    The "classic short squeeze" must not have run its course, as Sears (SHLD +7%) shares again spike higher on no real news. No stock is more subject to rumor mongering and takeover talk than Sears; today, speculation has the retailer working with Goldman Sachs (GS) to find a buyer.

    All of the TBTF banks are lower premarket in concert with JPMorgan (JPM -2.9%). Of note is Goldman Sachs (GS -1.7%). Unless the cause of the sharp drop (39%) in JPMorgan's investment banking fees was a loss of business to competitors, the slowdown in this line of work may not bode well for Goldman.

    Goldman Sachs (GS +2.5%) bounces back after an S&P spokesman says the company hasn't made a downgrade, as had been reported. Data on S&P's website indicating a downgrade appears to be responsible for the reports.

    Another day, another analyst ax to forecasts for big banks (XLF -2.1%): This time, it's Nomura cutting Q4 earnings estimates for several, citing “the difficult trading backdrop, soft investment banking trends [and] limited expense flexibility." Share price targets are lowered: BAC to $7 from $8, C to $36 from $38, GS to $130 from $141, MS to $18 from $20.

    Early green in the major averages is masking another decline in the TBTF banks, led today by Citigroup (C -3.7%) and Bank of America (BAC -2.8%). BofA again flirts with a $4 handle, matching a 52 week low of $5.02.

    Financials (XLF -2.5%) are suffering the most in early trading, in a steep slide that comes after the sector scored an outsized gain of 1.2% yesterday. Investors are ignoring the better-than-expected U.S. jobless claims report and focusing on the latest disappointment from Europe. Among big banks: BAC -2.7%, JPM -2.8%, C -4.8%, GS -2.3%, WFC -1.9%, MS -5.1%.

    Goldman Sachs (GS +5%) shares see a spike in volume as Bloomberg TV reports CEO Lloyd Blankfein may be deposed in the Rajat Gupta insider trading case. Gupta allegedly passed tips to Raj Rajaratnam, the convicted hedge fund manager in one of the biggest insider trading schemes in history.
