Did you see it happen? Have you noticed the most important trend in finance this year? Most folks haven't. They have no idea what's going on… They completely missed this enormous shift. They have no idea that for the first time in years, the U.S. dollar is crashing. This is an enormous change from the past few years. And history tells us that the losses will likely continue… The U.S. dollar was a major story in recent years. The rally in the U.S. dollar, that is. The buck rose 40%-plus from early 2011 to the end of 2016. It was a massive uptrend with huge implications for the global economy. But 2017 has seen a huge reversal.

Visas not alone when it comes to being a dividend miser. Rival MasterCard Inc (MA) is every bit as bad.
MasterCards dividend payout ratio is an extremely low 21%, and its dividend yield is a pitiful 0.8%. I suppose that might be competitive with a savings account these days. But its less than half the dividend yield of the S&P 500, and theres just no excuse for that.
