Citigroup Jumpstarts Busy Earnings Week

Chris Preston

Citigroup (NYSE: C) reported a 30% jump in its first-quarter profits this morning, getting a busy earnings week off to a flying start.

Citigroup, the third big bank to report earnings this season, reported net income of $3.8 billion, or $1.23 a share. Revenue was up 3% from a year ago and 12% from the fourth quarter; operating expenses declined 3% from the fourth quarter; and revenue from investment banking increased 8% from a year ago.

The strong earnings pushed Citigroup shares up 2.7% in early trading.
