JPMorgan to buy ailing Bear Stearns for $2 a share

  • "a stunning collapse for one of the world's largest and most venerable investment banks."
  • "JPMorgan's acquisition of Bear Stearns represents roughly 1 per cent of what the investment bank was worth just 16 days ago."


Now I am starting to get scared, this is starting to get really ugly!! Is tomorrow going to be another "Black Monday"!!!??? Are we in for another Great Depression??

I will go as far to say that there will be some very sad looking bank stocks after tomorrow.

If Calgary is any indication of what is in store for the rest of the Canadian Housing Markets, there are going to be some unhappy people who bought at the top. Not to mention all the people that are counting on their new found wealth to retire, source of credit, etc.

Here's the Link to the Canadain Housing News Articles.
