Analyst’s Recommendation 

Last month, Jefferies analyst Ken Usdin maintained a Buy rating on the stock and a price target of $87 (29.31% upside potential). 

Usdin expects Citigroup to record earnings of $2.17 per share for the fourth quarter of 2021. 

Consensus among analysts is a Strong Buy based on 4 Buys versus 1 Hold. The average Citigroup price target of $85.40 implies 26.93% upside potential from current levels. Shares have gained 18.7% over the past year.
