22 Luminaries (And Dick Bove) Sign Open Letter To Fed Demanding End Of QE2





As if the rest of the world telling Ben Bernanke he has finally flipped, was not enough, here comes the opposition from within, after 23 public figures, among which economists, financiers, hedge fund managers and Dick Bove (not sure what he is) have sent an open letter to the Bernank demanding QE2 be immediately pulled. With the imminent market collapse that would follow such an action we are not surprised to see Jim Chanos among the list of signatories, although that long-biased Paul Singer of Elliott Associates would endorse such a contrary to his interests letter, is interesting to say the least.

Dick Bove Says Chance Of Double Dip Is Now 40-60%, Butchers JPM Earnings And Jamie Dimon





Something is rotten in the state of Rochdale. One of the most bullish banking analysts ever, Dick Bove, just crucified not only JP Morgan's earnings report, but also said Jamie Dimon "missed it completely on housing", and lastly, has turned extremely bearish on the overall economy, saying there is a 40-60% chance for a double dip, which at last check is probably more bearish than David Rosenberg. Bove throws up all over JPM "good" results, stating it is all a function of loan loss reductions, which the bank is in no way entitled to take at this point, when there is so much negative macro data piling up. As NPLs are likely to continue deteriorating in the future, should the economy weaken further, JPM would have to not only replenish existing accounting gimmicks such as boosting Net Income via balance sheet trickery, but to put even more cash to preserve a viable capitalization ratio. As Bove is the quintessential contrarian indicator, we are preparing for a month long sabbatical to a Buddhist monastery in Tibet to thoroughly reevaluate our perspectives on the universe.

Dick Bove Cuts Goldman Price Target From $200 To $182





For the three dumbest money mutual fund managers who still listen to this "analyst", this is probably news. He also cuts the company's EPS estimates. The four main risks he sees to GS are: European debt situation, weak current business environment, lack of formal regulation bill, and SEC civil lawsuit. And that's all the time we'll dedicate to Dick "Buy Lehman" Bove.

Dick Bove's "Unique Research Product" No Longer To Be Used As Bathroom Reading Following Crack Down On Illicit Distribution





Apparently someone in the world cares about Dick Bove's prophetic effluvium. Either that, or the worst contraindicator in the stock market (buy Lehman, 'nuf said) believes that nowadays, (following in the footsteps of other financial pundits), it is much better to be famous for being famous, than for being right, or in Dick Bove's case, wrong. Either way, for those who actually seem to derive stock trading advice out of intellectual titans like Bove et al, your lives are above to get much more difficult, as Bove is about to go RIAA on your ass. Whatever happened to Bove's threat that he would be providing instanalysis much less (and many hoped, not at all) after his disastrous read of Wells results earlier got him in hot water following a CNBC appearance. For an even playing field, it only makes sense that Dick Bove no longer publishes or "analyzes" anything anymore, period.

Dick Bove's Instamath Gets Him In Trouble, Will No Longer Grace TVs With "Instant Analysis" Presence





As Zero Hedge pointed out first, yesterday Dick Bove performed what should be a FINRA or SEC punishable act, by first pumping the stock of Wells Fargo live on pumpathon central CNBC, and subsequently downgrading it, causing a major market selloff. Today, Bove tries to backtrack and explains the foolishness of his actions, while telling all those stupid enough to follow his recommendations that he will no longer be providing "immediate earnings commentary" (whatever the hell that is) on air. If his "less than immediate commentary," such as his Buy call on Lehman weeks before the bank filed for bankruptcy, is any indication, perhaps Mr. Bove should consider dropping the "commentary" business period.

Dick Bove States "Wells Fargo Is Proving Itself To Be A Standout" Nine Hours Before He Downgrades To A Sell





Can someone please explain why Mr. Bove noted on CNBC that Wells Fargo is proving "itself to be a standout" in the banking industry (2:30 into the clip), that it would help push the market higher, and that is it the big winner in today's earnings derby, a mere nine hours before he ends up downgrading the company to a SELL? Perhaps, the SEC can advise on that particular conundrum.

Dick Bove Out With A "Buy" Rating On Wall Street Integrity, A Year After A Comparable Call On Lehman





If you thought the entire investing world had lost sight of Dick Bove after his Buy recommendation on Lehman stock on August 21, 2008... You were right. Which is why Dick can not contain his excitement at seeing media exposure after someone still apparently cares what the Rochdale analyst has to say.

If Dick Bove Prognosticates In A Forrest And Nobody Cares, Did Dick Bove Prognosticate





-Bove revises Citigroup shr view to USD 0.14 from USD 0.13 for 2010, to USD 0.34 from USD 0.32 in 2011
-Bove sees USD 11bln Q2 gain from Smith Barney venture with Morgan Stanley
-Bove rates Citigroup buy

But again, when CNBC makes fun of you, have fun supergluing the few micro pieces of credibility you may find shattered on the floor.

David Faber Openly Ridicules Dick Bove





Everyone else does, why should David be an exception. Fast fwd to 2:20 - "You want a good laugh, take a look at Dick Bove's latest report." Dick - when CNBC makes fun of you for smoking the "shutes" you know you have reached a new low on the propaganda pole. At least that DC advisory job beckons - better make use of it quick. The next election is in just over 3 years.

Dick Bove Claims Nationalization Of Bank System Would Triple US Debt, Crush Dollar





Fresh out of Rochdale, the disgruntled former Ladenburg employee and Bank of America cheerleader claims that a wholesale nationalization of all Lewis, Vikram et al. toxic assets would blow out US sovereign debt to $30 trillion, kill the dollar and maybe even lead to an accidental crossing of the streams.
