    Saddam Hussein told an FBI interviewer before he was hanged that he allowed the world to believe he had weapons of mass destruction because he was worried about appearing weak to Iran, according to declassified accounts of the interviews released yesterday. The former Iraqi president also denounced Osama bin Laden as "a zealot" and said he had no dealings with al-Qaeda Less

  • Fed Approve Needed

    While there are some regulator hurdles to close the deal, they are hardly insurmountable. The buyout would require approval from the Federal Reserve, and possibly other agencies, but analysts believe regulators are more concerned about a Countrywide collapse than industry consolidation.

    A Countrywide failure would be a huge blow to government-sponsored mortgage finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which are major buyers of Countrywide's loans.

    Federal law also bars banks from acquisitions that would increase market share above 10 percent of U.S. deposits, a limit that Bank of America is nearing. Experts disagree about whether deposits held by Countrywide's federally regulated thrift would count toward that limit, and Hendler said Bank of America could also get a waiver from regulators.

    In addition, banking industry experts say Bank of America could easily lower the total amount of money held in deposits by decreasing interest rates and shedding deposits.

  • According to Zacks "Meanwhile, The Blackstone Group is actually looking pretty good on its own too. The firm has seen solid earnings estimate revision activity over the past month, suggesting analysts are becoming a bit more bullish on the firm’s prospects in both the short and long term.

    In fact, over the past month, current quarter estimates have risen from 84 cents per share to 95 cents per share, while current year estimates have risen from $3.12 per share to $3.72 per share. This has helped BX to earn a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), further underscoring the company’s solid position

    NEW YORK, July 17 (Reuters) - Blackstone Group LP, the world's largest alternative asset manager, said on Thursday its second-quarter earnings jumped 89 percent year-on-year as its private equity profits soared, marking its best second quarter ever.

    Blackstone said economic net income (ENI), a metric of its profitability that takes into account the mark-to-market valuation of its portfolio, was $1.33 billion in the second quarter versus $703 million a year ago.

    That translated into ENI per share of $1.15, more than the 71 cents that analysts forecast on average in a Thomson Reuters poll

    For those that are listening to chicken little headlines check Bloomberg to quote"Net income fell to $2.29 billion in the second quarter, or 19 cents a share, from $4.01 billion, or 32 cents, a year earlier, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based firm said today in a statement. Earnings excluding litigation costs were 41 cents a share. The average estimate of 24 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg was 29 cents"

  • According to Seeking Alfa "Over the past five years, Blackstone has grown EPS at an astounding 30.47% annually. With a rapidly growing market and industry, as well as significant competitive advantages, Blackstone's revenues should continue to grow almost as rapidly over the next five years. Since the firm has relatively low variable costs due to its fee-based business model, expenses should rise approximately in line with revenues. Based on these assumptions, I would expect EPS to grow at about 24-26% annually over the next five years. Currently, the stock has a P/E TTM of 15.3. In five years, I would expect this to decrease to about 12 (to account for lower growth prospects in the distant future). In addition, the stock has a dividend yield of 4.25%, which I expect to remain steady. Summing this up gives a total expected return of about 25% annual EPS growth + 4% dividend yield - 12/15 * 25% EPS (for P/E contraction) = 24% annual. This represents almost 200% upside in five years, giving the stock a five-year price target of $96 per share, compared to $32 per share right now. The current PEG ratio of 0.47 supports this growth-at-a-reasonable-price (GARP) investment thesis.

    Overall, Blackstone Group is a high-quality, leading firm in a hot, fast-growing industry. The company's brand name and consistent innovation, as well as favorable secular trends, give it a large future growth runway. The current stock valuation does not reflect the company's growth prospects, leading to 200% upside over the next five years."
