Valuing Citigroup stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Citigroup's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Citigroup's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Citigroup stocks trade at around 7x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the stocks or simply that they're under-valued.
Citigroup's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9612. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Citigroup's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 33.0 million Citigroup stocks held short by investors – that's known as Citigroup's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% up from 30.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Citigroup stocks can be evaluated.
Citigroup's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Citigroup stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Citigroup stocks traded daily (recently around 25.8 million). Citigroup's SIR currently stands at 1.28. In other words for every 100,000 Citigroup stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1280 stocks are currently held short.
However Citigroup's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Citigroup stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Citigroup stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Citigroup's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Citigroup stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0163% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Citigroup stocks, roughly 16 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Citigroup.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Citigroup.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 29.34
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Citigroup's overall score of 29.34 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 46th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Citigroup is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 2.97/100
Citigroup's environmental score of 2.97 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Citigroup is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 14.93/100
Citigroup's social score of 14.93 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Citigroup is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 16.44/100
Citigroup's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Citigroup is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 4/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Citigroup scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that Citigroup has a damaged public profile.
|Total ESG score||29.34|
|Total ESG percentile||46.36|
|Environmental score percentile||5|
|Social score percentile||5|
|Governance score percentile||5|
|Level of controversy||4|
Dividend payout ratio: 19.54% of net profits
Recently Citigroup has paid out, on average, around 19.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Citigroup shareholders could enjoy a 3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Citigroup's case, that would currently equate to about $2.04 per share.
While Citigroup's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Citigroup is investing more in its future growth.
Citigroup's most recent dividend payout was on 27 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 30 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Citigroup stocks were split on a 1:10 basis on 9 May 2011. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Citigroup stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Citigroup stocks which in turn could have impacted Citigroup's stock price.
Over the last 12 months, Citigroup's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $39.5964 up to $80.29. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Citigroup's is 1.8961. This would suggest that Citigroup's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
