Here's how we're looking at MasterCard stock today.

MasterCard (MA 0.40%) has delivered fortunes to its investors, rising more than 1,400% since its IPO in 2006. But is MasterCard still a buy today, even at the price of about nearly $700 per share?

In this video, Motley Fool analysts Joe Tenebruso and Eric Bleeker discuss a massive global opportunity that lies ahead for MasterCard. And they offer up two other great businesses that investors may wish to consider as additional ways to profit from the cash-to-plastic megatrend.
