Did you know that last year Citi was a "market leader"? From the mailbag:
Citi was supposed to report bonus numbers today for analysts in the institutional clients group, but they have once again delayed giving the numbers. This is the third time they have delayed numbers. We were first supposed to receive them June 30 and the day came and passed and then July 20th came and went. And today was the third time that they gave no advanced warning that bonus numbers were not coming. Last year we were given our numbers early because we were a "market leader" and this year we are being a "market follower" and waiting to see what our competitors pay. MS and apparently CS gave numbers yesterday and as you know, JP put out numbers last Friday.
