Following along with Warren Buffett and what his team at Berkshire Hathaway trade in has been a fairly strong investment strategy, as the holding company's track record speaks for itself. Given the holiday shopping season now well underway, the answer should be pretty clear: credit card companies. In Berkshire's portfolio, the company owns three of the four major U.S. credit card companies: American Express (NYSE: AXP), Visa (NYSE: V), and Mastercard (NYSE: MA).
The Nasdaq Composite is still 12% below its all-time high, which means bargains abound for opportunistic investors.
In the most recent trading session, MasterCard (MA) closed at $413.15, indicating a +0.67% shift from the previous trading day.
