Discover Bank Ratio Analysis

The following ratios and data are available to help you better understand the financial condition of Discover Bank. The data is provided by the FDIC. All banks listed on are FDIC-insured. No depositor has ever lost deposits that have been within the FDIC insurance limits.

Texas Ratio
Discover Bank U.S. Bank Average
10.24% 3.96%

The Texas Ratio compares the bank’s non performing assets (non-performing loans and real estate owned) with its tangible common equity and its loan loss reserves. A lower Texas ratio indicates better coverage of problem loans. The closer the Texas Ratio is to 1-to-1 or 100%, the less capital and reserves a bank has to absorb its loan losses.

As of December 31, 2024, Discover Bank had $2,259,657,000 in non-current loans and $345,000 in owned real estate. To cover these potential losses it had $12,791,099,000 in equity and $9,283,000,000 in loans loss reserves. That gives it a Texas Ratio of 10.24%.

Return on Equity
Discover Bank U.S. Bank Average
21.98% 12.20%

Discover Bank has a Return on Equity of 21.98% versus the BestCashCow average of 12.20%. 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.

Discover Bank U.S. Bank Average
8.56% 10.76%

Discover Bank has a Capitalization of 8.56% versus the BestCashCow average of 10.76. Capitalization measures how much equity capital a bank has to underpin loans and other assets on its balance sheet. The higher the capitalization number the more secure a bank is considered.

Discover Bank Balance Sheet Analysis

As of December 31, 2023, Discover Bank had assets of $149,353,230,000, loans of $119,129,817,000, and deposits of $112,624,604,000. 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.

Customer Reviews for Discover Bank (2)

  • January 7, 2023 | | Replies 1

    Comparing other online banks including Ally, Discover has never let me down.

    Having accounts with them for 12 plus years, and being a AAA member, I get five basis points more interest over the published rates.

    I wish Discover would allow users to be able to scan checks with their home computer and upload the deposits like Ally Bank does.

    But over all, they get a 4.5 out of 5 in my humble view. Another plus is that ALL their customer service is based in the United States or Canada.

    I have both ally and discover and discover does allow you to take a picture of a check and upload it to discover.
