10. Citigroup (C) is a diversified, international financial services conglomerate.Net income reported for first-quarter 2011 was $3 billion, declining from $4.4 billion in the year-ago quarter but doubling sequentially. The 32% drop in first-quarter earnings topped analysts' estimates as earnings from consumer banking improved and reduced the allowance for future losses. Consumer net credit losses dropped 32% to $5.4 billion, driven by the continued improvement in credit cards and residential real estate lending. Net credit losses were $6.3 billion, sliding 25% from 2010 first quarter. As a sign of improving credit quality, Citigroup's total allowance for loan losses at the end of March was $37 billion, or 5.8% of total loans, down from $49 billion, or 6.8%, in the same period last year. For 2011 first quarter, Citigroup reported revenue of $19.7 billion, narrowing 22% from 2010's first quarter. Net interest revenue was $12.2 billion, 16% lower than the prior-year period, largely attributable to declining loan balances in local consumer lending. The stock is trading at 10.6 times its estimated 2010 earnings with a potential upside of 24% in the next year.
