Think about this for a second. How long do you actually thing that these highly leveraged buyouts can go on for? The credit that is helping finance the leveraged buyouts has to dry up sooner or later. I think the sub prime mortgage problems will be quickly forgotten when the first leveraged buyout gets into serious trouble. Will they tighten the lending standards anytime soon, the answer is probably NO. I would take notice of the Highly leveraged buyouts and pay close attention to where private equity is heading, this cant last forever.
