Don't Tell The Italian Banks They Got Bailed Out: 3 Out Of Top 4 Banks Trading Below "Bailout" Price

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Remember the European summit that was supposed to not so much bail out Europe, as stop the contagion from spreading to Italy (but mostly to send the ES highest by 40 points intraday at one point)? Well, in the credit markets the summit has failed miserably as already noted previously. Now, we see that it has also spread to the equity of those all important Italian financial companies. As the chart below shows, 3 of the top 4 Italian banks (Intesa, UniCredit, Monte Pasci, And MedioBanca) are now trading below their levels at the time of the bailout. So: rescue half life is what - 48 hours? About in line with our expectations.

I having a good laugh after visiting those Occupy Wall Street creeps over the weekend freezing their arses off in the rain and snow.

Too funny!  Now the asswipes are requesting "extreme weather survival gear for the occupation"

They are taking away resources from the homeless.  Bunch of hypocrites.

You have problem with understanding events around you. Homeless, unemployed and drug addicts are the earliest victims of the system, so they are integral part of protest.

Hard to say but this week the Bernank will have a shot at a 'bailout' so stay tuned.

What is that I see in the far distance of Rome. Seems to be a small glow, not sure, but it is getting a bit bigger as I watch it. I wonder what that could be? Hmmm.

You mean the world can't be fixed with a short document full of empty promises?  Who knew?

It makes me sick sometimes looking at the totally retarded responses of the markets to what are clearly preposterous 'Solutions' offered by TPTB to the great financial crisis.

Somebody in the Fed babbles about 'Additional Easing' but offers no concrete details about potential next steps - Hurrah!  Rally on! 

Some Euro-Clown tells us that the Euro is saved and there's nothing to worry about - Hurrah!  Rally on!

A GDP number is produced which is, upon investing 5 minutes examining the details, clearly exaggerated - Hurrah!  Rally on!

I know there is safety in following the crowd, and career risk is a major factor in their thought processes but what the F*ck do money managers actually get paid for these days?  

Are they so completely credulous that they actually buy the crap spouted by the 'Authorities' or do they just do what everyone else does?  Where are the responsible adults in this picture?

Orwell warned of this in his book.

The post-modern mind and ideas have created an inability to reason, and here is the result.  Talk to a twenty something lately about truth and how to determine what it is?  Good luck with that.

It is almost like someone planned it.  :-)

I prefer the analogy of building up tolerance to addictive drugs rather than half life.

This way it implies taking the drugs is the cause of the problem.

I think I've seen that in a movie once. When the subject is properly addicted, you can turn him/her out to the nearest whorehouse to get to work for those drugs. Makes for a healthy profit from the looks of it.

The EU plan was so poorly contructed that I cannot believe how stupid the market was. Italy is Greece last year. Within 6 months, the CAC will be 50% lower than it is now as French banks become 100% nationalized and Germany starts to prepare their exit as the ECB goes on a print-fest. 

The mere fact that a 50% haircut on Greece's bonds won't even solve Greece, yet that alone is causing almost every EU bank to scramble for liquidiy, and the EFSF already on life-support, made it clear to me that the market will buy some swamp land I have for sale in the middle of the Atlantic. As Italy becomes the new Greece, with Greece becoming something even more dismal than Greece, you can count on the fact there will be a major market swoon soon.....

If Ben doen't print on Wednesday, this fucker is going DOWN for awhile.

if the carpet under which you've been sweeping the dirt in order to hide it can't hold any more dirt...just get a bigger carpet, rest it on top of the old one and keep on sweeping.
