Master Card - FAQ

What is the stock ticker for Master Card?

The stock ticker for Master Card is NYSE:MA.

Is Master Card a good stock to buy?

You need to consider your investment strategy and how NYSE:MA can fit in your portfolio.

The current dividend income score of 6/10 and dividend growth score of 10/10. Those 2 metrics together should help you decide the fit for your portfolio. Be it for income or for growth.

Is Master Card a Buy, Sell or Hold?

The Dividend Snapshot Opportunity Score of 64 out of 100.

The score reflects the strength of a buy signal but it does not show a sell signal if it's low. The higher the better.

A sell signal is more difficult as it often relies on the reason you bought the stock in the first place.

Use A Winning Investment Strategy

My portfolio is generating over 12% annual returns since 2009. It's not from the beginning of the year or from 2019, it's from 2009 !!! That's a consistent return which means using the rule of 72, I double my portfolio every 6 years.

My approach is simple but you need key data that I have cultivated with the Dividend Snapshot Screeners. No other investment services provide you with easy to understand data but also actionable data. No hidden magic.

In fact, I have tried all of the investment services for dividend investors like a crash test dummy of investment services. Just ask me, and you'll learn why there was nothing I could use out there and that's how the Dividend Snapshot Screeners were borned!
