In a report published Wednesday, Sterne Agee analyst Greg Smith reiterated his Buy rating on Discover Financial Services (NYSE: DFS), and slightly raised his price target from $45.00 to $46.00.

In the report, Smith noted, “We attended DFS' analyst day and came away incrementally more positive as credit trends continue to improve and expense levels should not be any worse than feared. Reflecting incrementally less provisioning, we are raising our 2013 EPS estimate slightly. We are also raising our price target to $46. We believe that DFS is an outlier among large financial institutions with some of the best returns, good growth prospects, a very strong balance sheet, but one of the lowest valuations.”

Discover Financial Services closed on Tuesday at $42.13.
