One of the following recently went through a 20 to 1 reverse stock split which placed its value on that day at approx. $20. Now it has lost another 40%. One of the following is being kept alive because of its enormous derivative exposure to the other; taxpayer $$ are being expended (via the PPT) to keep it barely alive so that further losses can be shoveled out its back door to the other. One of these entities is owned by the US taxpayer; only one guess which (this is a hard one!):
Dont forget that AIG recently went through a 20 to 1 reverse that took its share price from $1 to $20. The nice thing about the PPT keeping supporting it with treasury money is that "others" can continue shorting it down for end of quarter beaucoup trading proits and bonus money--nothing is unturned for profit these days! "What a great country!"
