The performance was supported by the company’s decent earnings surprise history. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings in two of the trailing four quarters. The company’s efforts to diversify its revenue sources by enhancing digital offerings and introducing new products will help bottom-line growth. Further, the company’s encouraging capital deployment activities reflect a strong balance sheet position.

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)
