In the face of geopolitical, economic and technological tensions, Mastercard Inc. (NYSE:MA) has two major tailwinds that continue to fuel the company and keep the stock price moving forward. These tailwinds are: the world continues to deviate away from cash in favour of digital forms of transactions, and a huge growth in global middle class population throughout the world.
Visa’s (NYSE:V) stock chart is almost boring to look at. Shares have been steadily climbing for several years now; there are little to no significant downtrends evident in the chart’s five-year view. And in 2018 thus far, V stock has gained over 22% — more than four times better than the broader market.
The first half of 2018 is already over, so it is time to look back at how our portfolio performed, the purchases we made and to check our income growth.

PayPal’s (PYPL) $2.2 billion acquisition of iZettle is its largest but the most calculated one. The aim is simple, to increase PayPal’s presence in physical outlets. iZettle’s card readers allow anyone to receive card payments, while its point of sale system manages payment processing, sales tracking, and product management. That’s right, instead of just trying to beat traditional card-payment processors in online platforms, PayPal will make the competition more relevant by playing both the online and in-store payment processing market, and it gets better along with the integration of sales and product management tools that’s essential for the small and medium businesses.

M&A activity has been big part of the global market for the past few years now, and that’s likely to continue. Tax reform has freed up more cash and made potential targets more accretive. The economy is humming along. And in a few key sectors — consumer goods and media come to mind — there’s an obvious logic behind consolidation.
