Look at everyone trying to describe this 150mph head on collision as some sort of final capitulation, a buying opportunity. Watch them talk garbagio about how insignificant Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. [[LEH]] was and how if we just close our eyes, we will not see American International Group, Inc. [[AIG]] melt away.
Bank of America Corporation [[BAC]] just threw an oversized anvil on their shareholders, via buying Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. [[MER]] —at way too high of a price. We all know they could have bought them for like 10 billion. Instead, I guess they thought it made “sense” to take the life savings of coal miners and school teachers in order to buy them for 44 billion.
Right, that makes sense.
Enough of the news; let’s talk turkey.
On this little tiny dip, I will buy more [[SKF]] . There is no way in hell those bastards from Wells Fargo & Company [[WFC]] ] should be green, yet they are. Look for Citigroup Inc. [[C]] and Bank of America Corporation [[BAC]] to continue to drive SKF higher, especially with all the arbs on BAC now.
Also, Legg Mason, Inc. [[LM]] is wrong, as usual. I will try to short more.
And, I will begin to short AXA (ADR) [[AXA]] . These European noodles have investment risk everywhere. They are as stupid as Pzena Investment Management, Inc. [[PZN]] , only 1,000 times bigger. Just know, AXA is long 132 million shares of American International Group, Inc. [[AIG]] .
Finally, my head is being “Talibanned” off via egregiously weak oil stocks. From [[DIG]] to Western Refining, Inc. [[WNR]] , pain is abundant. At the moment, I am closing my eyes to the weakness, sort of like how Cramer only likes to accentuate his green stocks, while his “charitable portfolio” is down 25%, year to date.
Luckily for me, my “uncharitable portfolio” is up more than 40%.
