But, it raised the price objective to $30 from $28. Synchrony Financial reported second-quarter GAAP EPS of $0.58, mostly in line with Bank of America's $0.57 estimate and nicely above the $0.55 consensus. The company's second quarter saw strong loan growth, lower RSAs and better-than-expected OpEx offset by the higher provision. Synchrony Financial also witnessed high-single-digit year-over-year purchase volume and average active accounts growth. Management is confident that it can continue to deliver very healthy growth given new partnerships and better engagement.
