Baron Opportunity Fund Comments on Synchrony Financial

Guru stock highlight

April 20, 2017 | About:

Synchrony Financial (NYSE:SYF), the largest issuer of private label credit cards in the U.S., reported better-than-expected financial results with 12% growth in receivables, 13% growth in net interest income and significant margin expansion. However, the stock underperformed due to increasing concerns over consumer credit and broader underperformance of bank stocks, reversing their significant outperformance in the aftermath of the election. We continue to own the stock because we believe credit losses will be manageable and that the company has a long runway for profitable growth. (Josh Saltman)

From the Baron Opportunity Fund first quarter 2017 shareholder letter.
