Citi reports higher profit

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Citigroup is reporting earnings that beat Wall Street's expectations for the second quarter.
 
Profit for the March-to-June period was $3.9 billion after excluding an accounting gain, the bank reported Monday. That's up 26 percent from a year ago.
 
The profit amounted to $1.25 per share, beating the $1.18 per share predicted by analysts polled by FactSet.
 
Revenue was $20 billion after excluding the accounting gain, up 8 percent from the same period a year ago. That beat the $19.8 billion predicted by analysts.
 
Strong business from investment banking boosted Citi's results. The loss from Citi Holdings, where the bank stores troubled assets from the financial crisis, continued to shrink.
 
Citi's stock jumped 2 percent in pre-market trading to $51.80.

    Find someone, anyone, with cable TV who hasn't had at least one miserable experience dealing with that company's customer service people and you've accomplished something we couldn't. But in fairness to the cable companies, whose business model at this point resembles that of a cartel, as customers we don't always handle system outages or the explanations for them in the most mature fashion.
