This is on a pullback. This company has an impressive performance v. S&P on the 5 year chart. Also, as others have said, they provide great customer service. When given a choice, it's the only card I use.

Why you ask? Here's why, I say: I have owned and used credit cards for the past 30+ years. Discover is far and away the most inexpensive, user-friendly, dependable, and rewarding card in my wallet. It beats out Amex, visa, M/C, and all the others. Extrapolating my experience, it stands to reason that a company that provides superior satisfaction to its customers will prosper over time. Plus, the payout ratio on their dividend is quite low, implying room to grow the dividend. Happy Investing!

Fewer legacy costs than big banks offering cards means higher ROI than competitors. One of the two top card franchises as a recognizable brand.

Discover is somewhat of a sleeper bank that is growing at the ground level among consumers. It consistently scores well for customer satisfaction and is well positioned for macro-level trends. Millennials love them and will be money makers for years to come.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

***** HOLD ****

I bought this in 2010 around 25 but sold, I regret it.

1) P/E - 10.29 and dividend 1.5%
2) Treating this as parallel to Visa. There activity increased during this 2 year period and believe it will continue to fare better - by cash backs, promotions and transfers.

3) Worried about there Cash Flow decrease I guess this is due to increase in divvy.

Long term play 5 -10 years. Apart from WFC this financial should be allocated in Financial portfolio's (as Large Cap Growth)

Operating Margin over 59% on 8.9million by anyone's standards is excellent and an anticpated growth of 8% annually. The battle for credit card domination continues. I like Discover.

Great room for growth, a lending arm, and deals with online payment providers will set it apart from its competitors.

Discover has been in the business of credit cards for around 25 years now. Despite being one of the smaller competitors (in comparison to Visa and MasterCard), Discover seems to have a lot going for it. They have fantastic customer loyalty and their new Discover IT card is, to say the least, a great deal! Discover seems well run and set to outperform.

I own their credit card, and I absolutely love it. Their cashback program has to be the best, and I think consumers will flock to it.
