    They have 40% of BV in junk rated debt and various sovereigns, not to mention their massive exposure to the Yen. Its complicated to analyze, but these guys have real issues they have yet to address.

    Hired an investment manager and sold/wrote down much of their Eurozone investments, and you think they are not addressing their issues???

    Actually they didn't. The number is denominated in Yen, not Dollars.

    Have to disagree. If you factor in their entire portfolio of loser bonds, it's just $2B of $100+B portfolio. Given the rise of many of their losers in the past 3 months, especially the bonds of the Bank of Jersey, they've gotten rid of nearly 75% of those $2B in losses. That mean's it's pretty much pure operating profits from here on in. This is an $80 stock at $1.68EPS*4qtrs*12PE.
