Synchrony Financial Is Still Profitable (NYSE:SYF)

hafiz caem


Due to the novel coronavirus and resulting economic hardship, credit card companies have taken a hit over the past half year. In my recent articles on Capital One Financial (COF), Capitalize On Capital One Financial and Capital One Is Trading Lower Than Tangible Book Value, I have analyzed the past two quarters’ financial results, the company’s financial health, charge-offs and forbearance, and valuation. What I found was that the bank had a good long-term outlook with a low valuation. Due to this, I am going to analyze more credit card companies to see if more bargains can be found. I recently looked at Discover (DFS) in the last article which can be read here. What I saw was that the trends were just like Capital One’s, but the value was far worse.

In this article, I will focus on Synchrony Financial (SYF) to see if it offers the

hafiz caem

Personal financial management is an important concept for many individuals and business owners. Personal finances often dictate how a person lives his life and what decisions to make as an entrepreneur or business owner. Assessing personal finances should be done in a method similar to assessing business finances. Many of the same financial principles are applicable, albeit on a much smaller scale. Several types of personal finance management techniques or tools are available to individuals.

Personal Financial Statement

VERO BEACH — Arts organizations throughout Florida have been hard hit by COVID-19 but for the Cultural Council of Indian River County, that has also meant difficulty in finding and hiring a new executive director.

Barbara Hoffman, who led the Cultural Council for over 10 years, retired last year and the Council formed a search committee to find her successor. The committee, composed of board members, crafted a new job description that more accurately reflected the role the Council plays within the artist community of Vero Beach, Sebastian and throughout Indian River County.

Witcher 3’s next-gen re-release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X could help push 5 more years of sales, CD Projekt RED hopes.


Witcher 3’s next-gen re-release in 2021 could lead to a decade of strong sales–or at least that’s what CD Projekt RED wants. The beloved RPG has already sparked 5 years worth of strong sales across consoles, PC, and Switch, and now CDPR is shooting for five more.

The 2021 re-release will mark the fourth The Witcher 3 launch; first in 2015, then again in 2016 as a GOTY edition, then once more in 2019 on Switch. This time CDPR is pushing the game past its limits with new higher-end CPU, GPU, and storage tech.

In a recent conference call, CD Projekt president Adam Kicinski gives insight on why The Witcher 3’s next-gen re-release is happening. It’s all about extending sales, which makes

IAB: Linear TV Advertising Down 24% in 2020

hafiz caem

NEW YORK—While IAB reports “light at the end of the tunnel” for the likes of digital advertising, the outlook for traditional media does not look so rosy. Buyers expect an average estimated -8% ad spend across all media channels, with linear TV in particular down 24% in 2020.

IAB projects that overall U.S. traditional media ad spend is expected to be down 30% in 2020 from its 2019 numbers. Digital, on the other hand, is estimating a 6% increase year-over-year. As has been reported by other outlets, the amount of time and money spent on digital platforms during the pandemic has increased, likely helping push it to this growth.

IAB gives a specific focus to the rise in digital video consumption (OTT/CTV) during the height of the pandemic (March through May). The number of households that watched OTT daily went up from just over 44 million at the start

EPIC Charter Schools, State Auditor heading to court to decide if school must release financial records

hafiz caem

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – After more than a year of back in forth between EPIC Charter Schools and state auditors, a judge will finally decide if EPIC must release its financial records. 

A hearing on the matter has officially been scheduled for December 16-18.  

“It’s just simply accountability and making sure we are being good stewards with taxpayer dollars,” State Representative Mickey Dollins told News 4. “If there’s nothing to hide then they should have no problem with releasing that financial information.”

A former teacher, Dollins says he’s not the only one at the capitol concerned about EPIC Charter Schools.  

“Other legislatures across the aisle have raised issues and concerns with this, Governor Stitt has called the audit on EPIC charter schools,” Dollins said. “We’re just simply wanting to have those people receiving taxpayer dollar be held accountable.”

That’s where the state and EPIC disagree.

EPIC’s “learning fund” takes in
