4/13/15: Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) will report Q1 results Thursday before the open. Expectations are for EPS of $1.38, up from $1.30 in the year-ago quarter. Analysts, however, are guarded heading into the release. Last month, Citi’s finance chief said the bank expected trading revenue to fall by a mid-to-high single-digit percentage due in part to a “modest loss” related to swings in the Swiss franc. The New York City-headquartered bank also will likely show it took a hit from the dollar’s rise. Half of Citi’s revenue comes from outside the United States. Citi hiked its dividend from a penny per share to $0.05 in March and announced a whopping $7.8 billion share buyback program. Shares, at $52.77, are down 2.77% year to date.
