Two near-term catalysts after its recent drubbing... Its Investor Day on 3/11 & CCAR stress test should result in increased capital payout!

The loss of co-branding with Costco will have a significant impact on the valuation level provided by the market. Despite this significant loss, AXP still trades at a premium to its five year average PEG.

American Express is the leader when it comes to credit cards used by wealthy clients ... AXP is THE card of the 1%. Mr. Chenault knows what he's doing when he says that their relationships with Costco and jetBlue don't make economic sense for the company or their shareholders.

There is lots of concern surrounding American Express right now: (1) growth is slowing, (2) it has recently lost some co-branded cards (most notably Costco), (3) it is facing increased competition for high net worth consumers from Barclays and JP Morgan Chase, and (4) in response it is trying to attract less affluent card holders with its Bluebird card (which may damage its luxury brand). That's a lot to be worried about. But, I continue to believe that AXP is an above average company with smart leadership and troves of spending data (that it has not fully put to use) so I think it deserves to trade at an above-average multiple. That is not the case today. According to CapIQ it is trading at only about 15x on both a trailing and forward earnings basis.

Costco just dropped them after a 16-year partnership because AMEX's costs are too high. Big loss of business being after Costco has doubled their revenues over the past decade. Analyst have already began to drop their estimates for AMEX and believe that this will negatively impact AMEX for the next 12-18 months. Millions of customers who are used to using their AMEX cards at Costco will have use other forms of payment, hurting AMEX's bottom line

Costco deciding to drop Amex from payment options affects the stock short term, but in the coming I set a price target of ($83-$84, which is close to the MA(200) of $83.12 as of close of the market Friday. This is a short term dip that will be rectified in the weeks to come. Tuesday into Wednesday we should start to see the stock recover,

AXP is trading at its 52 week low. The fall out from Costco and an unfavorable earnings report have beat Amex up. However, its a strong company, with a reasonable P/E. They will rebound.

Price weakness following Costco partnership will end. I expect AMEX to continue with strong earnings and reward shareholders with buybacks and dividends.

Will probably suffer near term as it recovers from the Costco situation, but remains a strong pick in the long term.

Their customer service is unparalleled, and consumers with the most spending power will continue to prefer the AmEx experience.

In 18 of the past 20 years ROE has been at least 19%. Not once during that 20 year span was ROE below 10%.

Whether you average the past 5, 10, 15, or 20 years, the average ROE is greater than 23%.

Share count is shrinking, book equity is growing, and the dividend is nearly 50% higher now than just 3 years ago.

There is no wonder why Buffett loves this company so much. At 10x Pre-Tax earnings, this one will likely beat the market.
