I see a lot of people complain about the guy and I do not rely on him...but... looking at his analysis on MA (see below) almost a year ago and seeig the downside based on his statements maybe I should reconsider. I wonder of anyone has done an analysis on his perfomance overall?
Cramer stays behind MasterCard (MA) Posted Nov 10th 2006 6:21PM by Jon Ogg Filed under: After the bell, Analyst reports, MasterCard Inc'A' (MA)
Cramer then said there are some other stocks that can make you 50% gains while the rest of your stocks languish. Cramer believes that MasterCard (MA) is another potential situation like that. It came public around $40 in MAY and has doubled. Cramer said he didn't care and he thinks it is still a sustainable moving stock.
Cramer thinks MasterCard has a lot of upside and the IPO was priced way too low because it came right after Vonage (VG) IPO and Wall Street was desperate not to burn investors with a poor IPO pricing. Cramer said it should have come public at $60 or maybe even $70. He thinks this is an irreplaceable franchise because of its global payment network. He also like demutualizations because they have a history of being inefficient but after the come public they have to start cleaning up and trying to grow.
MA already has a $12 billion market cap, which compared to American Express's (AXP) $71 Billion market cap. MA closed up 1.1% at $89.20 in normal trading and then traded up another 2.5% to $91.50 in after-hours prints immediately after the Cramer pump.
At $6.00 for 2008 and a 20-25 multiple, Cramer thinks this can go to $150.00 down the road.
