Capital One’s stock (NYSE: COF) increased 11.5% in the last week, significantly outperforming the S&P 500 (up 1.5%). Furthermore, the same trend was observed over the last ten days (14.8% 2.1%) and one month (28.4% vs 5.9%).
Credit card issuers (Discover Financial, American Express AXP, and Capital One COF) have seen strong growth in their stock price over the last month period. This was due to an improvement in net interest income and consumer spending levels. The net interest income benefited from higher interest rates and growth in outstanding loan balances.
Capital One posted total revenues of $9.04 billion in the fourth quarter – up 11% yoy, driven by a 12% rise in net interest income and a 10% increase in non-interest revenues. Despite positive growth in the top line, it still missed the consensus estimates of earnings due to a significant build-up in provisions for credit losses and higher operating costs. That said, the increase in cost was not unexpected because of difficult macroeconomic conditions.
