    TARP Money Spent On Golf


    My family has been with the Northern Trust for over 20 years.

    They had us go from 70% in stocks to 20% in stocks 18 moths ago. We sold our Citi for $36.00. We sold our BAC at $45.00. Here is a list of stocks the Northern DID NOT buy for our accounts:

    WAMU, F, Fannie, Freddie, Countrywide, Lehman, Indymac, AIG, AMBAC, MBIA, GM, and any homebuilder, any automotive, and any other finacial except JPM.

    It is amazing.....they stayed clear of almost every single "blow-up" stock. I assume they did this for all of their private wealth clients.

    Over the last 18 months, we are down less than 10%. The average trust account is down close to 50% over that time frame.

    Trust who you wish.

    I'll be playing golf. :-)
