Citigroup (C): A Merger With Bank of America (BAC)

Print Email

With Citigroup’s (NYSE: C) shares off from $55.55 to under $19 and concerns that it cannot weather another round of write-downs which may be coming for subprime paper, credit card debt, and troubled LBO loans, the quesiton is, who might take the bank over ?

High on the list would have to be Back of America (NYSE: BAC) which seems to have managed to avoid a lot of the LBO and subprime landmines.

BAC shares are off 30% over the last six months, while Citigroup is down 65%
