Year-to-date, the company's stock is up around 46%.
So, how has the company been able to be so successful?
Jim Cramer broke it down for members of his Action Alerts PLUS investing club during his exclusive members-only monthly club call in July.
Here's what Cramer had to say about Mastercard.
"On the surface, MasterCard stock looks more expensive than a Visa (V) - Get Visa Inc. Report . It sells for 36 times earnings versus 34 times earnings for Visa but its five-year compound annual growth record is 26% versus 20% for Visa. That's what we're looking for. That's what makes it cheaper. The growth rate versus the PE plus one adjusted currency neutral scale. MasterCard has given you 41% year over year growth. Now people just so you understand the significance, you have got a company that is a $282 billion company with 40% year over year growth. I don't know if you can beat that. It's obviously got a huge total adjustable market. Again, the word TAM. It is scaling and it has a terrific MOT," explained Cramer.
And that secret sauce?
Cramer said that the secret sauce lies within Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga.
