Mastercard (MA) Dividend Stock Analysis 2018
Mastercard (MA) has been one of the best investments since its IPO in 2006.  If you purchased shares at the IPO for a split-adjusted $4.60 per share, the investment would have grown over 4,000% or 34%+ per year.  Mastercard the "stock" has performed wonderfully and as you'll see below Mastercard the "business" has been excellent as well.

Mastercard's share price has declined nearly 17% from its peak on October 1st through this past Friday.  That kind of decline gets my attention especially since it wasn't limited to just Mastercard itself, rather it was, for the most part, the entire market seeing big declines.
