More MBS lawsuits: Morgan Stanley (MS) is taken to court by Germany's DZ Bank over about $694M in questionable securities. Bank of America (BAC) is sued by CIFG Assurance, which claims it was duped into providing about $150M of insurance to make more marketable toxic MBS the bank otherwise couldn't find a buyer for.

    ...and the hits just keep on coming! So what do we believe...on the one hand there is a lot of press about how much better B of A is doing, on the other hand, the lawsuits are mounting. I am still waiting to see what happens when they all converge.

     

    Meanwhile, I hear alternative energy is a good investment.

    The carrion eaters are at it always. So many supposedly cagy and intelligent investors are weeping: ".gee whiz, we poor saps were duped by those crooked bankers who are smarter than us..". Of course, all of the puky packages were approved by god-almighty, otherwise named S&P or Moody or Fitch, designated by the omniscient Washington crowd as the only gate -keepers to triple-A ratings.
    Perps like Barney and Angelo get to work on their tans, the banks get to take the falls and our government wanders blindly through the swamp.

    There was sometime ago an analysis at Bank of America to see if B Of A can spin - off Country Wide and they concluded it will be bad for public relation. Now, with every tom dick harry ganging up against B of A may be time again for B of A to do that cost-benefit analysis if it would be beneficial to keep Country Wide within B of A umbrella.
