MasterCard Has Attributes Buffett Loves, Ex-Daughter-in-Law Says

Mary Buffett, the former daughter- in-law of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A) Chairman Warren Buffett, said MasterCard (MA) Inc. is a company that has “all of the things that Warren loves.”

MasterCard, the world’s second-biggest payments network, has “a durable competitive advantage, it has high returns on equity, it’s carrying little or no long-term debt,” she told Bloomberg Television’s Betty Liu today on the “In the Loop” program today.

Todd Combs, hired by Warren Buffett to help manage investments at Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire, has been accumulating MasterCard shares. Mary Buffett, who was married to the billionaire’s son Peter, is the author of “The Warren Buffett Stock Portfolio.”
