Wall Street Bargains Amongst Decimated and Bankrupt Banks / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Patalon III writes: In one of its wildest and weirdest stretches ever, Wall Street entered a weekend awaiting a government bailout of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. ( LEH ) and exited with Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc. ( MER ) agreeing to sell itself to Bank of America Corp. ( BAC ) for nearly $50 billion – and Lehman announcing it will seek bankruptcy in a bid to avoid a total liquidation after it was unable to find a buyer.

The Fall of Lehman and the Terrible Lessons of Bear Stearns / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe weekend has brought us events that can only be described in large, over-the-top terms. The Fed agreeing to take equity on its balance sheet? How bad can things really be? Clearly much worse than most people thought last Friday. Moral Hazard has been re-introduced as Lehman is allowed to go down. I will admit to being surprised. I thought Paulson and Bernanke would put it in the too big too fail category. I think they did the right thing by refusing taxpayer money for a bailout, but it is clearly going to roil the credit markets for weeks and months. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts.

Hedge Funds Target Halifax, HBOS as Shares Crash 30% / Companies / UK Banking

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFollowing on from the collapse of Lehman Brothers during the weekend, the financial sector was expected to be hit hard and to drag the overall market lower by some 5%. Whilst most of the big UK banks experienced falls in the order of 15%, Britain's biggest mortgage bank, Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS) crashed by over 30% as clearly hedge funds targeted the bank as a candidate for financial collapse, along the lines of Northern Rocks bank bust in Sept 07.

Bank of America, Merrill Bailout Disguised as Buyout? / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBank of America's buyout of Merrill Lynch seemed laughable to me - that is until I realized the full picture. With a $50 billion all-stock deal valued at $29 per share, at first glance it might appear that Bank of America doesn't stand to lose much considering its stock is at least 50% overvalued by my analysis. However, even at an adjusted price of $25 billion, Bank of America will be responsible for absorbing all of Merrill's losses. Good luck. But wait. They don't need luck, they have the Fed.

Bank of America and Merrill Lynch: Another Fed Sponsored Shotgun Marriage / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

It's all over for Lehman. Action in the main poker room action has stopped. None of the players wants to bet a penny on the Lehman pot. Indeed, Lehman Prepare For Bankruptcy as Buyers Withdraw .

This is a realization the pot is worthless. Nonetheless, expect to hear clowns screaming about "naked shorts" wrecking Lehman just as they screamed the same nonsense about Bear Stearns.

No Bailout for Lehman as Fed Awakens to Bond Market Crash Risk / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy Fridays commentary closed with expectations that the weekend would see the formerly worlds fourth largest investment bank, Lehman's Brothers taken over by one or a consortium of bidders at mere peanuts of its former valuation further sweetened by a healthy subsidy from the US government / central bank. However the noises emanating from Hank Paulson at the US Treasury department over the weekend of having drawn a line against an effective bailout of the bankrupt investment bank, this will not live up to bidder expectations of providing tens of billions of tax payers money so as to enable a relatively risk free takeover by other banks, this therefore results in suitors in advanced talks such as Barclays now declaring their withdrawal from a possible weekend bid for the bank and indicates that Lehman's is now heading directly towards bankruptcy.

Lehman Brothers Dead Bank Walking Seeking Rescue / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFollowing the bust off Bear Stearns back in March 2008, the US investment bank that next topped the list of most likely to follow Bear Stearns into financial oblivion was Lehman Brothers. Lehman Brothers was America's 4th biggest bank that has seen its share price collapse by more than 70% in recent days, and more than 90% over the last 12 months. The bank over the last few weeks has been desperately seeking to sell off many of its assets ahead of this weeks results so as to reinforce its balance sheet, however losses still came in at the worst end of expectations with a further write down of $8 billion of assets resulting in a loss of $4 billion.

How to Profit from the Fannie and Freddie Bailout / Companies / Nationalization

By: Money_Morning

Martin Hutchinson writes: The second of two parts analyzing the upside and downside of the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac bailout. Part I appeared yesterday (Tuesday).]

Between the U.S. Treasury Department's weekend bailout of Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) Fannie Mae ( FNM ) and Freddie Mac ( FRE ) – and Monday's bullish market reaction – you'd think the $5.4 trillion deal had no downside risk at all.

Investors Hit by Fannie/Freddie “Rescue” Plan / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Many of the largest financial institutions - including banks, insurance companies and mutual funds - own huge blocks of Fannie Mae ( FNM ) and Freddie Mac ( FRE ) shares.

Still, millions of investors who thought they were "safe" from this whole bailout mess because they didn't own Fannie or Freddie directly might get blindsided anyway. The reason: These investors may have indirect ownership in one or both of the two mortgage miscreants, thanks to shares held in their mutual funds, 401(k) plans, pension funds or annuities.

Forces Driving the Credit Crunch / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: The credit crunch. We all know it's here, and that it's impacting virtually every corner of the financial markets. But a lot of investors don't really understand how a crunch really works ... why it's so insidious ... and why the Feds' efforts to ease the logjam have been largely ineffective.

So let me try to get at the heart of the matter today. It boils down to two key forces ...
