Citigroup - Company of the Day

Citigroup reported Q1 2011 revenues down 22% YOY, with Q1 profit down 32% YOY. Both metrics, however, marked sequential improvement from Q4 2010 and came in slightly ahead of consensus analyst estimates.

We estimate that two-thirds of the company's stock value is generated through its sales & trading and consumer banking businesses.
