Synchrony is a top pick with upside to $33, says Morgan Stanley

Overweight
Synchrony initiated with an Overweight at Stephens
As previously reported, Stephens analyst Vincent Caintic started Synchrony (SYF) with an Overweight rating and $40 price target, citing $5B excess capital that allows Synchrony to buy back 20% of company once capital return is deregulated, industry retail share weakness, and revenue growth. The analyst also started American Express (AXP) and Discover (DFS) with an Underweight rating.
