Discover Financial Services (NYSE: DFS) today reported net income of $708 million or $2.25 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2019, as compared to $687 million or $2.03 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2018. The company’s return on equity for the fourth quarter of 2019 was 24%.

“Our differentiated business model, product set and intense focus on execution enable us to continue delivering industry-leading returns,” said Roger Hochschild, CEO and President of Discover. “We are making carefully targeted investments in marketing, analytics and technology that contributed to our strong returns in 2019 and provide a solid platform for another year of profitable growth in 2020.”

Segment Results:

Direct Banking

Direct Banking pretax income of $883 million increased by $9 million from the prior year driven by higher net interest income, partially offset by an increase in the provision for loan losses and higher operating expenses.

Total loans ended the quarter at $95.9 billion, up 6% compared to the prior year. Credit card loans ended the quarter at $77.2 billion, up 6% from the prior year. Personal loans increased $233 million, or 3%, from the prior year. Private student loans increased $288 million, or 3%, year-over-year. The organic student loan portfolio, which excludes purchased loans, increased $674 million, or 9% from the prior year.

Net interest income increased $123 million, or 5%, from the prior year, driven by loan growth which was slightly offset by net interest margin compression. Net interest margin was 10.29%, down 6 basis points versus the prior year. Card yield was 13.08%, a decrease of 12 basis points from the prior year primarily driven by prime rate decreases and higher interest charge-offs partially offset by favorable portfolio mix. Interest expense as a percent of total loans decreased 11 basis points from the prior year, primarily as a result of lower market rates.

The 30+ day delinquency rate for credit card loans was 2.62%, up 19 basis points from the prior year and up 12 basis points from the prior quarter. The credit card net charge-off rate was 3.41%, up 18 basis points from the prior year and up 9 basis points from the prior quarter. The student loan net charge-off rate, excluding PCI loans, was 1.18%, up 13 basis points from the prior year and up 49 basis points from the prior quarter. The personal loans net charge-off rate of 4.26% was down 23 basis points from the prior year and up 27 basis points from the prior quarter. The overall net charge-off rate was higher primarily due to the seasoning of recent years' loan growth and to a lesser extent supply-driven credit normalization.

Provision for loan losses of $838 million increased $38 million from the prior year as the impact of higher net charge-offs was partially offset by a lower reserve build. The reserve build for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $87 million, compared to a reserve build of $120 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Total operating expenses were up $75 million from the prior year primarily as a result of increases in employee compensation, professional fees and information processing. Employee compensation increased as a result of higher average salaries and benefits. Professional fees increased primarily in connection with achieving a higher level of recoveries. The increase in information processing was due to continued investment in infrastructure and analytic capabilities.

Payment Services

Payment Services pretax income was $41 million in the quarter, up $18 million from the prior year, due to higher revenue driven by strong volume growth from PULSE and Network Partners businesses.

Payment Services volume was $66.0 billion, up 9% versus the prior year. PULSE dollar volume was up 6% year-over-year, which reflects the impact of solid growth from existing issuers and acquirers, as well as new issuing and acquiring relationships. Network Partners volume increased by 52% from the prior year driven by AribaPay.

Share Repurchases

During the fourth quarter of 2019, the company repurchased approximately 4.9 million shares of common stock for $401 million. Shares of common stock outstanding declined by 1.5% from the prior quarter.

Conference Call and Webcast Information

The company will host a conference call to discuss its fourth quarter results on Thursday, January 23, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. Central time. Interested parties can listen to the conference call via a live audio webcast at https://investorrelations.discover.com.

Verlustvermeidung als zentraler Erfolgsfaktor

Verlustvermeidung als zentraler Erfolgsfaktor
Da Gewinne und Verluste asymetrisch wirken ist die Verlustvermeidung ein Schlüsselfaktor bei der erfolgreichen Geldanlage. Denn zum Aufholen einer negativen Rendite von -50% ist eine positive Rendite von +100% notwendig.
