    • Funny, I read something different.

      "MasterCard reduced the low end of its long-term net revenue guidance, forecasting a compound annual growth rate of 11% to 14% for 2013 through 2015, compared with a previous forecast of 12% to 14% for 2012 through 2013. Net revenue growth could be slightly below the new range in the early part of the new period but at the higher end of the range in later years, the company said in its SEC filing. It also extended existing forecasts for a minimum 50% annual operating margin and a compound annual growth rate for earnings per share of at least 20% for 2013 through 2015."

    • YTD performance is slightly less than Visa or Amex, so perhaps MA has a little bit more room to go up. MasterCard had Paypass (I still have my key fob!) years before anyone else was looking at mobile payment systems (at least from what I recall), so this experience should give them a leg up for mobile payments. Additionally open-sourcing the software development for mobile payment should really help create a great platform.
