Outperform
Synchrony initiated with an Outperform at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Jason Arnold initiated Synchrony with an Outperform rating and a price target of $45. Arnold says the company is "poised for solid growth" based on his outlook for opportunity in the private label card space as well as the positive trends in the online/mobile spending category. Given the expected return on equity, the analyst believes that Synchrony's valuation of 9.7-times expected FY18 earnings is modest, forecasting a "more fair value" of 12-times with his price target.

Synchrony remains a top pick among card issuers at Jefferies
After spending time with management, Jefferies analyst John Hecht says Synchrony Financial remains a top pick among his coverage of card issuers. Synchrony's "high touch, high value add and enhanced capabilities" position it well into contract renewals. The company has two large retail contracts with terms extending to next year, by which time they need to be renewed, Hecht tells investors in a research note. He believes Synchrony is difficult to replace for a retail partner and keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $50 price target.
