Early 2019 I bought heavily in Shopify. It’s a quality stock for keeps, have a look.

Didn't have the courtesy to share on the 2019 Share Picks? Some returns YTD, can they continue that momentum into the New Year.

For me, a few safe bets for the year ahead. I believe Mastercard and Visa will continue to grow this year as the world continues to move from cash to card. I only bought into both in the past couple of months. Delayed the trigger for ages and finally bought in, the growth over the past couple of years has been relentless.

Facebook will continue to dominate social media advertising revenue so I can the stock continuing its recent upswing.

My apologies. This is the first year I’ve started seriously investing.

Yep Visa/MasterCard is a solid pick. In financials, I’ve invested (small) in Square and Stone Co.

Edit - I did https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/show...p?t=2057977740

Really, take a look at the level of private credit and the the general consensus that personal credit is likely to be the next source of a financial crisis. How are either of those companies set up to take the hit?

These companies are facilitators. Visa doesn't directly lend money to consumers through its branded credit or debit cards. The money being borrowed comes from the financial institution that actually issues the card, such as JPMorgan Chase or Capital One.

You think the brands will survive without the funding..... they need a plan...

And if you think the brands are worth it, then buy when they get hit and everyone else wants out.

Yes they’ll survive, they did during the last Financial Crisis. They’re financially strong..

As for the future - e-commerce had the potential to drive explosive growth for the company.
