Ratchet Provisions Soak Merrill Lynch, Will Sink WaMu / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was just 5 days ago in Death Spiral Financing at WaMu, Merrill Lynch, Citigroup that I wrote about ratchet provisions and how they would bite companies that agreed to them. Here is the key snip: The investors in the equity raise would have their investment “protected” by a provision which states that should the bank afterwards raise money at a lower price than what they paid, these investors would be compensated retroactively by having their initial investment priced at this lower price, thereby being issued new shares for free.

US Banks in Death Spiral- Check Your Bank NOW! / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article Martin D. Weiss writes: The truth may be unthinkable, but the reality is undeniable: Much of our nation's financial structure is collapsing, and our government's only response is phony money, bogus bailouts and a litany of false promises.

Ben Bernanke, Henry Paulson, the FDIC and the U.S. Congress say they can do it all.

US Banks Going Straight to Hell on $1.5trillion Eventual Loss / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNAB, National Australia Bank, was just forced to write down over ninety percent of its exposure to US mortgages via so-called SIV's or conduits last Friday, to the order of $830 million dollars. This was by no means a matter of choice for NAB. The bank had just issued and sold $850 million worth of new debt paper. Buyers of that debt are now screaming bloody murder. They are asking why this information, which surely must have been known to the bank at the time of the debt sale, was not disclosed to the market beforehand. They are now demanding their money back or some other way to back out of the deal.

Cash Rich Non-US Companies Trading in the US / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this time of difficult credit conditions, it could make sense to evaluate companies with plenty of cash.  One way to measure cash is to subtract all liabilities and see if there is any cash left (Net Cash).

If a company has Net Cash, they could pay off any and all debts and other reported liabilities, and have money left over.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Ford motor companies stock price fell sharply by more than 10% following news of a worse than expected second quarter record loss of $8.7 billion, this follows a first quarter profit of $100 million. Ford has been witnessing a near meltdown in sales from a year earlier with auto sales down 28%, and truck sales down 36%, as following the surge in gas prices the once profitable SUV's have now become a liability by clogging up dealer forecourts with unsold inventory and thus contributing to the sales meltdown.

Beware the Stocks Bear Market Dividend Trap / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlexander Green writes: For years, investors have bemoaned the low dividend yield on stocks. But with the market down roughly 20%, the yield on the S&P 500 Index is up to 2.25%. That doesn't sound terribly rich, I know, but it is only slightly less than the average money market is paying right now. 

In the short term, you may sleep a lot better with a big chunk of money tucked safely away in cash.  But in the long run, you may lose sleep. After all, your biggest risk as an investor is not market risk - the inevitable rise and fall of your stock portfolio from week to week - but shortfall risk, the possibility that good health and steady inflation may cause you to outlive your investment portfolio.

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReuters is reporting WaMu has $3.33 bln loss, may be cut to "junk" .
Washington Mutual Inc, the largest U.S. savings and loan, posted a $3.33 billion second-quarter loss on Tuesday as souring mortgages forced it to set aside more money for loan losses.

"We are planning for continued softness in housing for the next several quarters," Chief Executive Kerry Killinger said in an interview. "The capital that we have in place is sufficient to manage through this period. We have no plans at this point to raise additional capital."

Investors Look to Earnings Season for Stock Market Trend / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Patalon III writes:Earnings season will plug along this week as reports from several banks provide the latest insight into how well the beleaguered financial-services sector is weathering the global credit-crisis storm.

Among the earnings season headlines: Bank of America Corp. ( BAC ) will be issuing its final earnings report of the pre- Countrywide Financial Corp. (CFC) merger era and investors hope that Wachovia Corp. ( WB ) follows in the recent footsteps of Citigroup Inc. ( C ) and JP Morgan's Chase & Co. ( JPM ), the latter two of which both provided better-than-expected (though certainly negative) results.

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre the financial woes of the banks over? To beat the market by investing in the stock market, you should have a good understanding of the factors that are driving the trends in the financial sector.

General Motors and Ford Increasing Probability of Permanent Meltdown / Companies / US Auto's

By: Mike_Stathis

The recent Merrill (MER) research report on General Motors (GM) should not be treated with any urgency, although I agree with the overall assessment of a potential bankruptcy. But I would also add Ford (F) into that picture. As you will recall, we heard the same thing from analysts less than three years ago only to see GM's share price more than double over the ensuing two years.

Fannie & Freddie Bailout: Truth or Consequences / Companies / US Housing

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmidst speculation that Freddie and its big brother Fannie are facing insolvency, U.S. Treasury Secretary Paulson said the primary focus was supporting Fannie and Freddie "in their current form as they carry out their important mission." Well, the fact of the matter is that “carrying out their mission” is what got them into this mess to begin with. Paulson delivered the subtle message that has been interpreted by most that he won't bail the GSEs out. But if the GSEs aren't able to raise sufficient capital, it's going to initiate a printing frenzy by Bernanke, with or without a conservatorship. Before we consider exactly what Paulson's statement means, have a look at the following excerpts I put into print in 2006.
