For today’s bulletin, we take a look at Citigroup Inc. (C). Citigroup is a global financial services company. It provides consumers, corporations, governments and institutions with a broad range of financial products and services, including consumer banking and credit, corporate and investment banking, securities brokerage, transaction services and wealth management. The Company also offers various wholesale banking products and services, including fixed income and equity sales and trading, foreign exchange, prime brokerage, and equity and fixed income research services. Citigroup Inc. is based in New York.

Citigroup has come a long way from the dark days of the Bush recession of 2007-2008, when many questioned the financial giant’s ability to survive. Thanks to the US government bail out, this “too big to fail” institution has come roaring back, and we now rate it a STRONG BUY.

The bank reported earnings last month and the results were strong, with a nice beat. At that time, Citigroup reported adjusted earnings of $1.28/share for Q4 2017. This was well ahead of analyst expectations of @ $1.20/share. Revenue was $17.3 billion at that time, which topped Q4 2016 figures by 1%. Profits for 2017 were up 6% year-over-year, and came in at $15.8 billion.
