Citigroup Inc. (C) - NYSE
  • Fri, Jul. 15, 11:07 AM
    • The bank earned $1.24 per share in Q2, topping estimates by $0.13, but one year ago, analysts were estimating Citi (NYSE:C) would earn $1.49, reminds John Carney. Just two months ago, consensus was a full $1.26.
    • For full-year 2016, one year ago, analysts were forecasting $5.99, and today the average is $4.53 - a 24% decline which about matches the drop in the share price.
    • Helping the quick cut in Street forecasts over the past few weeks, was CEO Michael Corbat in early June saying he thought Q2 trading revenue would be up only slightly vs. Q1. It ended up rising 12%, though this was likely due to a late-month, post-Brexit flurry of action, rather than Corbat low-balling.
    • After an early rise, the stock has turned lower by 0.7% on today's session.

    • "Our overall Q1 results reflect an exceptionally volatile and turbulent market environment during our first fiscal quarter," says Jefferies (NYSE:LUK) CEO Richard Handler. "A quiet December was followed by an extremely challenging January and first few weeks of February."
    • The investment bank posted a loss of $166.8M in Q1 vs. a profit of $12.9M a year ago. Revenue of $299M fell a full 49%, led by an 82% plunge in trading revenue to $58.8M. Of this, fixed-income revenue fell to $56.8M from $126M. Equity trading revenue fell to just $1.7M from $203.5M thanks to markdowns on two equity block trades.
    • Good times ahead: Not only have markets stabilized, says management, they've "aggressively snapped back" in the early part of Q2.
    • Coming one month ahead of the rest of the Wall Street banks, Jefferies results are often seen as a bellwether of what to expect. It sounds like Goldman (NYSE:GS), Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), CItigroup (NYSE:C), and JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) have the month of March to make up for what was a very lame start to the quarter.

    • Citigroup (C -5.4%) beat headline estimates, but Oppenheimer's Chris Kotowski - a bull on the stock - says it's nearly impossible to figure out the "true" operating earnings thanks to a large number of one-time items, and the bank's weak job in providing detail.
    • We do know profit at Citi Holdings soared to $704M from $87M a year ago thanks to, among other things, the sale of OneMain Financial. Income at the Global Consumer Banking unit, however, fell 20%, and at the Institutional Clients Group by 18%.
    • His bottom line: “It strikes us that the general picture is that consumer banking revenues were somewhat weaker than expected, but importantly that all the credit metrics, both domestically and abroad, were stable at excellent levels.”
    • Nomura's Steven Chubak calls the results "disappointing," citing the above numbers at GCB and ICG. He expects the stock to continue to underperform.
    • Back out the sales of Citi Holdings assets, says RBC's Gerard Cassidy, and Q4 missed by plenty.

    • It's a rough day for the markets in general, but Citi's loss today is about double that of the other TBTFs.

    • Speaking to the media ahead of the investor call Citigroup (C +2%) CFO John Gerspach says trading activity is up early in Q4, but still running at muted levels - Markets and Securities services revenue fell 5% Y/Y in Q3, led by fixed income's 16% decline.
    • Despite a 25% decline in revenue at the investment banking unit, Gerspach says he feels good about Citi's M&A franchise. Advisory revenue fell 24%, debt underwriting dropped 17%, and equity underwriting tumbled 43%.
    • The revamp of the credit-card division is a long-term project, says Gerspach on the investor call, and will probably take up to two years. Q3 card revenue fell 9% Y/Y to $1.93B. Credit card loans fell 3% to $64.8B. Gerspach hopes those balances start to increase early next year.
