Those who followed the site were first warned about Morgan Stanley, Bear Steans and Lehman in January (February for Lehman brothers) - a full eight to nine months ago with the stocks trading in the 50's, 130's and 50's respectively. You were warned about Goldman in July with the stock price in the 180's. These were specific warnings with 20 page plus analyses. Why didn't the ratings agencies severely downgrade Bear Stearns and Lehman until AFTER they ceased being viable ongoing concerns. I mean, after all, if I were a paying client I would seriously ponder this as I nursed that gaping hole in my portfolio commonly known as a LOSS! How about Morgan and Goldman??? It appears that the monoline fiasco and the threat from the NYS attorney general wasn't enough to light a real fire under their collective asses. After all, I warned about the monolines LAST YEAR (with their stocks trading in the $60's as opposed to the low single digits now) - plenty of time for them to do their own due diligencel. We won't even mention GGP, where I wrote a veritable novel of explicit warnings starting last year (it was in the $60s then, it is about $3 now) detailing EXACTLY what was to be expected - see GGP and the type of investigative analysis you will not get from your brokerage house . Someone should gift the ratings agencies an institutional subscription to the blog. Seriously guys, there is this concept known as credibility...
