    Why don't they just transport the racist Oprah fat ^%^% up there, serve to purposes with one. I forgot Oprah, isn't the "Anointed One" part white. Does that only make me half a racist? Get a new act, people are down on this guy because he doesn't have a clue.

    I will b back later to explain it to dzeeman. Working for one of the largest ins carriers, this thing hasn't even exploded. What I find humorous is although the site doesn't work, one can still get a fairly good estimate from Kaiser Permenente calculator on the site. My family would pay 1565.00 a month. LOL Even if my employer next year when employer mandates hit takes away my ins and forces me to the exchange, I wont buy this piece of trash policy. So we are back too where we started, uninsured. And if you think your collecting a fine, read the law. IRS has to collect from a refund off of taxes. I make sure I never give the gov an interest free loan. And finally the young ppl, they are not going to buy this #$%$ either, just watch. Obama's break right now, the people are not seeing the pricing yet, just wait.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Don't get it do you. People are fed up. I pay my bills on-time but am the most dangerous credit risk, own home and cars and don't need credit. So let me give you a real life scenario. Have a card (Not Citi) and I closed it with about 1,000 to go on balance. So what does the bank do, turns around and gives me a $30 membership fee. Called them on it but they said since there is still a balance the fee is correct. Told them it was closed and can't use acct. So I said reinstate it which they said they are not doing currently. So don't sit there and say if is the people, this bank JP decided they want to get greedy even further. So unless they pull the fee, I'll trade them any day 1000 for 30. Great business model of theirs. I must say, Amex tried this once and I forced them right into 0 pct on my own, so they can do it, they want to see how hard you will push. In JP terms, I'll make them eat it if they don't relent simply 30 bucks.

    Citi in BIG trouble--LINK

    This is simple to solve, they like their money. Never forget that. Break out the bat like I did with Amex. Wanted to take a fixed 2.99% up to 17.24, then pinned it in a letter to all cardholders. RESULT: Called told them cancel the acct and move it into collections. Told them to make a business decision, if they want their money then set the interest rate back where it was at. Well after about three calls over 1 month and a half, not credit record problem reported, they settled in a letter, zero percent for a year which I won't have a balance and then it goes to 7.99% fixed. I wonder how many people just roll over and take this BS. It's unsecured debt and as a homeowner I pay my bills but really don;t need credit. But to pull this stunt, it was unacceptable. One additional point to the story, AMEX s no longer a credit card co on paper, they are a US bank. And for them to chg their entity, take tarp for their bad business decisions, then want to strap on the cardmember a 17.24% rate, well why can't the consumer simply say, I'm changing my mind too?

    Citi opens third rural lending company in China
    By Alan Wheatley
    Reuters
    14 October, 2009

    Citi China has opened its third lending company, near the northeastern port
    of Dalian in a town designated by the government as a pilot location for
    rural banking reform. Citi (C.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) said
    on Wednesday that it expected the company, Dalian Wafangdian Citi Lending
    Co Ltd, to see significant credit demand from individuals and
    micro-businesses underserved by China's big banks. The company has
    registered capital of 17 million yuan ($2.49 million). More than 100 rural
    financial institutions have been established across China since 2006 as
    part of a drive by the government to increase access to financial services
    and thus help reduce a yawning income gap between cities and the
    countryside.

    The Asian Development Bank last week approved a technical assistance grant
    of $500,000 so that the People's Bank of China can improve the statistics
    it gathers about rural financial needs. are registered trademarks or

    No I'm not a shorty, I think they will do well. However I do believe on placing all info/data on the table. You actually could work where I do in management, they are always trying to assess something without taking all the info into account. Dreamers

  • Wells Fargo to Raise Credit Card Rates
    Cardline
    10/08/09

    Wells Fargo & Co. plans to raise interest rates on most credit card
    customers by 3 percentage points before new rules limiting such increases
    take effect, according to a company executive in a report from Bloomberg
    News. "This is something we've been contemplating for quite a period of
    time," said Kevin Rhein, group head of card services for the San
    Francisco-based banking company. Wells began advising customers this week
    that the change would take effect Nov. 30. Though the Credit Card
    Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act would curb issuers'
    ability to raise rates and fees starting in February, House Financial
    Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank is holdings hearings today that
    could lead to moving the effective date up to Dec. 1.

  • Review of Citi Draws Wary FDIC Response
    By David Enrich and Randall Smith
    The Wall Street Journal
    10/09/09

    The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is questioning the generally positive
    conclusions in a government-mandated review of Citigroup Inc.'s top
    management, according to people familiar with the situation.

    Some officials at the agency have expressed doubts about the rigor of the
    report, which was based partly on interviews of Citigroup executives who
    were asked to rate the effectiveness of their colleagues, these people
    said. While the findings still are being reviewed, the skeptical reaction
    could cause the FDIC to give the report little weight during the next
    regulatory assessment of the New York firm's management.

    Management skill is one of the factors used by regulators to determine
    financial-health ratings of U.S. banks. Such ratings help determine whether
    banks will be kept on an unusually tight regulatory leash. Citigroup
    already is operating under supervisory agreements with regulators,
    including the FDIC.

    The review, conducted this summer for Citigroup's board by recruiting and
    consulting firm Egon Zehnder International, was triggered by the
    government's stress tests of top U.S. banks last spring.

    The report awarded strong overall marks to Citigroup's management team and
    to Chief Executive Vikram Pandit in particular, according to people
    familiar with the matter. The report provided less-favorable assessments of
    at least two of Mr. Pandit's lieutenants, Vice Chairman Lewis Kaden and
    Chief Administrative Officer Don Callahan.

    The review was completed last week, and Citigroup's board began discussing
    this week whether to make any management changes in response to the report.
    The FDIC began sifting through the findings this week.

    People familiar with the situation said the FDIC signed off on Citigroup's
    selection of Egon Zehnder to conduct the management review. FDIC officials
    vetoed a consulting firm that the bank initially proposed for the job.
    After vetoing the consulting firm favored by Citi, FDIC officials sent Citi
    "a list of approved firms acceptable to them," and one was Egon Zehnder,
    one informed individual said.

    Now, though, some FDIC officials are skeptical of the findings. One person
    close to the agency described the outside report as "a total whitewashing."
    Some agency officials also are having second thoughts about the
    qualifications of Egon Zehnder, which largely runs executive searches for
    clients.

    A spokeswoman for Egon Zehnder declined to comment.

    The FDIC has questioned whether Mr. Pandit, a longtime investment banker
    until he took over as CEO in December 2007, can manage a company as
    complicated and troubled as Citigroup. Tensions between the bank and the
    agency have been mounting ever since Citigroup's bid to buy most of
    Wachovia Corp. with FDIC aid fell apart last fall.

    At a dinner Tuesday in New York to honor the banking industry's top women,
    FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair recounted the unraveling of Citigroup's deal for
    Wachovia. As she spoke, some Citigroup executives in the audience fidgeted,
    one shaking his head disapprovingly.

    Is the International Olympic Committee RACIST?

    What an idiot. You might as well join them. Chicago spent 46 million (sunk costs) into this fantasy. And the question at the news conference was, was it money well spent. Answer, well yes we got global exposure, people now across the world know who we are and where Chicago is located. Tell that to the poor taxpayers when schools and other things could have been vastly improved. And the pompous of the Nobama, he found out again just how much influence he doesn't have, can't wait for the others to get a hold of the additional cost of the fed showing up, good for IOC to hand them their hat. I would bet across the world, the first round didn't garner them more than 25 votes. Stupid politicians

    *** CITI: 2009 WORLD'S BEST BANK LIST ***

    I work for a global bank listed in this report (HSBC). Wonder how Citi compares to them as far as assets/liabilities with H bein gin the 50's as a stock. They both are global and huge competitors. However I do know HSBC did not take (UK Tarp) like other banks and reported way back when this disaster as one of the first with our losses. So why the big diff in stk pricing?

    Glad to hear the interview with Pandit on CNBC. However interesting enough the information being received via the mail since the geniuses in our government legislative new card laws. To beat out some timelines, the credit co's are sending out their rate raises. Amex is a great one, going up to 17.24% However this is the same company that changed its entity from credit to a bank, took TARP, and on top of it it isn't enough, lets strap it on the the cardholders and taxpayers. I must say when I called Citi the other day, much more willing as a company to work within framework. So, personal wars have now started to make a point. You take TARP, then raise rates against cardmembers with pristine credit histories, then as a buisness it appears like AMEX, you made a very bad business decision. In fact, the most dangerous credit holder is a homeowner that owns and needs no credit. So go Citi for being there for cardmembers, places like Chase and Amex will eat there unsecured balances. Bring it on just to make a point of it all. The hypocrisy of these companies, TARP then raise. Well I changed my business model to lokking at it and its ill affects on my family. Have fun writing it off.

    Citi to 7
    Conversion Delayed - All we need to know
    Lets Face it - Pandit has a plan
    History in the Making
    C to $45 in 18 Months

    Lets face it based on what just transpired this morning in pre-market and now live, these boards are a waste of energy and time. I've listed some great titles above that clearly didn't pan out. Although I've read a lot of intelligent posts that make sense, at the end of the day none of us really know what's going on, even with the numbers. Did Citi post good numbers, yes...So what! This bears it out that it really doesn't matter in this market. I need to go back to my favorite crap table, better odds there. : )
