DFS 46 TP 60 NEXTYR PE 7.7
They have always been fair, I always feel like they want me and treat me always like a valued customer. They are huge I am small yet they work with me on my needs. They sacrifice a little and gain a life long loyal customer. Now if the Markets intend is to force negative interest rates banks would be hurt huge. But like Ben says they cannot forecast the future. They crunch numbers and make predictions on historical conditions.....but the Feds moves are on educated guesses at best. The longer they stay down the worse a year it will be, almost all people are responsible for their own pensions and retirements...if they freeze spending due to fear of not being able to retire look for GDP contraction. Still Near Zero Prime.....is that enough to venture a business...when most are stating "it's not business as usually"
Discover runs absurdly high margins
Forward P/E less than 10 compared to twice that for Visa and MC.
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.
Low PE, high upside
Looks like a solid dividend growth stock.
Slow, steady growth biting at the ankles of oversized banks.
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.
Best customer service in the industry will win out over time as they expand to offer more products
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.
Plastic is king, EM growth, Ignored by many researchers
Fewer legacy costs than big banks offering cards means higher ROI than competitors. One of the two top card franchises as a recognizable brand.
lowest P/E and highest dividend yield of all the card companies
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.
Seems to go up. ROE.
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 yearBecause 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).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.
