    Shouldn't look at one day's price action in a vacuum. C shares have gotten hammered recently, and was priced for worse earnings.

    My guess is that C should have kept their allowance reserves rather than recognizing them as profits.


    The real positive is that 3rd world issues apparently havent severely affected C profits.

    Any way you look at it, this is a great quarter. Especially when compared to estimates and JPM. citi is doing something right and I expect will soon break above $50

    No doubt this is probably the biggest positive surprise from C in 13 years. Could it be that they have finally turned the big ship around? After years of poor management, maybe Corbett is the right guy. Must still get rid of the rubin stain that has haunted them so long.
