Here Is The Reason For JPM's Negligible Litigation Reserve: You

Tyler Durden's picture




 

For all those asking, there is just one little footnote that explains all you need to know why "JP Morgan is not Bank of America"...

Translation: unlike BAC, which is on the hook for billions in litigation payments and other private label exposure, the party funding the same exposure at JP Morgan is.... you (but that is "contested" by the FDIC and its former boss Sheila Bair who recently found religion, but just a little too late).

I woke up this morning and had this gnawing sensation that I was on the hook for some piece of shit bank.  Now I know its JPM.  Fuck JP Morgan.

This is why it behooves JPM to go all the way to foreclosure on deficient mortgages.  No loan workouts, no short sale, no principal reductions.  Getting paid 100 cents on the dollar for all that crap mortgage paper requires foreclosure.  FDIC guarantees it.

Exactly, which is why all of this talk about principle write-offs is only bumping of gums.  Who audits this shit?  Are accounting firms the next enablers, like MBIA, the rating agencies, and AIG, too important to the ponzi to fail?

What neither of you realize is that the banks can make substantial principal write downs, keep people in their homes (thereby reducing the ratio of vacant homes to qualifiend buyers, ergo a reduction of supply) and actually come out ahead better finanacially than if they continue down the foreclosure path.  If you did you homework you would find this to be true.  Their big big argument is moral hazard, but I have a hard time with that one...how about the moral hazard of writing millions of shitty loans?  How about the moral hazard of selling distressed notes at 30 to 40 cents on the dollar when the people in the homes could afford a mortgage at a 60 to 70 cent on the dollar principal reduction.  Why the taxpayer is getting soaked for the difference as the banks are settling claims agains them for 5 to 10 cents on the dollar.

All is well as markets flush green basking in QE expectations, never even a hint of red, baking it in however many times over. Insanity.

Meanwhile silver is just pennies away from $40. 

I wouldnt be at all surprised to hear Bernank downplay QE today to put a whoopin on PM's.

+1 on the possible QE3 downplay today. The past two days have obviously been a test balloon, can easily be reversed with the right empty comments today.

'JPMorgan’s Quarterly Profit Rises 13%, to $5.4 Billion'. I guess we all know where a fairly large portion of that profit came from? Just couldn't be from taking silver down from 48 to 34.

Heard a radio ad this morning on WFAN. JPM Chase is offering cash back "rewards" for their mortgagees if they open up a Checking Account with Chase. Up to $500 annually! You can use the money for whatever; go to a ballgame, buy some golf clubs or even take golf lessions, says the announcer, as a window is heard smashed in the background.  Chutpah, itz....

James Dimon as some in the financial media (Tom Keene are you reading this) have rebranded him is headed for the Treasury just as soon as he can determine if O will be re-elected.

The media cheerleading and lack of critical analysis is beyond sickening. Is it possible that Mayor Mike has gotten advice from Immelt on how to telegraph his poltical preferences to his editors and onair "talent".

Fraudclosure... the final words, NO FUCKING STANDING. the crap they all sold to Maiden Lane XX removed any security intrest in those notes which they probably sold way before that anyhow.. its a massive fraud. If Nyone has standing to forclose its either the federal reserve system or treasury.. never seen them in the fuckin case caption.. have you?

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Litigation Release No. 22031 / July 7, 2011 Securities and Exchange Commission v. J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Civil Action No. 11-cv-03877-WJM-FM (D.N.J. July 7, 2011) SEC Charges JPMS with Fraudulent Bidding Practices Involving Investment of Municipal Bond Proceeds J.P. Morgan to Pay $228 Million to Settle Charges By SEC, Others

The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged J.P. Morgan Securities LLC (JPMS) with fraudulently rigging at least 93 municipal bond reinvestment transactions in 31 states, generating millions of dollars in ill-gotten gains.

To settle the SEC’s fraud charges, JPMS agreed to pay approximately $51.2 million that will be returned to the affected municipalities or conduit borrowers. JPMS and its affiliates also agreed to pay $177 million to settle parallel charges brought by other federal and state authorities.

Your point on these actions being a positive for class actions is most excellent.  I'm still hoping for a crash and burn scenario for JPM.
