Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Synchrony Financial stock:
  • 1. BTIG Research analysts commented, "We are raising our 2019 EPS estimates for Buy-rated Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. (CTO) ahead of CTO’s 2Q19 earnings after CTO closed on a number of dispositions (both of land and multi- tenanted buildings) in late 2Q19 in addition to executing a number of new acquisitions. Our 2Q19 EPS estimate is increasing from $0.27 to $2.04, while we are also raising our 2019 EPS estimate from $8.20 to $9.55; our 2020 EPS estimate is declining modestly from $5.25 to $5.13. CTO’s previously announced land sales pipeline represents ~60% of the company’s remaining land holdings under purchase and sale agreement (aggregating ~$87M), and ~68% is expected to close in 2019." (7/15/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Synchrony Financial’s shares have outperformed its industry year to date. It has witnessed its 2019 estimates move upward over the past 60 days. Its concerted efforts in forging alliances and effecting consolidations are likely to drive the shares going forward. It has been witnessing strong revenue growth since its inception in 2013 on the back of rising interest income. Moreover, its Retail Card platform has consistently performed well over the last several quarters. Its steady capital position also impresses. However, the company has been witnessing a steep rise in expenses since 2013, which has been weighing on its bottom line. The company has been taking up several organic and inorganic strategies with a view to expand which in turn, has resulted in higher marketing expenses and acquisitions-related costs. Its high allowance for loss remains another concern. Loss of Walmart continues to bother." (3/27/2019)
