Artisan Select Equity Fund made the following comment about American Express Company (NYSE:AXP) in its Q3 2023 investor letter:

"American Express Company (NYSE:AXP) shares declined by 14%. Company results continued to be excellent, but shares were weak due to fears of a recession or a meaningful slowdown in the economy. Credit quality is normalizing after below-normal credit provision levels coming out of the pandemic. The company has an excellent brand, outstanding underwriting and a premium cardholder base that is the envy of the payments industry. It is well positioned to grow, and the current valuation reflects short-term fears over the direction of the economy, rather than the long-term upward trajectory in American Express’ earnings power."
