Goldman Sachs added Citigroup (NYSE: C) to its Conviction Buy List with a price target of $49.00 (from $42.00).

The firm said the shares are mispriced given its earnings power, especially considering further restructuring could result in an 11% ROTCE over time.

They note shares traded at a discount to peers (7.6x 2014E EPS vs. 11x for peers), despite the fact it has considerably more levers to protect and grow earnings in a difficult revenue environment. They also note management is singularly focused on improving returns with the recent restructuring plan Citi announced in December the first in a multi step process.
