Has there been a better short than the brokers?

  1. Over the last month, that is. LEH, LM, BSC, MER - they've all been getting the snot kicked out of them.

    And if the market selloff continues, I would think they'd continue to slide. So, as much as they've gotten hit, you might still make money on the short side with these pigs. :D

    in your opinion why does a market selloff correspond with a decline in brokerage stocks?

  4. You mean the home builders? Yeah, they've gotten hit but they haven't had as sharp a selloff in the last month as the brokers.
