If they would just leave the fracking fractional fiat alone they wouldn't be so freaking fooked.

They probably should have just said no to "Just say no". Sadly they didn't, which just goes to prove that bad ideas are addictive and make people significantly more stupid than they already are.

Look at me for the perfect example.

is this funding simply to replenish the cash to have a decent Tier 1 ratio, or is the bank merely preparing for a waterfall of litigation now that the seal has been broken?


c) all of the above

I't is not just BAC.  All financials are dropping today, and not just those with skimpy capital.  Look at what investors think of book value, P/B:  DB 66%; Lloyds 61%; Barclays 50%; Citi 61%; BAC 45%; JPM 87%; GS 99%.  As Clint Eastwood said "what we have here is a lack of communication".

citi will be happy to empty its loan loss reserves to help boa...its loan portfolio is so sterling and solid due to the booming recovery it is still predicting that it could more cover boa's troubled position...

boa is the most arrogant snot nosed asshole in the banking world outside of goldman sachs....boa people sicken me....they are nothing but punks.....i would love to see that bank go up in flames...

Sorry everyone it's all my fault...

I went in last Friday to my local branch & exchanged a $20 note for 10 rolls of nickles... 

As soon as I o the "patriotic" thing of BORROWING $20 at 27.98% interest + annual fee, the stock will recover...

Finally shut mine down after ten years last week, they would absolutely not get off the 14$ acct fees.

Then they try to sell you something else that costs even more money to stay with them.

Bye, bye BAC.

The tarp has been left in a dark damp cellar and it has dry rot.Looks ok when you turn on the lights but if you try to pick it up it will fall apart in your hands. Sorry, might as well haul it to the dump.

"soured home loans"..."more mortgage related costs"...

What's the big deal? DC just provided the solution. Any foreclosed property with defective, unlawful activity associated to the transfer is all good. Title companies are now rendered unnecessary and obsolete.

Fiat isn't limited to the concept of "money" ya know, it's equally or possibly better when used in the creation of law.

Git er done.
