Discover Financial's Focus On Prudent Growth Is Paying Off, Says Jefferies

In a report published Monday, Sterne Agee Group reiterated its Buy rating and $45.00 price target on Discover Financial Services (NYSE: DFS).

Sterne Agee noted, “We are lowering our 2013 and 2014 EPS estimates to reflect higher marketing and other operating cost. We have been assuming regular reserve building (vs. releases) in 2013 and 2014 already. We are reducing the FY13 EPS from $4.50 to $4.40 and lowering the FY14 EPS estimate from $4.75 to $4.60. We are initiating quarterly 2014 EPS estimates. The pending change to a December fiscal year (not reflected below) is not expected to have much of an impact on EPS estimates.”

Discover Financial Services closed on Friday at $38.50.
