Bank Of America Stock Back To The "(Not So) Fantastic Fives"

Tyler Durden's picture

As of milliseconds ago, one share of Bank of America stock is now $5.99, a level it has not seen since the apocalypse back in March 2009, and upon penetrating it, a huge volume surge followed as an avalanche of sell orders were activated. However, we are confident this will be temporary. According to largely amusing rumors, Bank of America will follow through with its expropriation procedure and withdraw $5 from longs' brokerage accounts for each share they hold, effectively doubling the market cap in the process. So you see: there is nothing to worry about. Warren: resume your bath, both literal and metaphorical.

Ordinarily I'm fine with my contributions being anonymous, but I feel obligated to take credit for this drop.  I sold half my BAC puts at the gap down this moring.

You're welcome, everybody.

Several people in my cab over the weekend complaining about access problems w their BOA accounts. I told them said she's moving her money to a local bank, others thinking about it.

No worries. They neither need cash nor care if the share is above 6$ (or soon 5$, 4$, 3$ ... whatever).

It's only a matter of weeks before most of these banks are selling in the terrible twos: too low to sell more, too high to buy the perpetual call.

It was a clear black night, a clear white moon
Warren B was on the streets, trying to consume
some BAC, some preferred stock
rollin' in his ride, total oligarch

Just hit the Eastside of the Treasury
on a mission trying to find Mr. Timmy G.
Now your stocks going down, your need a T A R P
getting rich off the taxpayer, cash for free

This is the way the world ends

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

Is Bank of America toast?

Or will Buffet have reason to boast?

I guess we'll soon see


So that all stupid fuckers can roast!

11:43 CST - $5.93

Uh-oh. Once we pass 5.90 it's over...

Careless Whisper's picture

over? i think they might qualify for the pink sheets, and they won't have to worry about those annoying audited financial statements. not that they really mean much anyway.


tekhneek's picture

tons of stops at 5.90.. everyone knew it would flirt with the 6 handle, but < 5.90? that's just unpredictable territory right there...

monopoly's picture

It's been over for a long time. And am I still correct, under $5.00 mutual funds cannot own a stock? I think that is still correct.

@12:39 CST - Just hit $5.62

redpill's picture

I hope that crusty old fucker gets pissed and tries to double down.

ElvisDog's picture

I love the fact that the "Sage of Omaha" or whatever the fuck he likes to be called these days by the MSNBC crowd is getting corn-holed on his BAC investment. I would love for Warren to experience a classic Greek tragedy-type scenario.

mantrid's picture


ever wondered what Google CEO has to say about economy?


Where is the demand going to come today if it’s not from some form of government action?


“The federal government can spend as much money as it wants because we borrow in our own currency,”


Economic growth comes from the private sector with government assistance


All of the economists that I know agree that in a situation where there is a strong possibility of a very long- term recession, or at least a structural growth recession, which many people think we’re in, you need to do something now


Any ideas on which economists he's talking about?

demand will come when overinflate bankster's assets are cheap enough.


Poor and unemployed's net wealth before deflation = $0, after deflation = $0

Rich and never needed a job's net wealth before deflation = $100M, after deflation = $50M


There, wealth gap decreased.

Old Mr. Buffett

Sat on a tuffet

Eating his curds and way.

Along came a squid

and stuck it's beak in and told Mr. Buffett to suck it.

If Uncle Warren liked it at seven he will love it at five. Better buy another 5 billions worth on margin.

please do warren. i'd love to double up on my shorts.

AldousHuxley's picture

Buffett's bet wasn't on price but on whether BAC will be bailed out by the government.

Village Smithy's picture

I am ashamed to admit that QE2 turned me into a weak short. I have been burned so often. My fear is that I am not alone in this weakness, we should not be holding these levels, too much covering, no confidence. In my nightmares I see endless streams of long green candles rising forever upwards.

It used to take a lifetime to rack up the experiences you've had in a handful of years.
