My top real life pick. Undervalued in so many ways...Think about where this stock will be in 10 years and what the implied interest rate of the return on this stock will have been to get there....

DFS has strong numbers and profits are increasing. It is undervalued compared to its competitors.

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!

Discover is still trading at a discount like other financial companies, and at a discount to the other credit card companies. It has improved its network to cover almost as many locations as Visa and Mastercard. It is also using its network as a white label network for various partners including PayPal and Unionpay. It has built out its network in international markets as well and should start to see growth from that. It is also expanding its banking options including checking accounts, personal loans, and student loans. It is following Wells Fargo's strategy of cross-selling different services to its various customers.

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.
