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.

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.

Latest FDIC US Banking Systems Report Reads Like a Horror Novel / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008
