Discover's stock price

Postby AnthonyBarone » Sat Jul 12, 2008 3:08 pm

Who follows this thing besides me? Had their IPO in '07 at 20 something a share and it's gone downhill since to 14. I think this is a good time to back up the truck and load up on their stock. They could grow big time overseas and once this credit crunch price will go back up.

What are your thoughts on this?

I think whenever this mess is over the people that bought the bank and credit stocks when they were lowest will have some HUGE gains.

I feel the financial stocks have been oversold. The subprime mortgage industry is causing everyone else that's in the finance industry to be hit hard too.

Are you aware Mastercard's stock price is over $250 and you would have made over 500% in just 2 years owning it?

Visa Inc. began trading stock a few months ago and is at $70 but has a marketcap double that of Mastercard.

American Express trades at $37 and is down 40% during the last year.

Credit cards will rise in popularity as people have no other way to pay for their gas and other basic needs.

I believe they will offer a handsome reward to patient investors.

Today Discover (symbol: DFS) closed at 12.96. This is a company with positive earnings, a 16% profit margin and at a price/earnings ratio of only 8. Many of these financials that are being dragged down with the rest are starting to look awful cheap.

Man I'll tell you I threw a few bucks in Discover and the stock price went down to 11 flat on Friday. What the heck is wrong with these people this company is making good money. No need for a sell off it ain't a mortgage company!

My wife and I have an IRA and the value is almost half of what it was just a few weeks ago. The financial planner had us in a number of companies in the financial sector. With that aspect I've become so depressed we don't even want to look at our account anymore. We don't own Discover but we do have a financial ETF which may include it.

The Dow has almost dipped into the 8000 mark. These are scary times. I don't feel bad for the CEO and directors who's only pain is less valuable stock options, but the many Americans who have their retirements in the market.

Then there are people like me that have a small amount of money (a lot to me though) in the market that are hurting severely. I had money in very safe, non-risky blue chips and funds and I have seen my portfolio plummet in the last 3 months.

Something needs to be done. This needs to turn around. Not for them, but for us, the everyday Americans.

Another 700 points shed by the Dow this afternoon. Between bankrupt companies and others near it, my portfolio is down over 40% for the year.

Only God can save us now. I truly believe we are witnessing the end of the great American empire right in front of our own eyes.
