Standard And Poors Reviews 37 Global Banks, Downgrades Bulk - Full List Attached

Tyler Durden's picture


Bank of America now precisely at $5.00 following an after hours downgrade from A to A-. We note that BofA's CDS widened 10bps today while MER CDS widened 18bps and notably wider (we haven't seen runs post downgrade) and we wonder how this will impact the firm's huge derivative book which was recently moved to the Bank's higher rated, and deposit backed unit for its better rating support. In fact, following such a drastic action, it is quite likely that derivatives units across the board will see counterparties scrambling to demand a far greater cash cushion for fears of the same downgrade waterfalls that took down AIG and MF Global.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services today said it reviewed its ratings on 37 of the largest financial institutions in the world by applying its new ratings criteria for banks, which were published on Nov. 9, 2011. See the Ratings List for the ratings on these banks, their core and highly strategic subsidiaries, and other subsidiaries that we took rating actions on as a result of applying our new criteria to their parents. We will review all ratings that we placed on CreditWatch within 90 days. Ratings on CreditWatch are designated as Watch Neg or Watch Pos in the list below.


We will publish individual research updates on the bank groups identified below, including a list of ratings on affiliated entities, as well as the ratings by debt type--senior, subordinated, junior subordinated, and preferred stock. The research updates will be available at  and on RatingsDirect on the Global Credit Portal. Ratings on specific issues will be available on RatingsDirect on the Global Credit Portal and


Standard & Poor's will be hosting two teleconferences to discuss the application of the newly revised criteria and the related ratings actions. See the teleconference information below the Ratings List. 

Full list of every bank and security downgraded:

economic martial law will be in full effect to prevent bank runs in the USSA.  bank holidays & withdrawal restrictions will become the new norm

My puts are happy right now, but I will cash them in soon for gold.  I think there be a lot more MF Global situations popping up with brokerages that have lost/stolen client money

if you are trading anything in this market, make sure it is money you can afford to lose.

 Speaking of confidence.  How have to like the reason S&P said they downgraded them.

 S&P is in the opinion that becasue of negative feelings about bailouts.

 There will be no more Bank Bailouts. It is really hard to believe that it was expected again.

 The new rumor is QE3 will be mostly  used to monetize bad mortgages on the banks balance sheets.

 What the hell is going on. Who runs the FED. Didn't the Bernanke say under oath, I will not monetize.

I'm thinking that large benefactors may prefer to hitch their wagons to Newt or whoever the Repubs put out (not that that's any better), rather than keep pitching money at the thankless idiot. Idiot will only stay around if he can keep delivering what the .01% want. If he can't, he'll lose in a Carter-like landslide, or-- if there are some threats/promises made-- refuse to run a la LBJ.

The S&P and Moody's and the like are regulated by the SEC. Who regulates the SEC why the US government of course! So once again S&P regulated by corrupt government agencies like the Treasury and Justice Departments, who only regulate what they want regulated and the hell with everything else even if it is illegal.

OK....BAC....Let's see here....

Over two trillion in liabilities according to the latest balance sheet.....Check!


Operating income applicable to common shares 2009 and 2010, negative......Check!


Another annual loss for 2011 so far......Check!


That makes BAC a company with over 2T in debts operating at a shareholder loss for the past three years running, and it's still worth $50B.  That is amazing, as in amazing opportunity for my puts to explode in value.

shorting FAS offers a much better return than long FAZ due to the decay inherent in these leveraged paper traders.  Going long FAZ (or FAS) is a suckers game.

Sunset, I was about to agree with you until I really thought about it.  If you short those stocks, the best you can do in an epic crash is double your money.  The long positions can up infinitly.  I also noticed that during the downswing in August, SDOW went up 65% while UDOW went down 45%.  So I think you are correct only if prices don't swing a lot.

So many people chearing for the  collapse, like one day they will be come reach.

If there is a colapse all rednecks will suffer first.

People aren't hoping or expecting to get rich. That has nothing to do with anything as far as those cheering for collapse are concerned.

Exactly.. The people that have been waiting for it all to fall apart since people thought a rolled up towel could protect you from radiation.  I am a redneck.  Trust me, when it all ends, we'll fire up the hand crank radios to enjoy the show, eat some preserves and venison, and giggle to ourselves while we count our junk silver and ammo.  Count on it.

Yep...but they're real easy to clean.

Just take em out of the bun, scrape the tarter or mayo off and the bones just dissolve away...its PFM ;-)

I don't see anyone cheering fucktard. I see folk preparing. I bet your gay ass doesn't even know where the word "Redneck" comes from. Its not an insult, its a compliment. Google= "Coal Field war, Redneck, WV". And if/when it comes we'll be stacking useless cowardly urban cunts like cordwood. Here's a hint...

Nice how the S and P site says things are bullish. 

Have we ever had all the major banks and countries downgraded before?

We've always been at war with Eurasia.

230+ million American's spent an average of $400 each over the Thanksgiving weekend for a total in excess of $50 billion and a debate over extending and expanding the payroll tax deduction is under debate in Congress for a Friday vote while banks are in a state of collapse and QE3 looms large. 

Meanwhile, 45+ million American's are deemed to be deserving of food stamps, including a virtual majority of those living in Alabama, as the total federal debt approaches the $15.2t ceiling due to an annual budget deficit of far more than $1 trillion with an inability to even make cuts to expenses 10 years in the future.     

With a total population of about 310 million, what's wrong with this picture?
