What are Wall Street analysts saying about Synchrony Financial stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Synchrony Financial stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Synchrony Financial’s shares have outperformed the industry in the last six months. The company is well positioned for long-term growth on the back of consistent increase in revenues driven by its rapidly rising interest income and inorganic growth strategies. Moreover, its CareCredit platform continued to perform well over past many quarters.  The company's fourth-quarter 2017 earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate but remained flat year over year.  The company has seen its Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2018 earnings being revised upward in the past 60 days. However, the company has been witnessing a steep rise in its expenses since 2013 that has been weighing on its bottom line. It also suffers from increasing allowance for loan losses that has been rising due to the rapid growth in its loan portfolio." (3/6/2018)
  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Capital Return, Potential Tax Cut Boost = Upside We are reiterating our Buy recommendation on Synchrony Financial (SYF) while raising our price target to $44 from $36 based on 12x our FY19E earnings per share of $3.70. We believe SYF offers investors an attractive story featuring loan growth and capital return that position it to expand both EPS and ROE, and that the company’s enhanced partnership with PayPal (PYPL, Buy, $81 PT) offered the latest demonstration of its capabilities and capacity versus its card-issuing peers. We also view SYF as well positioned to benefit from the growth of eCommerce given its partnerships with PYPL, Amazon (AMZN, Not Rated) and others and its ability to extend its online and mobile capabilities to traditional retail partners."
