If they sell below book, they will have to book a loss.Not good for the BS or the IS
maybe so, but it is a one time loss intstead of continuing losses. Market would see this a positive and return to more normal operations. Good for the stock price.
is AIG selling entire bad debt or what percentage of debt? what kind of bad debt on its portfolio? what other potential bad debt still on its portfolio that it needs to writedown or sell?
SHORTS R TOAST!!!!!!!
LEH all over again. Lets start the rumors of buyouts!! See you at $7 Monday.
what i want to know is sell at what xx cents on dollar? below 10 cents on dollar? anyone remember what was xx cents on dollar by MER last time?
i believe it was 22-26 cents on a dollar
I think MER was 22 cents. After watching longs on FNM, FRE, and LEH say the same types of nonsense, I'm going to be amused watching AIG tank as well.
