@Copernicus2013 have a chart?Barclays hearts $WFC, says they're in a "goldilocks situation"...IMO these 10 are pretty fluffy without substance http://t.co/0XXd6y8l3H@modestproposal1 the magic $50bil asset level is where the "we're going to super glue your hands together" set of regulations kick in@modestproposal1 Yeah to me it's less about asset size than it is activities, leverage & asset quality allowed@CandiceLen @Breaking911 he really stuck his neck(s) out@TheArmoTrader a bunch of Suntrust's, PNC's, etc@barnejek isn't it past your bedtime?!We're told the big banks are too big & need to be split up but smaller banks are merging together due to regulatory costs.What will be left?@izakaminska that's an amazingly targeted troll job?@TheStalwart @IvanTheK it's effective given our last names@peterk121 @munilass for the most part, yes@boes_ Is there any concerns about lending risks shifting to the shadow banking market & whether the Fed can monitor them@activiststocks it's work for me too, but I find it peculiar when certain people take great joy in pointing out others' mistakes@activiststocks It's twitter dude@jake_f @munilass @zatapatique Comes down to collateral. In new MBS/ABS structure really isn't the risk here given underlying collateral imo@zatapatique @munilass I get the sense that today leverage in combo w/ structure is more essential to hit yield bogeys versus in '07@maxvision33 you love pointing out calls gone wrong@munilass Agree, so merely a shifting of risk from regulated entities to shadow banks@munilass That's fair. Just think ppl overplay impact of rates in '07 & possibly underplay the impact today. Granted today's markets are hot@DavidSchawel Oops, wrong link. http://t.co/u9yqPhze3o
Retweeted by David Schawel@munilass My point being rates were less of the cause in '07 as opposed to underwriting standards - today rates more of a pure driver@M_C_Klein arguably tougher to tie previous risk seeking behavior to Greenspan's actions (more about loose underwriting)than today's actions@ilkandcookies I can see you doing thatIs it possible for people to think Greenspan held rates too low causing the housing crisis but not think the Fed should be hiking here?@IvanTheK It's much more interesting to me now having participated in repo, banking, overnight funding, etcRemember repo 105? Good times.@DividendMaster company is a disasterActually turn out pretty well http://t.co/CzNpyicnU0 https://t.co/qCbDZVDHqL@deuxetvingt also interesting it's happening given USTs
@SJosephBurns @Copernicus2013 people get too overconfident in a bull market - likely much success was from luck/beta rather than skill@hilarycakes https://t.co/tFpFbKlKMD@hilarycakes you missed a chain of fried chicken puns#chelseaDaggerGame 7 here we come ladies & gents #blackhawks@nokamber heck yeahBOOM@IvanTheK @georgepearkes I admit it was pretty fowl@georgepearkes there's got to be a colonel of truth in there somewhere cc: @IvanTheK card?@_NickRogers_ thoughts? http://t.co/YKfw7xiwoq@MarkLazerus have you asked Q about Teuvo on the PP?
