According to Reuters, GGP said on Wednesday that funds from operations rose 8.4 percent, in part from the acquisition of a former partnership. Second-quarter funds from operations, or FFO, were $228 million, or 71 cents per share, compared with $210.3 million, or 71 cents per share, in the prior year.

 There is a lot of this going on lately, where companies caught in the asset securitization crisis move the goal posts 100 feet closer then proclaim a touchdown. GGP is assuming we are not smart enough to notice they are comparing apples to oranges in a citrus beauty contest. Let's see... They are stating FFO, which just may exclude the charges and costs that needed to be taken to complete the acquisition for the "former partnership". Despite this, they failed to forget to include the operating funds from said partnership acquisition in thier results.

Who would dare bet me that if we were to compare same property net results from last year we would see a significant decline? Okay, no takers? How about betting me on the effect of the inclusion of all expenses and revenues in their numbers ending up showing a business in trouble during even more troubling macro economic times?

 I will be posting some shenanigans from American Express and a full forensic exam of both Amex and HSBC in a few hours (translated, when I get around to it), then that will probably be it for the financials. I have been moving into the next two phases of my investment thesis for the past month or so. I think I was first for various financials, almost first with the monolines, early on the homebuilders and a front runner on the REITS, but these spaces have gotten very crowded and are departing from their fundamentals.

I will be posting an open, all blogger welcome, get together at Buddahkahn restaurant in NYC's meat packing district in a few hours as well. For all of you single guys and gals out there who like to "pretty people" watch, this is the gathering for you.
