Spend $5 at SUBWAY ... a far better deal than BAC.

If I read the recent comments right and it is the case that creditor banks can "seize" re-hypothecated capital at debtor's BK. I expect a lot of institutional endowments to quickly leave the house of BAC and C..

Wow, I thought the massive wall of bids at 5.01 was impressive, now I see the defensive line at 5.00.

Time for BAC to do a Reverse Merger with a Company trading above 10$

Warren 'Thanks Uncle Sucker Sam' Buffett is on the phone right now with Obama's chief of staff, prepared to 'pledge' more money for BAC, but only if the taxpayer-guarantee-against-any-losses-whatsoever plan usually extended to Warren is sweetened to included "and a minimum of 25% profit, aka give me first secured status on the good stuff that BAC has."

The highly significant back story that cnBSc is working on, via Becky B. Quick, is whether Warren is negotiating these terms in the bathtub.

You got it! Warren to buy BAC preferred at $1.00. Fed rescue to kick in 10 minutes later.

Just pull a citi, 10:1 reverse split coming up...no problem.

Yes exactly, that should buy them another 2 years. Citi is really a $2.50 stock, these algos appear pretty easy to fool. That being said, it's almost time for ShitiCorp to have another reverse 10:1 split.


On another note, notice how all these banks own each other's stocks. This reminds me of Japan, where all the corporations are interlinkied, and that hasn't worked out too well either. Get your shorts on!!!

I've been watching BAC on stockcharts for a little while now.  The price change will fluctuate between -0.16 and -0.17 but the actual price remains fixed at $5.03.

No, a bad blue chip stock, a great penny stock, since it has all the attributes that penny stocks have, eg - pie in the sky business model that will require a miracle to actually happen, bullshit buy recommendations by conflicted, self-serving analysts, a book value near or below zero, etc...

I ask with some trepidation, but if the situation is so dire, why doesn't BAC put Countrywide into Bankruptcy Court?

I"m not sure and haven't researched the issue, but I will admittedly throw a SWAG out there that it has something to do with the fact that BAC was essentially forced to swallow Countrywide (and Merrill) as part of the Hank 'Tanks In The Street Unless We Help Goldman Sachs & JP Morgan Grow Into Robber Baron Status' Paulson recovery pact, formed and executed in conjunction with Timmmay.

Sorry for the history smackdown.

The Maginot Line was designed to force Germany to attack through the low countries. It was a total success. It was France's military that was supposed to stop Germany's advance which failed in the face of the new Blitzkrieg tactics.

I thought the route through the Ardennes played a role, too?

And the fact that the Polish Invasion gave the Germans some very fresh experience.

But I agree, had the French deployed better and used their tanks in a modern way they could have stopped them...

my humble opinion: if the Rothschild bank's share drops to 5 USD, it means that the Rothschilds wanted it to drop to 5 USD.

now the question is: what is the endgame?

It will also set off the buy algos at FRBNY and Paulson and Co.  Additionally, expect Bove to issue a "super-duper stong buy with leverage" recommendation.
