Bankia Gets 'Pre-Bailout' Bailout "Immediately" As Bad Loans Jump 44%

Tyler Durden's picture


With Spain's new-found belief in its own incompetence omnipotence, they are now throwing bad money after bad in advance of the European bailout by pre-bailing out (bridge recap?) Bankia via the FROB (and it seems like they are in a hurry):


which makes sense given that:

  • *BANKIA GROUP BAD LOANS RATIO 11% IN JUNE VS 7.63% IN DEC. (a 44% rise!!)

The bottomless pit will all be 'fixed' though by October (just like Dexia was?)


and just as jawboning helps:


Sublime to ridiculous... Is this just another move in the negotiation as now Spain has 'more' vested interest and therefore 'more' mutual destructive power if a banking union or mutualized benefit is not realized...

The Tragedy of the Euros - he who "prints most, deficit spends most, crashes" first wins...

Tell them to first make sure they set aside the money they need to contribute to the ESM so it can go operational.  <\sarc>

I can get their debt at a discount and deliver via the Colorado river as it flows into Mexico City. I can alternately pay you over there by that Dark Star who fell in the Dark Pool having lost his balance tripping over his bazooka.

Me too. I'm going to Tuscany for the grape harvest at the end of September. I'm hoping that they can hold things together with more non-stop bullshit until I get back.

If you have never been to Italy watch out for the beggars "and thieves", although I never had a problem with the thieves myself. Oh yes, the beautiful architecture, fields, the smells of the country side, however if you have travelled there recently their railway system is a total disaster, infrastructure is in bad shape, and the people just look beat down.

Otherwise have fun, drink some Chianti for me, best to rent a car if you plan to travel around. Love the country "and the old world people", just be aware.

Truthfully I would of thought Italy would have collapsed before Spain started to.

Anyway, Cheers

how is cotton doing, return-on-investment-wize this year?

Cotton #2 Weekly Commodity Futures Price Chart

can you find the place in time on this chart when S&P downgraded all US debt? 

can you find WHEN "operation twist" begins?

are you sure you have been given all the info about the "effects" of zirp?  what "else" do you see?   paper towels?  real towels? 

cotton is grown where?  are there geo-politics involved? a shortage of cotton?  a shortage of paper?  a shortage of bullshit? 

even spidey-towels come from the sun

so i hope yer "abyss" doesn't leave you all wet from over-exerting yourself with your your friends from the drama school today...

It is other peoples pension funds.

No loss to the people that do not actually own the funds.

You know segregated funds ,rehypothecated funds,stolen funds.
