reply to your last question - about the dividend because :
1. You can go long a stock which is worth much more - Example "citigroup" then overleveraged DB and short DB as an hedge. 2. DB can not survive with a bailout and upon bailout the shareholders will be diluted significantly. Gov will impose restrictions on Dividend. So historical dividend is not a good measure.
just relax - the worst is over - DB may well pay divident for 08 - with the takeover of German Postbank it's going to be great for 2010 - just hang in there or get the average down. Peter (out of Switzerland)
Yes sir, this is decidedly lacking in the ha ha's. It especially hurt's after seeing how DB performed after earnings, up 50% in a week. Well, I'll probably do something dumb like add to my position after I harvest some Nov. puts I had on stocks worse off than DB:)
You may see a rebound short term starting with today. I covered yesterday and am going long for a swing trade. My ave price is $23.07 I expect a 15% short term gain. IMHO there is still some bad assets that are not being disclosed so this is a trade not an investment. After what has happened to C, BAC and LEHMQ it is too early to decide that the carnage is over with this bank. Just an opinion.
