GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Mastercard Inc

Jeff Auxier Comments on Mastercard - May 07, 2018

Mastercard (NYSE:MA) ended their fiscal year with fourth quarter sales up 20% to $3.31B benefiting from strong holiday spending. The continued focus on international growth opportunities has paid off as there are now three times as many cards outstanding worldwide than in US markets. Vocalink, a payment system headquartered in the UK, and Oltio, a mobile payments and banking technology company out of South Africa, along with other acquisitions contributed 3% to overall sales growth in the quarter.

Ruane Cunniff Comments on Mastercard - Mar 06, 2018

Mastercard (NYSE:MA) produced yet another strong set of financial results in 2017 with top line and earnings per share growth up by mid-teens for the year.The company’s business model remains very attractive, with powerful trends driving ever-increasing adoption of the electronic payments that Mastercard enables. We believe Mastercard’s competitive position remains very promising over the short to intermediate term. Longer term, we are trying to keep our antennae attuned to potentially disruptive technological threats. Meanwhile, Mastercard’s many virtues are as well appreciated as ever by the stock market and the company’s valuation feels both full and fair.

Weitz Funds Comments on Mastercard - Nov 11, 2016

Mastercard (NYSE:MA) operates the world’s second-largest payment network and one of the best known global brands. During the quarter, shares rose as investors applauded continued payment volume growth and a slightly improved economic global outlook. Mastercard is among the most attractive businesses we own. Its network is well entrenched within the plumbing of payment systems across the globe. The transition from cash to digital forms of payment provide growth opportunities, while the core business produces healthy doses of excess cash flow with modest reinvestment requirements.

Tom Russo Comments on MasterCard - Sep 26, 2016

MasterCard (NYSE:MA) shares have suffered during the first half of 2016 in part as a reaction against all the global disruption ongoing in financial markets and global political corridors. Terrorist bombings throughout Europe slow travel and slow cross-border transactions, the growth of which had over the past decades fueled growth in interconnect revenues. Decline in consumer confidence also pressures revenues and growth in gross dollar volumes billed.



Finally, MasterCard and other domestic payment networks suffer from concern over the overturning of an agreed settlement with retailers over alleged anticompetitive pricing activities. The repeal of the settlement in the United States coupled with a judicial loss in the United Kingdom in a law suit alleging anticompetitive pricing has triggered concerns over regulatory and legal environment, now weighing on MasterCard’s share price.



I believe that current turbulence impacting MasterCard’s share price will abate as travel patterns return, consumer confidence restores, and payment networks reach reasonable ways in which to be paid for the benefits that payment systems offer merchants. The growth of mobile platforms will only further drive the migration globally from cash payment (cash payments represent currently over 80 percent of commerce throughout the world beyond the United States) to digital payment. MasterCard has massive capacity to reinvest mature industry cash flows to exploit new marketing opportunities for using credit, for increased consumer spending, for assisting government distribution of social benefits in secure manner, etc.



From Tom Russo (Trades, Portfolio)'s Semper Vic Partners second quarter 2016 shareholder letter.

Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) and Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio) are each a legend in their own right, although they achieved that status through approaches with distinctively different characteristics. Buffett famously seeks quality businesses at fair prices, forsaking mediocre businesses at low prices years ago. Klarman has never given up his deep value style of investing, often seeking “cigar butts,” or companies that may be on their last leg but could pull through. Perhaps consequently, their portfolios overlap on only one company: Synchrony Financial (NYSE:SYF). Read more...
