Thursday, 1 Jul 2010 | 5:56 PM ET

In breaking news Francesco Guerrera of the FT tells Fast Money that the government made a handsome profit from their Citi stake.

The government’s gains on its Citi investments reached $10.3bn on Thursday after it completed the sale of a second tranche of shares at a profit of about $700m, Guerrera tells the desk.

Citi said on Thursday that it was “pleased” with the Treasury’s profit on the share sale.

The Treasury said it expected to continue selling the rest of its stake in the market through its agent, Morgan Stanley.
