    Insane? Insane!

    You don't know insane if he/she bit you on the behind.

    Insane was the lending industry over the last 5 years! Insane was all the regulators and "investors" buying into the economic expansion based on HUGE amounts of debt.

    Insane is thinking that sub-prime lending served a need. Insane is thinking that homeownership is for everyone.

    The American Dream has been exploited beyond repair. It will be decades before this mess is cleaned up.

    <<Lead managers Deutsche Bank Securities, RBS Greenwich Capital and Wachovia Securities underwrote NovaStar Mortgage Funding Trust, Series 2007-1, which closed February 28, 2007. The transaction was structured into 17 rated classes of certificates with a face value of $1,845,384,000.>>

    Get debt placed so management can help Deutsche get out of shares.

    Criminal!!!!!! Heads will roll and capitalism will go bust.

    I don't care what happens keep buying!!!!!!!!!!!

    As the global credit crunch continues it will be much harder for Critelli to place more debt. How much is adjustable?

    How long will it take before the government takes over PBI?

    What a genius! Announce $300 million buy back when you only have $300 million in cash and $$$$ short-term debt.

    Looking for another Cerbrus bail out......

  • contrarianbs by contrarianbs Mar 13, 2007 11:41 AM Flag

    Yahoo reports that PBI has $300 million in cash. Management announces $300 million in additional buy backs. Cash flow has been terrible and will get worse as high cash producing assets have been sold. Probably a good call due to the risk, but financials are completely different than in the years past!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ha.......Ha.

    372 million in shares can disappear in a couple of weeks with an uptick in volume

  • I know they sold off a considerable amount of receivables, but does it have recourse?

    PBI has been a quasi-bank for decades.
