I predict that if Citi is going to attempt an acquisition of another bank, it will not provide enough of a deposit base to save that bank. Any “regional” bank that Citi would acquire would not add enough value to save Citi. The reality of it is; Citi is a Titanic ship, and all the BOD has been doing is re-arranging deck chairs while the ship continues to sink under its own blotted weight. I would suggest that Citi will be forced by the FED into a shot-gun wedding with one of the following “bigger banks”; JP Morgan, BoA or Wells Fargo. If this occurs, the executives from Citi should be jailed. Lets see if I am correct
