Discover Bank U.S. Bank Average
Texas Ratio 5.72% 10.62%

As of September 30, 2014, Discover Bank had $636,716,000 in non-current loans and $103,000 in owned real estate. To cover these potential losses it had $9,508,277,000 in equity and $1,628,708,000 in loans loss reserves. That gives it a Texas Ratio of 5.72%. The closer the Texas Ratio is to 100% and over, the less capital and reserves a bank has to absorb its loan losses.

Return on Equity 26.63% 9.04%

Discover Bank has a Return on Equity of 26.63% versus the BestCashCow average of 9.04%. Return on equity measures how efficiently a bank is making money from its capital. A bank with a consistently high ROE can be considered well run. A bank with a consistently low ROE can be considered poorly run.

Capitalization 12.02% 11.20%

Discover Bank Balance Sheet Analysis

As of September 30, 2014, Discover Bank had assets of $79,117,948,000, loans of $65,534,027,000, and deposits of $45,394,841,000. Long-term increases in deposits shows a bank's ability to raise funds to grow its loans and assets. Loan and asset growth may rise or fall depending on a bank's strategy for growth. Sharp rises and falls in assets, deposits, and loans can be problematic, indicating a loosening of lending standards, or financial distress leading to reduced lending. A big change in these figured can also be from a bank acquisition or merger.
