Would one not expect the most favorable “spin” on a press release from an institution regarding that particular institution? If one wants no spin news, listen to Fox. If one only wants to read the truth, the whole truth, & nothing but the truth, one needs to limit ones reading to the Bible.
whats misleading when the facts are clearly presented? a one time gain is a one time gain. Shorts mislead in order to scare investors. if you dont like the stock dont buy it and move along, it is that simple. BXS is pulling what i now call a "BP effect". For the last several quarters they have been putting aside more and more reserves for bad loans, probably too much (like BP's $40B of gulf spill). However they take thier lumps now and clean up thier balance sheet. This is good for the future while at the same time a nice tailored set up for a SALE ($18 a share, IMHO).
