Citigroup shares were down -13.6% year-to-date compared to the -13.1% decline in the industry Zacks Banks – Major Regional, reflecting the numerous investigations and lawsuits as well as the uncertainty surrounding the recovery plans of the new management team.
However, as the company is making progress in its strategy to exit the consumer banking business in 14 international markets, Citigroup has completed the sale of its Australian consumer business to National Australia Bank Limited (“NAB”). It targets a return on average tangible common equity (RoTCE) of 11-12% over the next three to five years. Additionally, net interest income growth, decent liquidity and capital deployment plans are positive.

Prologis stocks have outperformed Zacks REIT and Equity Trust – Other Industry over the past year (+4.6% vs -2.8%). The Zacks analyst believes the company has the ability to offer high-quality facilities in key markets and, with its strong balance sheet, is well positioned to capitalize on favorable trends in the real estate industry industrial. Along with the rapid adoption of e-commerce, this asset class is poised to benefit from a likely rise in inventory levels.
However, the increase in the supply of industrial real estate in several markets could fuel competition and curb pricing power. Additionally, stabilizing e-commerce sales growth is a concern for rental rate growth.

ADP shares have outperformed outsourcing industry Zacks over the past year (+11.7% vs. +10.5%). The Zacks analyst believes the company continues to enjoy a dominant position in the human capital management market through strategic buyouts such as Celergo, WorkMarket, Global Cash Card and The Marcus Buckingham Company. It has a solid business model, high recurring revenue, good margins, strong customer loyalty and low capital expenditures. In addition, it continues to innovate, improve its operations and invest in its ongoing transformation efforts.
However, ADP faces significant competition in each of its product lines. Failure to stay technologically up-to-date could reduce demand for its solutions and services. Rising expenses due to investments in transformation efforts remain a concern. The high level of debt remains a concern.
