Jefferies reiterated a Hold rating and $69.00 price target on Capital One Financial (NYSE: COF) following the company's 3Q earnings report. COF reported EPS of $2.03, ahead of the consensus estimate of $1.94.

Analyst John Hecht commented, "COF reported adjusted 3Q16 EPS of $2.03 versus our estimate of $1.95 and consensus $1.94. The upside was due to a combination of higher net interest income and fee income which more than offset a higher provision. The higher revenues and provisions, can both be attributed to strong loan growth (up 12% YoY). Rising NCOs, due to mix shift and loan growth, continue to be in focus, however this may benefit EPS in 2H17 as ALLL builds moderate."
