    • Hmmmmmm.....I fear if the dividend is cut and the credit rating is downgraded.....The stock will go up. Buffet and the government have much riding on a troubled credit card in trouble to do well to force false confidence in a loss filled market....

    • But analysts have warned that the improvement isn't necessarily indicative of a sustainable trend.

      "The pace of deterioration in the company's credit card portfolio surpassed that of peers in 2008, given the heavier exposure to borrowers in California and Florida, outsized portfolio growth in 2006 and 2007, and the inclusion of a higher-loss small business portfolio," Fitch said. "Deterioration will continue to outpace peers in 2009."
