According to Zacks, “Capital One’s shares underperformed the industry in the last six months. The company’s second-quarter 2017 earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate, primarily driven by higher revenues and easing margin pressure, which were partially offset by higher expenses. The company should continue to benefit from the strength in its credit card and online banking businesses as well as an improving interest rate scenario and strengthening economy. Given a solid liquidity position, it is expected to continue enhancing shareholder value through efficient capital deployment activities. However, continuously increasing expenses are likely to hurt the company's profitability, going forward. Also, asset quality is expected to remain under pressure due to losses in the auto portfolio and U.S. card business.”
