Hedge Funds Lose on Citigroup $C After Greece Puts Plan to Vote

Citigroup (C) fell more than 8.55% in early trading on Tuesday “on worries that a planned Greek referendum could scuttle a plan reached last week to resolve Europe’s debt crisis,” reports MoneyWatch. “The Greek government shocked financial markets with news that it would put its cost-cutting plan to a popular vote, which could lead the country to default on its debt.” Citigroup had closed Monday at $31.59. It was trading at $28.89 at 9:37 am EST. The decrease came in spite of Citigroup’s upgrade from Credit Suisse, which brought the bank from a Neutral to Outperform, reports TheStreet.
