V are going nowhere. Everyone uses them and we are approaching the Holidays. Just ride it out for now.

    consider how investors are reacting today: They're selling off Visa and Mastercard shares, two of the companies most favorably positioned to benefit if consumers once again retreat to their keyboards to shop online with credit cards rather than go out to physical stores where they might be tempted to -- horrors! -- pay for their purchases with cash money. https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/why-visa-and-mastercard-stocks-dropped-today

    Oh NO! CNBC about to talk about the payment sector, they can't stand seeing todays bounce so of course time to through the proverbial "wet rag" on the stocks.
    Lets see what they say but the teaser said "struggling payment sector while the market reach new highs".

    MA stock has been trading at odds with the strength of its holiday season business — that’s projected to boom with the return of record travel and hospitality industries — beginning with this week’s Thanksgiving holiday!💪📈🚀
    — Buy now and accumulate employing a “classic-selective contrarian investing strategy” for HUGE gains!🤔💰

    I have been a share holder of Mastercard for 12 years, prior to that I owned Visa. Although I am not a chart expert, I can clearly see that Mastercard has bottomed today. If you look at it's one year chart, it did completed a double bottom (Jan. 29/2021 and today).
    It bounced up on strong volume, time to buy more shares.
    In January when Mastercard reports spetacular earnings on Jan. 26 with an annual sharebuy back program, which they impliment ever year.....Mastercard will be up significantly to where it is today.
    Buy with both hands, Mastercard is a growth company.

    The bearish thesis has some merit but lets be real, what's going to happen is V/MC are just going to buy out the competition.

    I find it remarkable that a 'spat' where MC gains market share somehow causes MC to drop as far as it has in the last few days.

    Both companies need to adjust to the new world of technology, which they will do.. and they will find a way to maintain something near the same profit margins.

    My friends, I agree MA is a great company. That said, there are two things to consider. Fundamentals tell you what to buy; technicals tell you when to buy. Right now, technicals couldn't be worse. Most managers are way behind their benchmarks going into year end. If it ain't going up into year end, it's toast. MA is a VERY heavy hedge overweight. Today, the S&P was down 0.3%, MA was down 5.4%. For managers hoping to close their deficit versus their benchmark (as most are) by year end, being overweight MA (as most were) only makes matters worse (and with leverage it's even worse). MA is a source of funds for buying something that provides alpha into year end. I'm long since $125, so taxes keep me holding. If I had a loss, I'd sell. Most of all, I wouldn't buy til the payment stocks bottom and rebound. If the S&P drops 1-2% in the short term, MA could hit $275-300. Catching a falling knife is a dangerous proposition.

    MA is on sale in a temporary fog of investors confusion —- don’t waste this opportunity to buy into the bargain during these moments of FEAR and “behavior contagion”!🤔☝️👌
