Bill Nygren gives away his favourite financial stock

There’s plenty of quality names that are now on sale in the “financial” space, says Oakmark Funds’ portfolio manager. XLF, at present, is down 20% from its year-to-date high.

Nygren’s bull case for Ally Financial stock

One name in particular that pops out to Bill Nygren is the Detroit-headquartered bank holding company, Ally Financial Inc (NYSE: ALLY). This morning on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street”, he said:

It’s our largest financial holding. Ally Financial sells for a little under $40 a share right now. They are supposed to make about $8.0 per share this year. They also pay a dividend that is higher than the 30-year bond yield.

Earlier this week, the American business magnate, Warren Buffett also invested in Ally Financial. The stock is down 25% from its year-to-date high.

Why else does he like Ally Financial

On average, Wall Street sees upside to $58 a share in Ally Financial that translates to a 50% upside from here. Quoting other reasons why he likes the NYSE-listed company, Nygren said:

Ally Financial Inc is also repurchasing its stock at current prices it would be about 17% of their share base this year. So, even if the top-line does not grow at all, earnings per share would be growing close to 20% percent.

Last month, the U.S. financial services company reported $2.03 of per-share earnings for its fiscal first quarter versus the consensus of $1.93. Its revenue, however, was below Street expectations.
