ValuEngine likes the stock due to its strong one-year forecast target price of $12.73–and increase of more than 13%. Morgan Stanley upgraded the company to “Overweight” recently, but other analysts remain less optimistic. The stock is trading slightly below its 52-week high ($12.05) but has climbed significantly above its 52-week low ($6.76).
When Barclay’s announced their 2016 and Q4 2016 results in February, they recorded revenue of $6.24 billion and earnings of $0.21/share. That revenue figure represented a bad miss, with the company missing analyst estimates by more than 75%.
In the aftermath of the Bush recession of 2008, the company has been engaged in a long-term restructuring plan. The company claims the plan has been going well, and that their new emphasis is on US and UK business. CEO Jes Staley recently stated that the bank “[has] accomplished a lot in a year.” He added that the bank will soon move on from its recent restructuring and will “[shift] focus solely to the future, and in particular to how we can generate attractive, sustainable, and distributable returns for our shareholders.”
