Half the 22 stocks saw price drops last year, and just three outperformed the S&P 500.

Citi, Viacom, Crowdstrike, Carrier Shares Touted at Bank of America

Citigroup recently traded at $64.24, up 2%.

Morningstar analyst Eric Compton puts fair value for the New York financial-services giant at $83 and assigns it a narrow moat.

“We expect the bank will continue to trend closer to a $6 billion quarterly run rate for pre-provision pre-tax operating income in 2022, as it awaits some balance sheet growth and rate hikes, after being closer to an $8 billion quarterly run rate pre-pandemic,” he wrote in an October commentary.

“Due to the card and international exposure, we expect Citi’s recovery may be a bit slower than some peers.”
