Credit Suisse analyst Moshe Orenbuch rates Ctigroup "Outperform," with a $48 price target, saying on Thursday that although the international "slowing trends concern investors, these markets (in aggregate) have had faster growth and command higher valuations that the U.S.," and that his firm's "sum-of-the-parts analysis of Citicorp's international segments based on current P/E and P/BV multiples for the regions, derives $45-50 of value for Citicorp's ongoing operations."
