The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer, James Early, and Ron Gross.

In this segment, Citigroup shares rose this week on the news that the bank is cutting 11,000 jobs. Shares of other major banks rose, as well, despite Citi being the one doing the cutting. James analyzes the move for Citi, and shares his belief that the major Wall Street banks should be broken up.


Citigroup's stock looks tantalizingly cheap. Yet, the bank's balance sheet is still in need of more repair, and there's a considerable amount of uncertainty after a shocking management shakeup. Should investors be treading carefully, or jumping on an opportunity to buy?
