I. Conservative Recommendation

MasterCard Inc. (MA) is a familiar name to all U.S. consumers through its brands that include MasterCard, Maestro and Cirrus. A holding in Alpha Algorithm, Mastercard is also favored by 11 top investment strategies.

Mastercard is steadily investing in technology to expand its market share all around the world. The electronic payments trend has it positioned for decades of market-beating growth to come. The company recently recorded 18% revenue growth and 24% earnings per share (EPS) growth. That’s a remarkable rate of growth for a company with a market cap of $163 billion.

Mastercard stock also has the wind at its back and scores 100% on all technical indicators I follow.

II. Aggressive Recommendation

Amazon.com (AMZN) is currently a holding in Alpha Algorithm.

This is the time of the year when Amazon traditionally gets more love from investors. The online retail giant is expected to account for a whopping 25% of all online sales in the U.S. during the holiday season. Throw in Amazon’s fast-growing cloud services business, and you have a company that has generated much larger profit margins than its retail side ever did.

Amazon scores 100% on all my short-, medium- and long-term technical indicators I follow.

Sincerely,

Nicholas Vardy
