    First, if someone has high net-worth and wishes to invest-and-forget and sleep soundly knowing assets are well-positioned for the very long term, perhaps high returns are more safely and reliably expected with, for example AAPL and/or MSFT.

    However, I've analyzed MA by doing the following:

    1. Bring up the MA chart, full screen
    2. Have the time span be 2 years
    3. Go to the indicators and bring up the "Williams %R" using the default settings, i.e., a 14-day period, -20 indicating overbought and -80 indicating oversold.
    3a. Note: I use the Williams %R value to inform me of an entry point to buy stock, provided the company is financially healthy, has a competitive business model, has a well-recognized and well-respected brand.
    4. Notice MA's Williams %R was about -98, i.e., extremely oversold, on 03SEPT. Please also note MA's William %R has been this oversold on very few occasions in the past 2 years...and each time it has recovered fairly well.
    5. Finally, please see MA's price peaks on, or about, 4/29/2021 & 7/29/2021, followed by the price declines in-between. I believe this may be due to stock traders taking profits when MA reports healthy earnings, then buying back-in between MA's earning periods. The next MA earning report is on, or about 10/28 or 29/2021.

    My hypothesis is that MA will increase [overall] from here as the next earnings date approaches.

    I respectfully ask for your thoughts.

    Major insider selling ever since stellar earnings report. Obviously they know something.

    While there isn't any major news today, it's worth noting that there has been some concerning data to emerge about the BNPL space as a whole. One study released last week found that one-third of U.S. consumers who used a BNPL service had fallen behind on at least one payment. A separate study found that about 10% of BNPL consumers in the U.K. were facing collection activity.

    To be clear, BNPL continues to be a red-hot growth industry for now and there's nothing in Affirm's latest earnings results to indicate that any consumer activity is a problem for the business. But these trends are certainly worth monitoring as the industry grows.

    The inflation moderation numbers earlier today is highly favorable to MA & V over the near and long term!πŸ€”πŸ‘πŸ“ˆ

    48 PE ratio. So basically a 2% return. So overvalued. This should be a 25-30 PE stock.

    Markets continue to be fixated on the delta bug, as fear thereof is fueled by the media. BUT anyone following the daily case-count numbers can see that the "surge" is fading rapidly. The media chooses not to focus on that, but ultimately it will have to be broadly acknowledged. At that point if not sooner, watch MA and V zoom.

    Big runs up, big runs down. This is how this stock trades. I've seen it weather much worse this past year. I've stuck with it, taken profits where it made sense. Every long term investor should have either V or MA as part of their portfolio. This gets back to 400 in the next 60 days.
  • D
    trading below 200 day moving average??? what to do is the question???
  • K
    Could be wrong but down 10% in a month with no news, a month or so before all the bid spending holidays sounds like a buying opportunity here. I’m in and will average down if needed. GLTA

    Goldman Sachs says MA is one of 9 most popular stocks among hedge funds along with V!!! Long term will be amazing!!
  • P
    MA is still trading in the bargain zone territory for a rapidly evolving global juggernaut global business β€”that’s growing stronger with recent brilliant strategic Mgmt actions to bolster and deliver more growth!
    *** MA has become so much more compelling business, and investment!πŸ€”πŸ“ˆβ˜οΈ

    I started investing in stocks 3 years ago. MA was one of the first companies I bought. I continued buying, and it is one of my bigger holdings. It did great for the first year and a half. But if we look at the chart, it is at basically the same price it was before the pandemic hit. 18 months with no increase. While most of my other stocks have made huge gains, or at least solid gains. Can someone tell me why?
  • S
    You always have to buy MA when it dips this much. Its always been a great buy!
  • P
    MA trading in oversold territory and presents a nice opportunity for MA longs with the ability and conviction to add at these bargain levels!πŸ€”πŸ’ͺπŸ––

    most of the fin stocks yesterday had a sizable drop, but the MasterCard Foundation just keeps selling. No good

    MasterCard margins have been flat for years, the execs need to improve that for the stock price to grow rapidly.
  • D
    The amount of bears commenting in here convinced me to buy more.

    This goes to the new or recent shareholders of both $V and $MA. Just be patient, last year these two stocks were slow but steady for the months of Aug, Sept and Oct. Once you get passed those you'll be glad that you held. I've gone through this same scenario last year and held strong because I believe in both companies. Never selling these two stocks! Long term investment. I'm just hoping they split shares so I can accumulate more. GLTA

    This is a long term forever stock!! You never sell it!! It’ll go up year over year. Just a down time but will come back stronger than ever. 100% no doubt. Should have a solid few months remaining with holidays approaching. May the longs be with you!!
