While the banks in general have languished, Visa and Mastercard (MA) have continued to show strong operating results and enjoy powerful networks in the face of an increasingly competitive payment space.

Spring 2019 Market Commentary

Favorable economic trends in the US continued in the first quarter. Consumer spending comprises over two thirds of the US economy. Services are also big, contributing over 68% of US GDP and over 83% of private employment (Moody’s). Lower oil prices, declining borrowing costs, regulatory relief and increasing wages have provided a positive backdrop. Credit spreads are still very tight despite the accelerating growth in covenant-lite corporate debt and leveraged loans. The Fed made a material reversal at year-end and lower interest rates have fueled gains for both stocks and bonds. Unprecedented technological innovation is driving

Mastercard Inc. (NYSE:MA)

Despite strong performance with currency neutral revenue growth of 17% and earnings growth of 36%, Mastercard has fallen from its peak in the fall of 2018 due to macroeconomic concerns. Mastercard has done a great job in fending off the competition in the digital payments space while taking advantage of the digital trends away from cash payments.

The firm says an economic recession will arrive in 2020, so it is time to increase holdings of high-quality stocks

CNBC reported Monday that Goldman Sachs analyst David Kostin has recommended investors increase their portfolio defensiveness through investments in high-quality stocks, as many clients of the American bank are fearing that a U.S. economic recession will arrive in 2020.

Therefore, Goldman Sachs suggested investors increase their positions in companies with strong balance sheets, high returns on equity and consistent cash flow. The firm also recommended readdressing investing strategies toward those sectors that tend to outperform when economic growth slows down, which are communication services and utilities.

Regarding individual stocks that investors should acquire to enhance defensiveness, the bank major

See how using a put strategy can make sense for investors interested in MasterCard today

No matter how much they like the company or its sector, many investors are willing to wait for their price to be achieved before buying shares. Instead of waiting for their target price, some investors may be inclined to use a cash secured put income strategy to acquire shares at a more attractive price.

Per theoptionsguide.com, a stock option is a contract between two parties in which the stock option buyer purchases the right, but not the obligation, to buy 100 shares
