GE and Berkshire Credit Rating Downgrades / Companies / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNilus Mattive writes: Last week saw two publicly-traded companies lose their AAA credit ratings. That might not sound like a lot … until you realize that there were only seven to start with!

First, Standard & Poor's downgraded General Electric on March 12. Then, later the same day, Fitch took Berkshire Hathaway down a notch, too.

Two Bank Stocks to Buy Right Now / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Although we're still in the middle of the worst financial crisis in decades, a few select banks are positioned to make a boatload of profits. And if you pick the right ones, gains of 100% or more are easily within reach.

The U.S. Federal Reserve's actions in cutting short-term interest rates to almost zero - together with a gentle rise in U.S. Treasury bond yields since the start of the year - have given us a steeply sloping yield curve, where long-term rates are about 3% above short-term rates.

The Banking Crisis, What Really Happened from 2001 to 2007 / Companies / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMJ writes: All magic tricks have at there core simple devices to perform the illusion; mirrors, sleight of hand and misdirection. Money is a store of wealth or its worthless paper. In an electronic world it's a byte. The wealth was spent and the money gone well before late 2007 and it was spent by bankers on themselves. The rest is misdirection. The idea that Bankers create wealth or can bring productivity to the economic cycle is an illusion.

Healthcare System Overhaul, Buy or Sell Biotechnology Stocks / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe tidal wave of changes driven by initiatives from the Obama administration and Congress is causing investors to abandon well thought out strategies. On Thursday, February 26, 2009, the Obama released more details of their 2010 budget proposal calling for access to cheaper generic versions of biotechnology drugs as a way to pay for an overhaul of healthcare. Investors reacted to the news by aggressively selling the biotechnology sector, with the S&P SPDR Biotechnology ETF (XBI) falling $5.07 from $51.35 to $46.28 in two days. Is this a sign of further weakness in the sector, or is it a buying opportunity for the biotechnology firms and the generic firms?

Citigroup Reports Profits Whilst Banks Continue to Go Bankrupt / Companies / Credit Crisis 2009

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week Citigroup shocked Wall Street by announcing that the company would be profitable in the current quarter. At the same time, the Obama Administration indicated that it would be unlikely to nationalize American banks, preferring to provide low cost funding to encourage the private sector to buy distressed assets from the banks. The two developments sparked a vigorous rally in financial stocks, which had been drifting downward for weeks, caught in what appeared to be an unending death spiral. But have the good times really returned?

What the Citigroup Share Conversion Might Really Mean / Companies / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe learned on February 27 th of the Treasury's plan to convert up to $25 billion of their $45 billion preferred Citigroup shares to common equity. According to the company, the existing shareholders would be diluted by 74%. Thus, the taxpayers will cease collecting dividends on their holdings and they'll slide down the capital structure in Citigroup to the lowest rung on the ladder. Ostensibly, it looks like a good deal for the bank and not such a great deal for the government/taxpayer.

Lloyds TSB Nationalisation End Game, Another £280 Billion of Tax Payer Liability / Companies / Nationalization

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe government is about to announce the defacto nationalisation of Lloyds TSB as capital of £5 billion is expected to be converted / injected into the bank that takes the governments real stake to 75% (officially 65%). On top of this the government will guarantee an estimated £275 billion of the banks bad debts which will be dumped onto the tax payer by means of the Asset Protection Scheme. It was less than 2 weeks ago that the government committed £400 billion for the insurance of toxic securities, which according to my calculations has so far already committed £325 billion to RBS for its toxic securities, therefore we are well north of the £400 billion limit. The toxic debt insurance scheme is akin to getting your car insured AFTER you have crashed it.

Bankrupt European Banks Sitting on $23 Trillion of Impaired Assets / Companies / Euro-Zone

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we look at the European bank markets through the eyes of my London partner Niels Jensen, head of Absolute Return Partners. I continue to believe that this is a brewing crisis which could have far more significant implications for the global economy than the Asian Crisis of 1998. In this week's Outside the Box, Niels has compiled a sobering set of data that suggests that only massive government involvement in Europe on a scale that is unprecedented will keep the wheels from coming off in Europe and the global economy.

As General Motors Goes, So Goes the Nation / Companies / US Auto's

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeneral Motors was founded in 1908 in Flint , Michigan and grew to be the largest corporation in the world. Its market capitalization reached $50 billion in 2000. In the past week its market capitalization dropped below $1 billion to levels last seen during the 1920's. The story of General Motors is the story of America . In 1953, at the peak of its dominance, its President Charles Wilson declared before Congress that what was good for the country was good for GM and vice versa. Its rise to power and decline towards insolvency parallel the rise and fall of the Great American Republic.

Goldman Sachs and Financials XLF: A Tale of Two Charts / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Kingsley_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGenerally, stocks in the same industry move together. If airline stocks are trending higher, logic would dictate each of the stocks within the group should be moving higher as well. Now, some may move faster and higher than others, those are the best in breed. Sometimes, but rarely, a stock will not move at all. These are usually the “cheap” stocks that some may call a value play.
