ETF activity is neutral. The net inflows of $2.35 billion over the last one-month into ETFs that hold CIT are not among the highest of the last year and have been slowing.

Economic sentiment

Credit worthiness

Credit default swap | Neutral

The current level displays a neutral indicator with a strengthening bias over the past 1-month. Although CIT credit default swap spreads are decreasing, they are near their highest levels for the past 1 year, which indicates the market's more negative perception of the company's credit worthiness.
