Citigroup, Inc. (NYSE:C)
Historical Stock Chart
6 Months : From May 2018 to Nov 2018
By Ben Eisen
Citigroup's (C) stock is now down 2.2% on the day, making it the worst performer among the biggest six banks so far today.
Wells Fargo (WFC), the early underperformer, is now down 1.1%. Citigroup topped analyst forecasts while Wells Fargo didn't, but analysts point out that the outlook for the bank is murkier going forward.
"Results were above their expectations but it was largely a provision and tax rate beat," said Brian Kleinhanzl of Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, in a note to clients.
He added: "The focus going into the quarter was NA card revenue yields and that missed our expectations and we believe that we were below consensus in the quarter as well. Overall, we expect [Citigroup] to be a relative underperformer as concerns still linger about long-term revenue growth in the company's cards business. In addition, loan growth missed estimates and that is opposite of what we have seen at peers that have reported today."
JPMorgan is now up 0.8%. Both Goldman and Morgan Stanley are now higher. Bank of America is down 0.4%.
