Citi bull: Stock doubles in 4 years

Citigroup stock, which took a hit after the company adjusted its third-quarter earnings, still looks on track to double in the next four years, CLSA bank analyst Mike Mayo said Friday.

Citigroup needs to stay out of the headlines. Having said that, it's somewhat like what you would say to your kids when they're acting badly, 'I don't like what you did, but I still love you.' I don't like seeing a $600 million write-down, but I still love Citigroup stock."
