What are analysts saying about Ally Financial stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ally Financial stock:

  • 1. Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "ALLY hosted a mid-earnings conference call and reported that weaker used car prices are influencing their lease yields and charge-offs: We reiterate our Outperform rating but lower our earnings estimates from $2.32 in '17 to $2.22 and from $2.70 in '18 to $2.55 due to lower auto prices." (3/22/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ally Financial’s shares outperformed the Zacks categorized Consumer Loan industry over the last six months. The company’s fourth-quarter 2016 adjusted earnings outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate, attributable to rise in revenues. However, this was partially offset by an increase in expenses and higher provisions for loan losses. Moreover, the company’s high debt levels may restrain its ability to procure additional funds for working capital, acquisitions or other purposes. Nonetheless, the company’s efforts to diversify its revenue sources by enhancing its digital offerings and introducing new products will help bottom-line growth. Also, the company’s encouraging capital deployment activities reflect a strong balance sheet position." (2/7/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "ALLY presented at a competitor conference and we are updating our model for 4Q16 and 2017 guidance provided within the presentation. Our FY16 EPS estimate declines from $2.17 to $2.07 and our FY17 EPS estimate declines from $2.48 to $2.24." (12/7/2016)
