GOVERNMENT is here to save the ECONOMY, NOT your share value!!
Just like market rallyed the day FNM and FRE were reduced to pennies, so too market will rally while MS, GS and many others are reduced to much lower share prices. I can't understand why MS is so bullish right now.
You guys just don't get it. You think this plan is the same deal as FRE/FNM or AIG. It's NOT! It's an 800B fund to off load bad debt from the banks. The Gov't isn't interested in taking on more ownership of public companies. They just want to take the debt off their balance sheets so they can function and begin lending to start the housing recovery and keep our economy growing. They are buying their debt, not the company or getting shares in return. Get it??? If not, just sit on the sidelines the next few days and watch. Then later you can kick yourself as you see these stock run up with no ability to short and bad debt being written off their books. Trillions of dollars sitting on the sidelines right now and MS and GS the only two solid investment bankers left. Spoils go to the survivors!!!
