Citigroup, Inc. (NYSE: C) is down this morning by 1.5% at $4.03, but the volume is off the charts at close to 20 million right at 9:00 on word that the US Treasury will immediately sell $1.5 billion in shares.

E*TRADE Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: ETFC) may finally be on the path to redemption after its reverse split.  Last night the company reported its first profit in about 3-years, back to the day when it had all those silly mortgages for clients.  Shares are up 9.3% at $14.59 versus a new adjusted 52-week trading range of $11.15 to $20.80.  Before the split this would have been millions of shares, but so far we have only seen about 40,000 shares trade hands.

LM Ericsson Telephone Co. (NASDAQ: ERIC) is trading down 6% at $11.40 on over 300,000 shares pre-market after earnings missed estimates.

Quicksilver Resources Inc. (NYSE: KWK) is one of the top gainers this morning after it announced a $1 billion sale of 100% of its interests in Quicksilver Gas Services.  The market cap here was only $2.17 billion.  Shares are up almost 17% at $14.90 on about 230,000 shares.

SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK) is down but off lows after the earnings significant beat patterns may be peaking.  The big news is the CEO departure.  Shares are down 5.2% at $40.89 on almost 200,000 shares.
