As Citigroup passed $5, I was asked by several people why the stock has been so strong recently.
There is no news, but the JPMorgan report was a big catalyst. Citi is a low priced stock, and there is lots of speculation earnings will be positive (Street consensus $0.00). They report on the 19th.
All the big banks are up this week:
(figures as of this writing)
Zions up 9.3%
Citi up 9.3%
Bank of America up 5.4%
Fifth Third up 5.5%
JPMorgan Chase up 4.5%
