    I too cast a yea vote for Lewis.  Imagine having Bernanke and Paulson pressuring you to help avert a run on the banks.  Who would want that.  Now you have a 50 something million retirement and are in your sixties, why not leave…

    Sheesh. I run off and play hooky and the world falls apart. GM axes the Saturn division, Ken Lewis resigns, and the .DJI sells off 350 points.

    Looks like the technical pullback that Plato and I blabbed about a week or two ago and the question I’ve got to puzzle out is how much value is there to buy or do I get greedy and hope the sky keeps falling.

    That’s what you get from running off - or playing hooky!  tongue laugh

    I was surprised that BAC didn’t go up after getting rid (or almost) of that looser Lewis! But I guess even BAC couldn’t defy the strong market gravity! I hope we correct more - first I think it is healthy and was overdue, and secondly I am still holding puts!  :-D

    Contrary to conventional wisdom, I like Lewis. The weekend meeting over how to backstop Lehman and the rest of the I-banks resulted in John Thain offering Ken Lewis MER but without enough time for due diligence. When due diligence was performed and MER was found to have more losses than originally expected, Lewis wanted to back out on the MAC clause but Lewis was placed in an untenable position when Hank Paulson told him that if the MER deal didn’t go through, Lewis and the BoD could expect to be sacked.

    Fair enough - if you see that from that perspective.

    Well the sponge sold some stock in AH for a loss :-(

    I am now in only about 50%.  Will weather the storm and can hold until about 150. 

    Tomorrow will be critical.  If the unemployment numbers come in below estimates will drop another couple hundred points or more on the dow.  We lost critical support in the last 15 minutes.

    Any explanation as to why Apple is up $4.49 in the AH ... right back where it started ???  I’m assuming it’s either an error or my Magic Time Machine really works !!!!!!

    Always look at the Bid/Ask to see where the price is after hours.  The AH chart is splattered with late postings and whatnots.  Also, in my experience, the prices, bids and asks quoted after 8PM are meaningless.

    The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled.

    I think it is an error. only 600 shares traded hands which is too small to bring it up in the last minute.

    no other stock when up.

    The AH price for AAPL may be an error, but I track FLIR and it also shows an AH increase equal to the RH decline.

    Yep. . . was hoping AAPL would hold $182. Now at $180, going down to $175 or lower is a real possibility.

    Hello. You’re not the only one thinking so, it seems, AAPL up 2$ in PM.

    Added: This might explain the rise:

    By Steve Goldstein

    LONDON (MarketWatch)—Apple was upped to buy from neutral by UBS, which said iPhone prospects look bright. It also said Apple may be working on building out a foundation for a service ot provide seamless access and mobility of digital content across its products. UBS upped its Apple target to $265 from $170.
