VISA -- they are the market leader in CC transactions by quite some distance. Trends are moving towards a cashless society (at least in the developed world) + they've made many acquisitions in the mobile payment space.A bit OT here, but why those two? Is it because of future cloud / gaming, and more efficient payment stuff?
Microsoft - yeah, the cloud (Azure) is my main reason. But they also have many, many diversified income streams.
