    The truth must be told - Institutional buying

    When the big boys play like this, running the price down and then collecting millions of shares, the little investor gets hurt by selling to the large institutions before they run up the price again. Just one thing the small investor should look at, what are the Institution doing.... buying or selling?

    Here is a list of large institutions and the number of shares they bought (as reported over the last two months). It appears that Vanguard positioned themselves with 3.5 billion dollars worth of stock (over 3% of the float)

    Vanguard Group Inc Added 205,618,740 reported 2008-05-01 ***position increase 4397.81 % (implies new holding)

    Dnb Asset Management Us Inc Added 51,057,887 reported 2008-05-15 ***position increase 1969.74 % (implies new holding)

    Dresdner Bank Ag Added 21,709,871 reported 2008-05-15 ***position increase 253.34 % (tripled share position)

    Tcw Group Inc Added 18,031,526 reported 2008-05-02 ***position increase 96.48 % (nearly doubled share position)

    Mackenzie Financial Corp Added 14,087,490 reported 2008-05-15 ***position increase 110.49 % (doubled share position)

    Numeric Investors Llc Added 13,830,723 reported 2008-05-14 ***position increase 117.25 % (doubled share position)

    Blackrock Investment Management Llc Added 12,521,132 reported 2008-04-23

    Tiaa Cref Added 10,598,802 reported 2008-06-05 ***position increase 1958.80 % (implies new holding)

    Barclays Plc Institution Added 8,156,095 reported 2008-05-14 ***position increase 84.11 % (nearly doubled share position)

    Shaw D E And Co Inc Added 7,432,253 reported 2008-05-15

    Wellington Management Co Llp Added 7,297,399 reported 2008-05-15

    Capital World Investors Added 6,855,000 reported 2008-05-15

    Bank Of America Corp Added 6,756,506 reported 2008-05-12

    Hsbc Holdings Plc Added 6,309,640 reported 2008-05-15 ***position increase 158.28 % (doubled share position)

    Ing Investment Management Co Added 5,715,447 reported 2008-05-14 ***position increase 153.37 % (doubled share position)

    Here are more brand new positions established in PFE

    Eaton Vance Management New Holding 28,683,774 reported 2008-06-10

    Putnam Fund For Growth And Income New Holding 16,249,500 reported 2008-03-31

    Oppenheimer Principal Protected Main Street Fund (I,II,III) New Holding 11,144,376 reported 2008-04-25

    Eaton Vance Balanced Fund New Holding 6,975,600 reported 2008-05-30

    These big boys will play the price down, throwing their large weight around as they collect huge amounts of shares. So when Legg Mason , Gmo Value Fund, Allianz, or Lehman Brothers want to come in and sell their pathetic 20 million share holdings (along with countless small players) it means nothing. Can anyone guess why Lehman and Legg sold all their PFE? LOL (sarcasm)

    It has come to my attention that the negative sentiments you read on this message board, and the people who rate every strong buy with one star, could very well be the work of a hedge fund.

    Stay long, and don't let these idiots and bottom feeders shake you out.

    Take care,
