According to Zacks Investment Research, "Barclays' shares underperformed the Zacks categorized Foreign Banks industry over the last one year. The company remains on track to achieve targeted cost savings this year, driven by continued divestiture of non-core operations world-wide. These initiatives are expected to improve profitability over time. However, mounting regulatory and compliance costs as well as higher legal expenses continue to be near-term concerns. In addition, the company has been facing pressure on revenue owing to weak global economic recovery. Moreover, the dividend cut of more than 50% for 2016 and 2017 is likely to deter shareholders confidence in the stock." (2/8/2017)
