Citigroup Inc (C): Today's Featured Financial Loser

Citigroup ( C) pushed the Financial sector lower today making it today's featured Financial loser. The sector as a whole closed the day down 0.4%. By the end of trading, Citigroup fell 82 cents (-3%) to $26.83 on light volume. Throughout the day, 30.8 million shares of Citigroup exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 41.5 million shares. The stock ranged in price between $26.70-$27.62 after having opened the day at $27.52 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $27.65. Other company's within the Financial sector that declined today were: Central Federal ( CFBK), down 18.2%, Carver Bancorp ( CARV), down 17.4%, Ampal-American Israel Corporation ( AMPL), down 12%, and Credit Suisse ( DOIL), down 10.8%.

Citigroup Inc., a diversified financial services holding company, provides a range of financial products and services to consumers, corporations, governments, and institutions worldwide. The company operates through two segments, Citicorp and Citi Holdings. Citigroup has a market cap of $81.07 billion and is part of the banking industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 7.7, equal to the average banking industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 5.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 13 analysts that rate Citigroup a buy, three analysts rate it a sell, and four rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Citigroup as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its good cash flow from operations and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including generally poor debt management, poor profit margins and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the positive front, Hampton Roads Bankshares ( HMPR), up 27.5%, Firstbank Corp Michigan ( FBMI), up 19.1%, Plumas Bancorp ( PLBC), up 16.1%, and Village Bank and Trust Financial Corporatio ( VBFC), up 12.3%, were all gainers within the financial sector with Willis Group Holdings ( WSH) being today's featured financial sector winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the financial sector could consider Financial Select Sector SPDR ( XLF) while those bearish on the financial sector could consider Proshares Short Financials ( SEF).
