Citigroup earnings was the big topic of discussion on Monday's Stop Trading! as Citigroup posted a $4.43 billion first-quarter profit, its best result in more than two years.
As Cramer put it, "this was Vikram [Pandit]'s quarter," adding that of all the banks, Citigroup was the "least hurt" by the subprime implosion.
It's "very clear they're over-reserved and [have a] better mortgage portfolio than anyone else," Cramer said.
He expects the stock to make another assault on $5, adding that the earnings are good enough to potentially propel the stock to $6.
"I think that the Treasury should let this one run, because the earnings are that good that you could reach $6 ultimately," Cramer said. "And then the goverment could have almost a double, which would be really great for the Treasury."
