What are analysts saying about American Express Company stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about American Express Company stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "American Express’ shares have outpaced the Zacks categorized Miscellaneous Services industry in the last one year. The company’s fourth-quarter 2016 adjusted earnings per share (EPS) missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate.  Results were mainly affected by higher provisions, partially offset by higher adjusted revenues.  However, the company expects EPS for 2017 in the range of $5.60–$5.80. This reflects an increase from its prior guidance of at least $5.60 per share. We remain optimistic as the company remains well poised for growth on the back of its solid market position, strength in card business and significant opportunities from the secular shift toward electronic payments. American Express, however, continues to witness mounting loan loss provisions. Moreover, a strong U.S. dollar, loss of Costco as a client and intense competition remain major near-term concerns." (1/24/2017)

  • Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We note that the 12.3% y/y growth rate is a deceleration from last month’s 13.8% growth rate by 151 bps, and the only other m/m deceleration in balance growth YTD was in March (by 25 bps to 11.6% y/y growth). This deceleration could be attributable at least in part to success by Citi, post its launch of the Costco card, in attracting spend from former Amex-Costco cardholders. Amex shows strong credit quality with stable adjusted delinquencies of 1.0% and stable adj loss rates of 1.4%. U.S. Small Business ended the month with $8.8Bn loans, growing 15.9% y/y, a 35 bps acceleration from last month’s rate. Adjusted net losses were 1.4% (up 20 bps m/m). Dollar net losses were $11.7MM in the month, up 8% from July. 30+ day delinquencies were stable at 1.0%. Bottom Line: USCS and U.S. Small Business are both growing rapidly and credit also appears stable. Earlier we wrote that about half of the incremental growth seen in Amex’s Consumer card loans was a result of excluding slower-growing Costco card balances, while winning over former Costco cardholders with attractive sign-up cash bonuses resulted in acceleration. Now it appears that competitive factors are eroding the acceleration seen in the first half of 2016 as spending and balances shift to other attractive cards, such as the Citi Costco card."
