Barclays Upgrades Synchrony Financial to OW

This morning Barclays upgraded shares of SYF to OW and a price target of $38.

“Historically, investors have placed a premium value on spend-centric business models relative to the more credit-sensitive lend-centric issuers. However, in the current environment where swipe economics are continually eroded both internally (rewards) and externally (merchants and regulators), we think this perception is outdated.”

Barclays has been a top 5 analyst covering SYF. The stock has no Sell ratings and is trading near 52-week highs.
