UK Company Business Bank and Savings Account Guaranteed? / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst individual savers continue to adjust to yesterdays announcement by the Prime Minister, Gordon Brown to extend the 100% guarantee to the first £50,000 for individual savers. However this is an apt reminder that the guarantee does NOT extend much of the business sector, the consequences of which are that corporate runs on banks occur as corporate depositors which amount to some £1.2 trillion seek to immediately withdraw funds from potentially failing banks.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarketWatch is reporting U.S. Sept. ISM manufacturing index plunges to 43.5%

WASHINGTON - The nation's manufacturers cut back production at a much faster pace than expected in September, the Institute for Supply Management reported Wednesday. This is the lowest level since October 2001. The ISM index plunged to 43.5% in September from 49.9% in August. This is the biggest drop in the index since 1984. The drop surprised economists. The consensus forecast of estimates collected by Marketwatch was for the index to slip only a bit to 49.6%. Readings below 50 indicate contraction. The ISM index has been holding near 50 since the summer. The previous low this year was 48.3 in February. Economists said the ISM index was near recessionary levels.

HBOS Risk on Speculation of Lloyds TSB Takeover Bid Resistance / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The shotgun wedding at the behest of the FSA for the rescue of Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS) by Lloyds TSB less than 2 weeks ago for £12 billion at a price of £2.32 per share is coming under pressure as speculation grows that Lloyds shareholders are not happy with the price being paid for a near bankrupt mortgage bank. The current HBOS market price of £1.34 is near half of the original Lloyds TSB bid price. .

The news has not gone down well with HBOS customers who appear to have been inundating the HBOS online service which has been showing signs of cracking under the strain, an unknown number of customers which includes yours truly are being met by the following page when attempting to log-in:

Promising Upside for Pfizer / Companies / Futures Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

I have looked at dozens of charts this morning, and one that pops out at me because it looks promising on the upside is Pfizer (NYSE: PFE). Let's notice that the price structure has put in significant work around the 17.00 area in the form of double-bottom lows in May and again in Sept. Since the 9/17 low, PFE has clawed its way up the right side of the pattern and is "threatening" to climb towards a test of key resistance at 19.30 and 20.00/20 to complete and confirm the pattern. A break below 18.00 will begin to compromise the timing of the anticipated upside test of the key resistance levels.

Bradford & Bingley Nationalised Another UK Bank Wiped Out by Tulip Backed Securities / Companies / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBradford and Bingley's slow 12 month death march towards the same fate as Northern Rock finally looks set to have come to an end with expectations on Sunday that the beleaguered bank will be nationalised with a view to a break of the bank and liquidation of assets so as to cover in part the estimated £20 billion bailout cost that is required to fill the gap between assets and liabilities. The toxic mortgages will probably end up with the government owned Northern Rock bank which will increasingly be seen as the UK Governments Toxic Mortgage Dump where the tulip backed securities of further bank busts and partial bailouts will end up.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani: In Part II of his three-story investigation of the credit crisis, Money Morning Contributing Editor Shah Gilani shows us how American International Group, a perfectly sound company that's survived for 89 years, was destroyed by some errant bets on a derivative security called a “credit default swap,” or CDS. It's a story you'll read nowhere else . Editor

There's nothing fundamentally wrong with the core insurance business units of American International Group Inc. ( AIG ). Nothing at all. What imploded the venerable insurance giant was an accumulation of misplaced bets on credit default swaps.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMSN Money is reporting Buffett takes a stake in Goldman

The world's most famous investor is betting that it's time to buy into one of the battered financials. Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK.A) Oracle of Omaha Warren Buffett said late Tuesday that he is buying a $5 billion interest in Goldman Sachs (GS), one of the two investment banks left standing amid the fallout of the mortgage crisis. Berkshire Hathaway gets a perpetual preferred stock that pays a 10% annual dividend, which takes precedence over other payments to common shareholders in Goldman.

A Bounceback for the Mid-cap Energy Sector? / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Evan_Smith

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the first half of 2008, mid-cap energy stocks significantly outperformed their large-cap counterparts as investors prized the faster production growth found in many of the mid-cap names.

The trend line fell off abruptly at the beginning of July, when market sentiment for energy and other commodities underwent a dramatic change. Distressed hedge funds and other investors have scrambled for cash in the third quarter, and to get that cash, they have sold the best-performing stocks of the first half of the year -- energy stocks, and more specifically, mid-cap energy stocks that are challenged to absorb the selling pressure.

$700 Billion Banking System Bailout Profit Bonanza? / Companies / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson wites: With the exception of a few curmudgeonly old Republicans, there has been general rejoicing at U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson's $700 billion banking system bailout. Indeed, to hear some commentators you would think it was cost free - they explain joyfully that assets will only be acquired at a discount, so of course there is a good chance the taxpayer will not be out of pocket on the deal.

Institutional Greed Responsible for Financial Collapse / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: There's nothing like greed and avarice to bring the entire U.S. financial system to the brink of collapse.

With the demise of Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc. ( MER ), the thundering herd has galloped off the cliff – taking 94 years of history with it. Same, too, with Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. (OTC: LEHMQ ). Lehman's bankruptcy filing last week caps 158 years of solid history. No doubt they'll be others with American International Group Inc . ( AIG ) spreading the credit-default-swap contagion like a financial Typhoid Mary .
