    their financial unit
  4. S2007S


    They were involved in subprime mortgages through their unit WMC Mortgage, I dont know if they sold it off, it was the 5th biggest subprime lender at the time.
  5. You'll see a lot of unhappy faces on CNBC anchors if their earnings shit the bed.. Sure, they have a lot invested in them in their 401k's. Wonder if they have a nice 2-1 matching contribution.
  6. They are usually extremely transparent, so I be surprised if they are hiding something.
  7. :D All the more reason to watch Bloomberg.
  8. LOL, I usually have Bloomberg on late at night when I watch the futures, Asia, and Europe action. For some reason, I leave CNBC on during the day. Maybe cause their anchor woman are hotter. Usually on mute though.:D
  9. You got to have it on mute for Bartiromo, the most irritable person on daytime TV.
  10. I hear ya, when she whines along with douche Cramer, its very irritating. Then you have that studdering donkey Rattigan who needs speech lessons.
