Synchrony Financial. The Law Offices of Vincent Wong announce that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut on behalf of investors who purchased Synchrony Financial (“Synchrony”) (NYSE: SYF) securities between October 21, 2016 and November 1, 2018.
The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Synchrony falsely represented that its consistent and disciplined underwriting practices had led to a higher quality loan portfolio than those of its competitors. In truth, Synchrony relaxed its underwriting standards and increasingly offered private-label credit cards to riskier borrowers to sustain growth. The truth about Synchrony’s credit standards began to be revealed on April 28, 2017, when the Company announced disappointing first quarter 2017 earnings driven by poor loan performance. This news caused Synchrony’s shares to decline by $5.25 per share, or nearly 16%.
If you suffered a loss in Synchrony you have until January 2, 2019 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
