13:13 EDTCEarnings Preview: Outlook mixed for Citigroup into Q4 results
Citigroup (C) a bank holding company, is scheduled to report fourth quarter earnings before the open on Thursday, January 16, with a conference call scheduled for 11:00 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 96c on revenue of $18.18B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 83c-$1.14 on revenue of $17.23B-$19.01B. LAST QUARTER: Citigroup reported weaker than expected third quarter results. The bank stated that its third quarter performance was hampered by the economy. The company’s fixed income business was especially hurt by the macro situation, the bank stated. Among the macro issues that hurt Citi were global spread compression and regulatory changes in certain markets, and headwinds from North America mortgages. The bank’s net interest margin inched down to 2.81% in the third quarter, from 2.85% in the second quarter. Citi predicted that its net interest margin would remain "roughly flat" in the fourth quarter, adding that it expected to release loan loss reserves above the necessary amount in order to offset reduced mortgage origination rates in the fourth quarter. PEERS: So far the fourth quarter results of the large banks have been mixed, with JPMorgan (JPM) reporting higher than expected profits excluding certain items but lower than expected revenue, and Wells Fargo (WFC) and Bank of America (BAC) both reporting results that surpassed expectations. STREET RESEARCH: In a note to investors on January 7, research firm Oppenheimer called Citigroup's stock undervalued. Citigroup's Citicorp is the last great value in the banking sector, the firm contended. Moreover, Citigroup will eventually return its approximately $68B in excess capital to shareholders, according to Oppenheimer, which thinks that Citigroup's stock is worth $73-$78 per share if the value of the $68B is included in the calculation. It kept an Outperform rating on the shares. Less optimistic was research firm Jefferies, which listed several concerns about Citigroup in a note to investors on January 8. Specifically, the firm was concerned that analysts may cut their EPS estimates for the company, due to a weaker trading environment and a slowdown of emerging market economies. Although it's unlikely that the stock will drop significantly, it could underperform other large banks, added Jefferies, which kept a Hold rating on the stock. Similarly, Deutsche Bank on December 4 cut its rating on Citigroup to Hold from Buy, citing concerns about the macro economy and the valuation of its stock, along with the impact of the Fed's tapering program. Deutsche reduced its price target on Citigroup to $56 from $61. PRICE ACTION: Citigroup's stock is up nearly 8% over the last month, and is up 1.7% in today's trading ahead of tomorrow's earnings report.
