Even the squid will go DVA
Apparently God's work ain't as profitable as it used to be.
Any parasite that kills its host is also doomed.
Hosts are starting to identify the ticks though and are pinching them a bit here and there. For instance, Anon posted Vikram Pandit's personal cell phone number in response to Citi recently arresting depositors that wished to closed their accounts.
Here's to hoping GS loses eleventy dollars per share
They also posted a bunch of GS contact info on pastebin.com bout a month ago..
My thoughts are that they HAVE to report a loss to make them look like they are NOT the rulers of the world (re: That BBC interview a couple of weeks back).
This is to placate the masses no doubt.
(although, what do I know)
My first thought as well. They can take cover for a while and let the rest of the banks take the fire. See it's not really crony capitalism we had a loss this quarter.
I expect it's a feint. frontloading losses.
Maybe...three years ago I would have agreed, but playing three card monte everyday of every hour by law of average cause the house to lose eventually.
The "hedge" is an illusion.
Goldman make the weather they don't need a forecaster.
GS share price will fall. However, to cover their shitty performance, they will take the whole market down this week so that they come out looking like the best horse horse in the glue factory.
Seriously, if GS expects their shares to take a hit, they will simply tilt the momentum down and profit from it.
Thanks Jonan. ;-)
Even the US will go down - median income: $22,500 per person/45000 per house-hold.
That's FIAT money - without any gold or real production to back it.
Knox is empty - and so are US factories - and homes.
Yes, EVEN the US itself IS going down.
they dva with the best of them
How can the entity that rules the world, lose money?
Oh, yes... i forgot... it's not money they are really interested in.
could also be a a sort of PR campaign, human touch etc. Like tyrants who let themselves photograph with cute little children around, like Hitler, Stalin, Franco etc..
Thats right, totaly contrary to what most everyone believes, they dont give a shit about MONEY at all.
It's a PR stunt. They put all their moneymaking deals off the books.
Thank you for that FMB. I've also noticed that most everyone thinks the big banks want money, but if we, the mortals, know money is not worth the paper it's printed on, what makes anyone think the people who actually create it value it at all? What they want with money is for you to have it, prefferably much more than you can afford to repay, and loose it. Then they own your ass.
Money is to banks what a chain is to slavery.
No Christmas at goldman.
Surely the financial world IS staring the apocalypse in the face. This time it IS different.
DVA isn't a choice, so stop calling it a gimmick.
Lol ... yeah and all audits are honest, competent, penetrating and untarnished... Just ask Anderson.
Suspension of Mark to Market also isn't a choice.... oh wait.
Luckily, the FASB is completely independent and pristinely untouched by banking interests.

Gosh, honest all you well meaning crazies in the OWS park encampment, we are not bad guys who are raping America and the world. See, we can prove it. We lost money this quarter and will only be taking home on the avergae $600k per employee (secretaries and janitors included) this year.
Now go focus your attacks on those other guys, the bad banks.
Next up in this sympathy-baiting trend: Goldman hires Blythe Masters and re-names itself 'Silverwoman'
Exactly, GS is outsmarting the other banks again. This is great PR. The other banks don't realize this is the point to dial down the corruption so that OWS doesn't have anything to complain about (OWS still does but the dumb traditional news won't be able to figure it out if they see EPS loss and they'll just paint OWS as a bunch of commies). Then once OWS is completely discredited, blow the door off the hinges and steal everything that's not tied down. Goldman FTW!
One thing is certain: Ferrari dealerships will not be happy come Christmas as bonuses this year will be poor to quite poor, if any.
Does this mean I can finally start shorting pos stocks like Tiffanys?
well, according to as it goes over the last weeks, id rather go ueberlong on everything that looks shitty
That's a nice rack there Angry.
Actualy Ferrari might do quite well. The banksters were trying to move upmarket to Bugatti and the new Bentley so they might just have to settle for a Ferrari instead.
take the precious from gollum and all you have left is man sachs.
the precious is really power... money (or fiat) is just the means to that end.
Funny how the stock market is taking a huge dump today but commodities are holding on pretty strong. On past days oil would have been down $2 or more.
I also liked all the stories how gasoline prices needed to jump $.30 since last week because oil rose from $75 to $85. Oil hit $75 for what less than 12 hours?
The bend you over a log brigade is out in full force. That is your Christmas present this year.
All those long EUR calls finally catch up. Their Forex calls vary between dismal & abysmal. Their clients are all on the sidelines with prolapsed sphincters.
Yo Tex! If DVA isn't a gimmick, I expect that the next time we bank CDS spreads come in that the TBTF piece's of shit will take a CHARGE against earnings.....
they will and they do
you can not even close your bank account on these devils
as one commenter so aptly put it- i bet you could be a protester and a customer if you had a deposit for them
Seeing as GS has been a bank holding company for a few years now does anyone know where I can open my GS checking account?
You opened it at birth... Auto-deposit, withdrawal by committee.
C'mon, I know we all hate GS but do you really expect them to come in below the street???
It's almost rigged. They will beat estimates and Lloyd will have a very Merry Christmas (even if he is Jewish)...
massive trading profits on the last vapor ramp?
From front pocket to back pocket? I dont know, trading thin air doesnt seem too substantial to me.
going to make for a long Hannukah
