Don't let some liars on TV convince you that "no one saw it coming".

Plenty of people did, especially here in Fooldom.

Look at the My Top Bear pitch on Citibank

From $21.17 to $2.14 a share.

All our times have come
Bear Sterns but now they're gone
Investment Banks don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
Citibank can be like they are

Come on Citibank... Don't fear the Reaper
Citibank take my hand... Don't fear the Reaper
Your to big to fly... Don't fear the Reaper
With Helicopter Ben...

LTCM is done
Bear Sterns but now they're gone
Bear Sterns and JP Morgan
Are together in eternity...
Bear Sterns and JP Morgan

3,960 bankruptcies everyday... Like AHM and NetBank
3,960 bankruptcies everyday... Redefine happiness
Another 3,960 coming everyday...Citibank can be like they are

Come on Citibank... Don't fear the Reaper

Citibank take my hand... Don't fear the Reaper
Your to big to fly... Don't fear the Reaper
With Helicopter Ben...

Leveraged 32 to 1
Bear Sterns but now they're gone
BSC the last night of over leverage
And it was clear Bear Sterns couldn't go on
Then the door was open and the FED appeared
The Helicopter Ben blew then disappeared
The curtains flew then JP Morgan appeared
Saying don't be afraid

Come on Citibank... And Bear Sterns had no fear
And Bear Sterns took their January bonuses... Then they started to fly
They looked backward and said goodbye
Bear Sterns had become like they are
Bear Sterns had taken their bonuses
Bear Sterns had become like they are

Come on Citibank...don't fear the reaper

Seriously, they bought CFC and "merged" with MER and unloaded a bunch of common stock on some poor smuck common stock holders.

Either way you would have to be an uber idiot or gambling junkie in need of a "fix" to be the common stock bagholder here.

My pitch on BAC on 1/11/08:

Pitch by: demondoug 1/11/08 1:38 PMReply | Report this postWhen LEND got bought out by a hedge fund type business last year, my score on LEND got killed. That company's intrinsic value was less than zero. Unfortunately, on CAPS we cannot short stupid moneyed hedge funds. However, we can indeed short stupid money insanely large banks. The deal that BAC is making for CFC is the absolute worst deal for BAC, although I believe that they are likely getting some favors in terms of the Federal Reserve and some likely tax breaks and/or government contracts. However, even with favors and favorable governmental policies towards your company, you need to execute your business plan. In this case? BAC's business plan is going to execute them.
