Citi reports Q1 EPS $1.68, consensus $1.61

Reports Q1 revenue $18.9B, consensus $18.86B. Revenues increased 3% from the prior-year period, driven by growth in both the Institutional Clients Group and Global Consumer Banking, partially offset by lower revenues in Corporate / Other primarily due to the continued wind-down of legacy assets. Net income of $4.6 billion increased 13%, driven by the higher revenues and a lower effective tax rate, partially offset by higher expenses and cost of credit. Earnings per share of $1.68 increased 24% from $1.35 per diluted share in the prior-year period, driven by the growth in net income and a 7% reduction in average diluted shares outstanding. Citi CEO Michael Corbat said, "Our first quarter results demonstrate strength and balance across our franchise and position us well for the rest of the year. We grew revenue across both our institutional and consumer businesses and delivered solid, client-led revenue gains in areas we have been investing in such as Citibanamex, TTS, Equities and the Private Bank. In addition to improving Citi's return on capital, we maintained our focus on also improving Citi's return of capital. During the quarter, we returned more than $3 billion in capital to common shareholders which helped drive a significant improvement in earnings per share. And we recently submitted our capital plan and believe we remain on track to meet the commitment we outlined at investor day of returning at least $60 billion over the 2017, 2018 and 2019 cycles, subject to regulatory approval." "While market conditions have been uneven so far this year, our first quarter results show our ability to deliver for both clients and shareholders and we look forward to sustaining this momentum for the balance of the year," Corbat concluded.

Buy
Citi upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS
UBS analyst Raul Martinez upgraded Citi to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $80 from $78. The risk/reward profile of owning the shares now skews positive, Martinez tells investors in a research note. He believes profitability in Citi's Global Consumer Banking "should grind higher" from current levels, while its capital optimization opportunities "remain considerable." The analyst is also encouraged by better loan growth and earnings momentum at Citibanamex. Martinez notes that Citi shares trade at a discount to all the banks he covers.
