    Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) is considered safer than Bank of America Corporation (NYSE:BAC) recently after fears of Double dip in the US economy. BofA shares have recovered far better from the lows as compared to C but investors now are skeptic about its future as it does most of its Business in US as compared to Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) having its presence worldwide. Bill Fitzpatrick, analyst at Optique Capital Management said "Globally, there's far greater opportunity for Citigroup than for Bank of America,".
