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

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.
