    A Look At Our $88 Price Estimate For Discover Financial Services

    Discover Financial Services has done well over the years to carve out a name for itself in the extremely competitive card and payments industry. As one of just four major credit card processing companies in the U.S., Discover’s share of the market is just a fraction of market leader Visa’s. However, as one of just two companies which provide end-to-end payment services to customers and merchants (American Express being the other), and given its sizable exposure in the student and personal loans industry, Discover has a strong value proposition – especially taking into account the new avenues that have opened up due to technological advancements in the payments and lending spaces over recent years. Discover’s steadily growing portfolio of credit card, student and private loans coupled with improving net interest margin figures will be the key drivers of value for the company in the future.
