Synchrony upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Ryan Nash upgraded Synchrony Financial to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $38 from $36. With shares trading at a discount to peers due to credit-related concerns, the current valuation is "compelling," Nash tells investors in a research note. Synchrony shares should outperform now that the contract renewal overhangs have been largely removed post the renewals of four of its five largest partners to 2024 and beyond, the analyst contends. Further, he believes Synchrony's credit normalization has largely subsided with flat underlying losses in 2019 and upside to 2020 consensus losses. In addition, a "robust" capital return program could drive $5B of repurchases over the next six quarters, says Nash.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Exxon Mobil (XOM) double upgraded to Outperform from Underperform at Macquarie with analyst David Hewitt saying with a "world class" Guyana play, multiple liquefied natural gas developments, the Permian "juggernaut" and growth in the integrated downstream, Exxon is "well positioned for the future, and is not being overly distracted by the energy transition debate." 2. Synchrony (SYF) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Ryan Nash saying with shares trading at a discount to peers due to credit-related concerns, the current valuation is "compelling." 3. Teva (TEVA) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James. 4. Elevate Credit (ELVT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Mark Palmer saying he views the shares as "simply too inexpensive" at current levels. 5. NetApp (NTAP) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Cross Research. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Trupanion 12% selloff on Synchrony deal an overreaction, says Lake Street
Lake Street analyst Mark Argento views the 12% selloff yesterday in shares of Trupanion (TRUP) on Synchrony Financial's (SYF) acquisition of Pets Best insurance as an overreaction. Pets Best insurance is a pet health insurance product company underwritten by Trupanion's insurance subsidiary, American Pet Insurance Company, Argento tells investors in a research note. The analyst understands the "knee jerk reaction" to the stock trading off as there is a risk that Synchrony could move underwriting of Pets Best's 125,000 pet policies away from Trupanion. Further, Pets Best with Synchrony is now a more formidable competitor to Trupanion, he adds. However, it is important to note Synchrony is not an insurance company and will likely need to maintain or grow its underwriting relationship with Trupanion, Argento writes. He believes Synchrony's motivation for the acquisition is to cross-sell its CareCredit consumer credit products to Pets Best's 125,000 policyholders and vice versa. This is a consumer credit play for Synchrony and not a foray into the insurance business "from what we can tell at this juncture," says the analyst. Argento keeps a Buy rating on Trupanion with a $46 price target.

Alliance Data price target raised to $210 from $190 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey reiterated a Buy rating on Alliance Data (ADS) and raised his price target to $210 from $190, telling investors in a research note that he believes Alliance deserves at least the 10% implied pf PE premium to Synchrony (SYF), its closest competitor, as it becomes more a pure-play, value-added, data-driven card services provider. He also likes Alliance's improving customer mix and its effort to divest non-core businesses.
