Or, to paraphrase American political...

30 Oct 2014 @ 19:58
Both MasterCard (NYSE:MA) and Visa (NYSE:V), the world’s largest processor of debit and credit card payments, released their quarterly earnings reports in the last 48 hours.

28 Sep 2014 @ 23:55
The chatter has come to a fever pitch as it appears that Sir Richard Branson will be taking Virgin Money public on the London Stock Exchange in the very near future.

The problem is that the app announcement was not the only announcement about Monitise (LSE:MONI) today. The app announcement was good, but not nearly good enough to overcome the announcement that followed...
