When It Rains...
Thu, Jul 26, 2018

So today was a little rough.

Two stocks I own got hit...hard.

Mohawk Industries and Synchrony Financial.

Mohawk missed earnings and dropped 17% to a new 52 week low.

Mohawk's (MHK) Q2 Earnings and Revenues Miss Expectations

Synchrony got dumped by Wal-Mart and dropped 10%.

This surprise announcement was released during the trading day. 

So I was literally watching the stock drop in real time.

Walmart Taps Capital One for Store Cards, Dealing Blow to Synchrony

(Ironically, Capital One closed down 2%. Isn't that good news for Capital One?)

Welp, even though I am surprised and disappointed (and a little hungry), I decided not to sell.

I reviewed my posts that show why I bought each stock.

Based on that, I am considering buying more shares of each stock.

I hope I am not being overly optimistic, but I feel like both of these stocks will come back.

Of course, it will take some time.

So I finally checked out what the Amazon Prime Store Card is all about.

Here is my review.

It's pretty simple.

5% back every day on Amazon purchases.

Plus, I (almost) always remember to login to my ebates account first to get an extra 2% to 10% off my Amazon purchases.

I assumed it was through Amazon since Amazon is into everything nowadays.

The company behind the credit card is actually Synchrony Financial.

I have credit cards with other major companies but I have to say I was very impressed with the application process and most of all their account management website.

As a programmer, I have a special appreciation for a well thought out design.

(I hope you feel that way about Symbol Surfing!)

After doing more research, it turns out that SYF offers the same type of service to other major retailers.

There is a decent dividend yield of almost 2% and a very low P/E ratio of 12%.

This company just hit an all-time high and has had a nice retracement.

I think it is time to get in.

Hey, if Amazon trusts them, I do too.

Also, SYF is in Warren Buffett's Portfolio.
