ANALists say CIT needs 6 Billion, gubermint stress test had figured 4 Billion in worst case scenario some weeks ago.

 

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=206...id=acxdfpkxaB5c

 

"CIT Group Inc. bondholders are holding calls today to discuss whether to swap some of their claims for equity to reduce the 101-year-old lender’s indebtedness, according to a person familiar with the situation.

 

Pacific Investment Management Co., CIT’s largest bondholder based on regulatory filings, plans to host a call, and debt owners are considering hiring financial and legal advisers"

 

Had no idea PIMPCO was a major bagholder on this one.

 

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=206...id=a0kAlJZXFtzQ

 

I am guessing they loaded up when they saw CIT in trouble and were hoping/counting on US Taxpayers to pay them big bucks. Didn't they do the same with USTreas/FNM/FRE? I that case they did make a lot of dough.

Subject: Latest Directive from 10 Downing Street

 

 

Subject: The PM's New Directive.

 

 

 

 

 

10 Downing Street

London SW1

 

 

Dear People of the United Kingdom

 

Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown of the

economy, your Government has decided to implement a scheme to put

workers 50 years of age and older on early retirement. This scheme

will

be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early).

 

Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the government to be

eligible

for the SHAFT scheme (Special Help After Forced Termination).

 

Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the

SCREW

program (Scheme Covering Retired Early Workers). A person may be

RAPED

once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as the government deems

appropriate.

 

Only persons who have been RAPED can get AIDS (Additional Income for

Dependants & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel

Early Severance). Obviously, persons who have AIDS or HERPES will

not be

SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by the government.

 

Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on, will receive as much

SHIT

(Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The government has

always

prided itself in the amount of SHIT it gives out. Should you feel

that

you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of

your local MP. They have been trained to give you all the SHIT you

can

handle.

 

Sincerely,

 

Gordon Brown

Some day, any day now, gold will pop limit up and all the dinars will dump equities and bolt to PM's.

 

I know this will happen.

 

I really do.

 

Really.

 

Any day now.

 

Just you wait ... :angry:

They upped guidance and said that they can continue to wring costs out and increase their profitability (despite declining top line revenues).

 

With employers experiencing a glut of electrical engineers and similar disciplines as well as bountiful Indian and other workers in the Asian regions at lower costs, it is a great time to be a capitalist in these times of recession.

Something of note happened today in EM bond land.

 

The JPM EMBI+ index rose to an all time high. Well, at least since it began in 1993.
