I guess I am "moving towards lower beta stock" but I don't really have to do anything to achieve that, the companies are doing it for me ...

Quite a bit of "deleveraging" going on ...

Speaking of Numura, this was a headline about a year ago.

Nomura extends global reach with Lehman acquisitions

It is currently trading at ca. $6.46.

HIV Vaccine Study May Lift Hopes After Merck, Sanofi Setbacks

By Simeon Bennett and Jason Gale

Sept. 23 (Bloomberg) -- The search for a vaccine to prevent HIV has eluded scientists for a quarter of a century. They will find out if they are a step closer when the results of the world’s largest HIV vaccine trial are presented tomorrow.
The U.S.-funded study of 16,000 volunteers involves a vaccine that combines two older shots developed by Sanofi- Aventis SA and VaxGen Inc.
While scientists aren’t holding out for a major breakthrough, they are hopeful the data will give them some indication that they are heading in the right direction, said Marie-Paule Kieny, director of the World Health Organization’s Initiative for Vaccine Research in Geneva.
The results presented in Bangkok may be the first turning point since 2007, when an attempt by Whitehouse Station, New Jersey-based Merck & Co. was terminated after the shot appeared to boost people’s chances of becoming infected. It was one of several fizzled attempts to slow the spread of AIDS, which infects about 6,800 new people every day.
“I don’t think there is a lot of expectation that the efficacy of this vaccine will be very high,” Kieny said in a telephone interview from Oxford, England. “Any hint towards identifying something which is protective in humans would be good news.”
The Thai study looked at whether different infection- fighting strategies devised by Paris-based Sanofi and VaxGen could be combined in a two-pronged approach.

Sector Snap: HIV vaccine developers

Associated Press, 09.24.09, 12:39 PM EDT

NEW YORK -- Shares of several companies developing potential HIV vaccines were little changed in reaction to Thursday's announcement from researchers that they may be on track for a breakthrough HIV vaccine.
The World Health Organization and the U.N. agency UNAIDS said a combination of two previously unsuccessful vaccines cut the risk of becoming infected with HIV by more than 31 percent in the world's largest AIDS vaccine trial. The study involved more than 16,000 volunteers in Thailand.
The U.S. Army sponsored the study with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The study involved the drugs ALVAC, from Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccine division of French drugmaker Sanofi-Aventis ( SNY - news - people ), and AIDSVAX, originally developed by VaxGen Inc. The latter drug is now held by Global Solutions for Infectious Diseases, a nonprofit founded by some former VaxGen employees.

You & your upward CAPs score amazes me.  Only other player that hits me at that level is BravoBevo.

Major props. 

Thanks for the Alstry-like aggregate of information on your point of further issuance!  Heh.  Thanks for bringing up the point of Nomura's acquisitions of Lehman assets in the past.  Interesting & worthy to take a look. 

On the subject of banks, what are your thoughts on the small or tiny banks?  Could you possibly provide any criticisms or insight on the blog post I just put up.  Or too boring for you? ;)
