Well, getting added to Dow is quite a feather in the cap, Visa. In fact, I bet they have been high-fiving each other over there in San Francisco at Visa headquarters. Visa is a stock that I currently own in my portfolio as it has the performance that I like, the valuation I require, and a healthy stock chart. You know sometimes they say that becoming a DJIA member is a curse (Cisco and Microsoft haven't done so well since they were added), so, as always, I will continue to monitor Visa's performance, valuation and stock chart via my Best Stocks Now! App. After all, who knows -- maybe I'll have to get rid of it one day now that it has been added to the DJIA!
