  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "CIT Group’s shares have significantly outperformed the Zacks categorized Miscellaneous Service industry, over the last six months. The company remains well positioned to grow organically through acquisitions. Moreover, the sale of the aircraft leasing operation is in sync with its efforts to become a leading national middle-market bank. Also, its capital deployment initiatives are impressive. However, the company has been facing deteriorating asset quality and mounting expenses. Expenses are expected to increase further due to continued investments in franchise. Further, sluggish growth in the industries where the company provides finance, along with strict regulations, will likely dent its performance in the near term." (1/3/2017)

  • Oppenheimer Holdings, Inc. analysts commented, "We had a chance to host a number of meetings with CIT management and West Coast Institutional Investors last week. Representing CIT was new CEO Ellen Alemany, new CFO Carol Hayles and Head of IR Barbara Callahan. The meetings were mainly a forum to further explore the March 23 Strategic Update Call and presentation, although there was also some venting from long suffering shareholders about the company’s performance in recent years under prior management. For our part, we had a number of central questions: (1) Given that the company emerged from bankruptcy six years ago, and now we are to wait two more years for a double-digit ROE, what went wrong with prior plans?"
