    How did taxpayers loose on the banks? The banks paid back the loans with interest. The taxpayers lost on GM ands it affiliates. I agree it's Clintons fault. My bank saw the GNMA debacle and we never went near
    CMO/MBS and the like again.

    You clearly don't understand what happened in the 1970's . We experienced a mini action like 2008 which when you add the additional
    games by Clinton and Cisneros you are correct the system failed. My point is that no one learned from history. Just like they sold the too big to fail will be solved Dodd Frank what really happened is that the big guys have cemented their positions while the super regionasl don't have the resources to break that glass ceiling

    The reason I suggested you look at the regulation was to me a tip off to where SYN is going. Just my assumptions'.
    I wouldn't want people to be like Pelosi who has to pass it before they read it.

    10k is the SEC form number for the required annual financial records of a US public company. Basically its the annual report you get as a shareholder without
    the dog and pony of the glossy pictures and spin articles at the front of the report.
    As a new investor you should review it and compare it with the AR the company sends you. It will be BORRING however it gives you insight. I always look at Item 2 Properties to see where their facilities are as an example. More than once I have sold a position when I realized that a storm would be a major stumbling block for a company. After when the damage was know I usual bough the position back at a profit sort of like a short sale. If you have any other questions I will try to get you the best answers.

    I have to disagree because you do not reference the first mortgage debacle that happened in the early 1970 with GNMA. FNMA started in the late 1930's and funded a lot of the growth after World War II with few problems. The CRA of 1977 was used originally to correct discrimination, However like most acts the politicians then proceeded to change regulations using false logic and math.
    The report you mentioned by the 6 DEMS and 4 Reps was classic politicians CYA Do you think the DEMS were going to pin the tail on Clinton
    where a lot of the problems came from?(note I have been a registered DEM for 47 years so I have no axe to grind). It's like the IRS Commissioner
    in the tea party scandal state that the Lois Lerner emails were lost forever only to be found by the inspectors who simply called the IT section. the political appointed commissioner never had anyone call the IT office.
    Seeing you like Wikipedia research why the act was changed 4 times during Clintons term and the HUD revisions to their regulations by Cisneros. It will lead you to why today no medium or large bank has retail mortgages on there books in terms of percentages from the old days

    That's the attitude of most, where we really run into trouble is that most of the regulators do the same thing.

    The trade volume was 125,648 but the open interest is 2358 meaning the trades were to close a position not to open one. Schwab, CBOE and yahoo all have the same OI

    I'm not a fan of M & A in the long run as shareholders and employees lose more that they win. I am a fan of breakups as shareholders do well and usually their is a growth of employment. I did know they had acquired that many companies in the 4 year leading to 2000. I left banking in 1999 after we got our y2k certifications. When a bank is run right it's a license to coin money. Most people are unaware that they get a regular pay check when the company has seasonal cash requirements because of the payroll line of credit as an example. You also will note during that period the industrials in general were having a tuff time.
    I don't have the 2000AR but did they break out GE CAP income by area's as some banks and finance made big money off the Russian crisis at that time. GE CAP has always done big ticket loans that banks could not make
    do to regulations that GE CAP was not under.

    They were not ill-gotten because I also could have taken a loss at the end of the two year, I do think the tax advantage was too generous. It was my second wake up call to learn all I could about taxes. a CPA told me "it's not what you make, it's what you keep". I hope you have a Roth and if possible do a "bracket conversion" every year.

    GE CAP was/is a division of GE , while GE was the battleship, GE CAP in the US was an escort that morphed into a destroyer in more than one sense. While GE CAP has BIG numbers it's staff is relatively small in the USA. If however you look at only numbers Welch increased value while IMMELT has destroyed value. . During his tenure at GE, the company's value rose 4,000%.(1981-2001)while under Immelt it has lost over 30%.

    I do agree that GE has potential, and I would love for the price of the stock
    would reach it's opening price the day Jeff took over(40.00).

    if your total portfolio is under 100k I would not because diversification in the early years should have a little more priority.
