    DFS has one very big minus when compared to MA and V….they have exposure to the debt
    of the cardholder. MA and V are NOT the direct lenders, and therefore have far less exposure to
    bad debt/defaults.

    MA and V are card processors, COF, DFS and AXP are essentially banks, with little (if any) brick and mortar establishments. DFS and AXP are the only credit card companies to also have a card processor. MA and V are not comparable.
