Credit Crisis Truth: The Real Story Behind the Collapse of AIG / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

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.

Bernanke's Confidence Trick Game / Companies / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Shedlock

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 .

Hedge Funds Crash Halifax, HBOS Rescued by Lloyds TSB / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHedge funds over the last 3 days have been in relentless pursuit of Britain's biggest mortgage bank, Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS) as the next bank to be pushed over the credit crisis and housing bear market cliff, amidst an atmosphere of global defaults in the wake of Lehman's collapse on Sunday. In emergency action both sanctioned and sponsored by the Bank of England saw Lloyds TSB step in to buy the Bank before the Government was forced to step in and rescue the bank much as happened following the Northern Rock bust in September 2007. Only at that time the Bank of England in a huge unforgivable blunder that destroyed much of the central banks credibility, PREVENTED Lloyds TSB from taking over Northern Rock.

AIG Bailout and Federal Reserve Act Loophole 13.3 / Companies / Nationalization

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn light of the Fed sponsorship of AIG to the tune of $85 billion or more at taxpayer risk (See Nationalization of AIG: Treasury to get 80% stake in return for $85 billion ), inquiring minds just might be asking "By what authority can the Fed lend to insurance companies?"

It's a good question given that the Fed is widely thought to be authorized to lend only to banks. It turns out the Fed can lend to pizza parlors if it wants to, with a questionable interpretation of the Federal Reserve Act.

Surviving the Credit Crisis Chaos / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Kurt_Kasun

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week when I wrote, “ Extraordinary Measures Today, a Financial Funeral Tomorrow ,” I didn't literally think that the funeral would actually occur ‘tomorrow'. Someone started the financial Armageddon clock when the ratings agencies downgraded AIG this evening and the Fed told AIG that they were on their own to raise capital. It was reported on CNBC that they have until Wednesday to secure $75 billion or risk being forced to declare bankruptcy--setting off the most nightmarish of scenarios.

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.
