Congrats To All Who Got In On AIG Offering...(UPDATE: TIMBERRRRRRR)

Tyler Durden's picture


Update: Timberrrrrr - this is what happens when you can't package dogshit as a social network or a chinese reverse merger.

...You are down just 3% in a few hours. Also, as a reminder, flipping to bigger idiots only works when one has a profit. And congratulations to the US Treasury. The $5.8 billion in gross proceeds (and $5.4 billion net of the $385 million in fees paid to Bank of America, JP Morgan and other TBTFs) is almost, but not quite, in the same league as the $110 billion in new debt issued this week. Oh, and good luck with the remaining $41 bllion in AIG Treasury exposure (through the common) not at a loss (above $28.70)

Listen Mr Silver Dickhead, I was very polite when I told you in my post, please do not copy my ideas without providing proper attribution or a simple h/t.

I am not a copyright or plagiarism Nazi, but I find your gall amazing.

Now you are pimping your blog using my ideas on my home site.  

For this you shall be Banzai7'd

This has been on my blog since September 2010.

I posted it on this site yesterday with the Ben Pavlov Post.

Now he has copied the the concept, use of the dollar pyramid and my words verbatim.

I don't know about you, where I went to school this was called plagiarism.

Now I hate to pull this thread into a tangent because the AIG shit hole needs to be dealt with. But at the same time I am not going to stand by and watch the site get cluttered with unoriginal blog pimping.

On a split adjusted basis, AIG traded at > $1K/share 10 years ago.  Ugly bugly.

So who "had" to buy it this morning?  Who had to "promise" at $29/share all week?  Rigged market much?

Nice work the TBTF banks did for the gov there...agreeing to buy it and flipping it out at a loss to the dumbest algos in the room.  I have yet to hear or read any cogent analysis of this company and its true fundamental value.  It is really too bad that our government intervened and saved this embarrassment of a company.

In other news, prepare for an imminent break in the XRT @ the 50 day sma.  When it goes, get your surf board for the massive wave of selling in darling retail names, likely including NFLX which is printing a huge double top.  COSTCO and Amazon are not even waiting, reading the retail tea leaves of the last week or so in this bubbly retail group.  If ever there was an over owned segment of any stock market on earth, this is it.

In the meantime, banks continue to search for oblivion levels, otherwise known as "book value."  

This is the dumbest market in the history of the world...or probably more true, this isn't a market at all.

Thank you criminal syndicate Wall Street bankers, H. Paulsen, B. Bernanke, M. Shaprio.  Thanks for the wasteland.

Quite honestly, I'da have loved to see the Government sell a lot more of that stuff before it goes downhill, saving the taxpayer from the socialized losses and giving them just back to where they belong.

hey Banzai..just want to let you know I've printed out a few of your pieces and framed them and mounted them on my wall near my desk. they always provide me with a good chuckle during the trading day since they so often perfectly echo what is happening in this joke,,,uh,,,I mean market.

The check is in the mail...I swear.:-)

Everyone here knows I encourage "personal use" of everything I produce. If you want to buy from the store you will get a quality product, but I have never discouraged anyone from using my stuff otherwise. 

If people want to use it on their blogs etc, they are also fully encouraged to do so, with attribution (common courtesy).

I asked that guy to do this and he has ignored my request. Then in bad form he is pimping his blog all around ZH "off topic." And he is using my original idea to do it. 

He needs to be bitch slapped fast!

Hey Herman (latest GOP fraudster to undermine RP) Cain,

How you feeling about your support of the bailout now? 

You thought buying stock in AIG was a no brainer, great idea!  

How is it looking now? The cheese in your pizzas got nothing on you.  

As long as the fraudsters that you call friends got cashed out you probably still feel this was a great deal for the taxpayers.

All right, somebody tell me how they're gonna cheat next.  My whole investment strategy is to -  JUST SIT BACK AND TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW THEY'RE GOING TO CHEAT! What can the TBTF's do to make tons of money that incorporates CHEATING AND FRAUD.  And usually fucks GOV INC, Pension Funds, Retail Investors bigtime!
