As illustrated in detail in my analysis, Bear Stearns is in some real trouble. CNBC reports that the US attorney is intensifying its investigation of the bank and an indictment is increasingly possible. In addition, Bear Stearn's exposure to the mortgage and real estate markets are sinking it. I expect:

- $121 million in losses in CMBS,
- $172 million in Alt A residential
- $363 milion in ARMs
- $4 million in Helocs
- $402 million in midprime loans
- $148 million in 2nd lien loans
- and $1.4 BILLION in subprime loans.

A total of at LEAST $2.7 bilion in losses will be coming down on the Bear, devastating equity capital. I have scoured through roughly 30% of Bear Stearns entire ABS holdings, and these losses are from just that 30%.
