Before Thursday’s opening bell, Citigroup released its first quarter results. Here’s what the results mean for mutual fund investors.

Inside the Results

Earnings

Net income increased to $4.8 billion, or $1.51 per share, up from $3.9 billion, or $1.23 per share, last year. Excluding special items, EPS was $1.52 – above analysts’ view of $1.39.

Revenue
Revenue declined to $19.74 billion from $20.21 billion. Analysts expected to see revenue of $19.82 billion.

Cutting Costs

Citi’s earnings jumped 17% during the quarter as the company was able to significantly lower costs and increase investment banking sales.

The bank has faced challenges since the financial crisis, but has begun to recover as it repairs relationships and legal issues. During the last stress test, the bank was finally given permission to boost its 1 cent quarterly dividend.

The Bottom Line
