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 .

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a morning press statement Lloyds TSB confirmed its accepted bid for Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS) formerly Britain's biggest mortgage bank for £12 billion ($21 billion) or £2.32 pence per share in a all stock deal, following yesterday morning near collapse in the share price of HBOS which had witnessed a sustained assault by hedge fund speculators over 3 days that had wiped out more than 66% of the banks value from £2.85 last Friday to just 90p Wednesday morning, following on from the weekends Lehman's bankruptcy and AIG nationalisation.

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.

( 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.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

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.
