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.

Company has performed as well as V and MA but has not been shown the same love from the market. DFS has expanded its business model and developed its technology which will secure additional business and maintain the company's revenue growth.

For a long time I associated Discover with bad stereotypes from the 80’s and 90’s. Now that I own a card – and the company has spun off – a whole other story emerges. In my area they are landing accounts with merchants who have long resisted credit cards. Their customer service, website, etc. is great. Growth potential from revenue increase, market share increase, upselling to loyal customers, new products and innovations. Probably not all of those will pan out, but with a basic valuation that is low…

With green thumbs on AXP, V, and MA I might as well add this one as well. Payments industry is growing as the world is becoming more of a cashless society. Still there is huge room and even continents of growth opportunities still out there for companies!

DFS continues to find new avenues of growth and despite its run, is still undervalued.

Credit card companies will rule for the next few years until the next instant payment strategy emerges.
