Re: anybody see the news about 5/3

well boa or chase are certainly in better shape to go after them, but historicaly wells has been waiting in the shadows. however, i don't think wells is in much better shape than 5/3 and chase just made a fire sale aquisition.

Banks are in hot water. I bought stock in Citi and National City. I lost 70% of value on National City Stock and 40% value on Citi Stock. I am keeping them for long term and hopefully at some time they bounce back. For not it is a waste. I would not invest on any of the bank or financial stocks in the current market.

Re: anybody see the news about 5/3

the high for 5/3 was in like '02 at around $70 a share, if my memory is accurate. i'm kind of thinking they can't go much lower, not that i'm willing to put money on it though.

Yeah, not a good time for bank stocks if you've been  sitting on them.  But it is a great time to buy them.  RBS is at $4.60, WaMu is $6.26, Barclays is down to $25.60 from $80.00+ just 8 months ago.  Buy Buy Buy!!!
