Oh, come on!


It is clear now that this is just another BUBBLE.

Every year, so I read somewhere, thousands of people die in America only from ordinary, human flu.

This is definitely a god-given manipulation and fear mongering in order to cover up another grand scale theft of trillions of dollars. It's getting so obvious.

U.S. bank, flu fears chill stabilization hopes
www.reuters.com...

LONDON/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Fears about a possible global flu crisis and renewed worries over the capital health of some U.S. banks combined on Tuesday to rattle economists' hopes the financial system was stabilizing.

The Wall Street Journal reported regulators told Citigroup Inc (C.N) and Bank of America Corp (BAC.N) they needed to raise billions of dollars more in capital following "stress tests" of banks' ability to withstand the economic crisis.

"The flu story and the story on Citi and Bank of America have spooked the whole market," CMC Markets analyst James Hughes said, talking about foreign exchange trading.

Bair Looks Beyond Tests, Says FDIC Needs Power to Close Holding Companies
www.bloomberg.com...

April 28 (Bloomberg) -- Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Chairman Sheila Bair, looking beyond stress tests that will determine the health of the top 19 U.S. banks, said her agency should have the authority to close even the biggest lenders.

The “too-big-to-fail concept” should be “tossed into the dustbin,” and the FDIC should have the power to close “systemically important” financial firms, Bair said in a New York speech yesterday. “Given our many years of experience resolving banks and closing them, we’re well-suited to run a new resolution program,” she said.

Analysts are recalibrating their estimates of the results of the federal bank examinations after the government announced the test methodology last week. Lenders were given preliminary results on April 24 and have time to discuss them with regulators before the full readings are released on May 4.

Yes that is rigth but while we have been inundated by the news of the "pandemic" it has gone unnoticed that Geithner is asking another 500 billion plus for the banks.

Still this only shows that the so call "banks stress test" may have been worst that speculated, not wonder it has not been released yet.

Now that is "new" to me, they are losing 400 billion? and where the so call "profits" are coming from.

Still the credit card, prime mortgage and commercial real state default figures are starting to become dangerous and the government is aware of it.

Those are all loses.

We are waiting to see if the Camaro finally makes its debut and if GM will hold until then and perhaps go from there, I love the new Camaro.

BTW you look great!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sitting here dumbfounded. How the market stays up when housing prices are still declining, Japan revised their GDP lower and uncertainty about banks are coming back into the system, and bond defaults rise is beyond me. Makes one curious.

Yep...I'm a Mustang girl,also have a 66'...
SO much news this am,need to get off my a** and get physical to ease the stress!
Betting the "drug companies" will start pulling some proverbial rabbits out of their sleeves right about now for profit!
Going to be a wild couple of days ahead I think and it's pouring rain here to add to the gloom and doom,LOL!

Update: I"m reading around like the Energizer Bunny and honestly? This entire flu-drama is starting to STINK of politics and profit like everything else out there right now...add in a hefty dose of diversion and voila!
You've got yourself a stew that will feed the masses for quite a while to come.
I'm still "cautious" about it all but it's like somepne pushed the available info off a ramp into outer space this am and all I'm reading is that the "finger pointing" has started!

Today 89,000 BAC May 11 dollar calls have traded today. Wow. Maybe someone is betting BAC is going back over 11 again?

11 calls are only .30 so maybe shorts are buying them? Or people who bought more expensive puts are buying them?

Rep Frank sees banks TARP-free in a year
www.reuters.com...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. banking system could be free of government money within a year, the powerful chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Financial Services Committee said on Tuesday.

Representative Barney Frank, a Democrat from Massachusetts, said it would be "good for public confidence" if large banks repay funds from the government's $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program, noting he had a difference of opinion with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.

"We're hoping there won't be any government funds in banks a year from now," Frank told the Reuters Global Financial Regulation Summit.

I don't understand why the government is blatantly lying about the health of the banks. If there are problems down the road it will just hurt things worse and hurt more people (since they put their money in harms way).

Whatever. You have to give whoever came up with this scheme a lot of props. They effectively made it possible for banks to raise private capital without totally tanking the industry when just 6 weeks ago media outlets did not stop talking about how banks would collapse. Whoever made it up is the Karl Rove of finance and accounting.

Dendreon (DNDN) had their stock run from 2.5 to 25 on hopes that their cancer drug that uses the patient's immune system to fight the cancer will be approved (studies demonstrated that it worked). Today the FDA is coming out with a report on it, the shares of DNDN went down 45% (and even more earlier) and trading shares have been halted by the NASDAQ in fear that it will create a panic. Shares will resume trading after Dendreon's conference call. I think it is either after the bell (AH) or will resume in pre market tomorrow.
