What are Wall Street analysts saying about Citizens Financial Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Citizens Financial Group stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Citizens Financial have outperformed the industry in the past year. Also, the company has an impressive earnings surprise history. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings in all the trailing four quarters. Third-quarter results reflect robust organic growth on the back of margin expansion and higher loans balance. Citizens Financial launched a fresh TOP V Program, which targets pre-tax benefit of $90-$100 million by 2019-end. Also, it remains on track with its TOP IV initiatives, anticipated to achieve pre-tax benefit of $105-$110 million by the end of 2018 and boost earnings. Though significant exposure to commercial loans and to pending legal cases remain concerns, strong capital position keeps the company poised to undertake opportunistic growth strategies." (11/20/2018)
  • 2. Citigroup Inc analysts commented, "CFG reported better than expected results: $0.78 vs. our/consensus’ $0.76 estimates. The $0.02 beat was split ~50/50 between net income and lower share count when compared to our estimates. The bigger takeaway is that the slow, steady momentum continues. The ROTCE trend remains up and to the right with 1Q18 ROTCE coming in at 11.5%, on their way to the 13-15% medium-term target. TOP V was hinted at (could hear more in July) and, given that finding efficiencies has been one of management’s strengths, we see no reason to expect the savings to be off trend from $75-100M in annual savings. Core" efficiency ratio has dropped from 67.6% in 1Q15 to 60.4% in 1Q18 showing a dedication to improvement outside of just NIM expansion." (4/20/2018)
