COF Chart COF data by YCharts

Shares of Capital One (COF - Get Report) closed at $69.59 Friday, returning 21% this year, following a 36% return during 2012. The shares trade for 9.5 times the consensus 2015 EPS estimate of $7.31. The consensus 2014 EPS estimate is $6.80.

Please see TheStreet's earnings coverage for details on Capital One's second-quarter results, which were described on July 18 as "pleasantly solid" by KBW analyst Sanjay Sakhrani.

Sakhrani rates Capital One "outperform," with a price target of $79, and in a note to clients wrote that the company's "U.S. Card revenue margin was better than our estimates and appears to be sustainable."

"COF remains well-capitalized and is in a position to substantially raise its payout ratio in 2014." The company pays a quarterly dividend of 30 cents on common shares, for a dividend yield of 1.72%. Capital One didn't request Federal Reserve approval for share repurchases through the first quarter of 2014, because of its 2012 acquisitions of ING Direct (USA) and the HSBC's (HBC) U.S. credit card portfolio.
