Synchrony Financial has established a committee of senior leaders from throughout the company to set goals for improving minority representation across its staff and create partnerships with diverse suppliers and customers, Bloomberg's Jennifer Surane says. The committee, led by President Brian Doubles, was established after the firm hosted multiple companywide meetings in recent weeks that focused on discussions about race and inequality, Surane says. Doubles said much of his time in June has been spent on such matters and that the group intends to meet multiple times a week, Surane notes. The task force "really ensures the topic remains front and center for us," Doubles said in an interview. "It also ensures a level of intensity and focus. We're going to organize around this differently." Reference Link

JMP Securities analyst…

JMP Securities analyst David Scharf raised the firm's price target on Synchrony (SYF) to $27.50 from $21 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares. The analyst is positive on the company's exposure to big box, essential goods, and online pure plays, resulting in a much smaller contraction in sales and A/R than in the case of Alliance Data Systems (ADS). Scharf adds that Synchrony's borrowers have emerged from forbearance programs at a faster rate.

Stephens analyst Vincent…

Stephens analyst Vincent Caintic raised the firm's price target on Synchrony to $33 from $25 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares after his retailer-by-retailer analysis. The sales growth of Synchrony's retail partners should mirror Synchrony's own revenue growth, contends Caintic, who said he is "comfortable" with his 6% year-over-year NII growth projection for Synchrony in 2021 being above the 2% consensus forecast.
