Citigroup (NYSE:C) — This diversified financial services company provides a wide range of products to retail and corporate clients in more than 100 countries. In Q2, regional banking revenues hit all-time highs at $8.2 billion, generating profits of $41.61 billion, and total loans grew by 3.4%.
S&P believes that Citigroup made “significant progress in improving credit quality,” and they target the stock at $50 within 12 months.
Technically, Citigroup appears to have experienced a selling climax. A buy signal from an oversold stochastic indicator is a positive, and several days ago, a buy signal was triggered from our proprietary indicator, the Collins-Bollinger Reversal.
But buying C stock is still high risk and only for bottom fishers. A rebound should take Citigroup back to its 50-day moving average at above $36. Longer term, the target is north of $50.
