FDIC quietly shuts 4 more banks

February 14, 2009 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: XLF , FAZ , KRE

Yet another late Friday-night FDIC closure announcement. Evidently the U.S. head-in-sand department has decreed that all such unpleasant announcements should be made when the least people will read them:   [more]
