Stock Market Today Strangely Mixed

Stock Market Today Another Sell-Off

See here for Sunday newspaper tips

After the Goldman Sachs fraud bombshell on Friday and the cloud of ash over Europe and the cotinuing Greek crisis the markets sold off again today, but not by as much as may have been expected and some see the recent falls as buying opportunities.

The DOW has bounced back and forth across the unchanged line, the FTSE finished down 16 points after being down 50 points early in the day.

The fraud charges brought against Goldman Sachs by the SEC continue to cause concern but not many people expect to see a full-blown second crash. Thehealth sector has probably been the strongest sector with the Morgan Stanley Healthcare Payor Index currently up 3.5% after a notable move down over the past 2 weeks.

There is however significant weakness in semiconductors, computer hardware, and airline stocks. Gold stocks are also falling quite sharply.

The DOW is currently down 17 points at at 11,002.

Trading in Europe continues choppy as a result of the volcanic ash cloud that has shut Europe down. British Airways is losing around £15m to £20m a day.

Travel agent TUI says the cumulative cost to the group, is about £20m. Estimated daily costs now running at about £5m to £6m.

Thomas Cook said it estimates the daily impact of the disruption at around £7m.

Arriva has confirmed it is in advanced talks with German transport operator Deutsche Bahn about a recommended cash offer for the UK bus and train operator.

Arriva said the German company has indicated that it is willing to make a cash offer of 775p per share.

Gordon Brown has called on the FSA to investigate Goldman Sachs’s activities (anyboyd would think he had an election to try and win!) some people hope that Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) may be able to get back some of hundreds of millions it paid Goldman Sachs in 2008 to unwind a position RBS inherited from its purchase of ABN Amro.

Well Gordon Brown has gone but we are still here - if you are a beginner to stock trading you may like to check out the basics of how to buy stocks online before risking any cash

Goldman Sachs Fraud Charges

Online Stock Trading - Goldman Sachs Hits the SEC Fraud Fan MSNBC Video


Goldman Sachs and Fabrice Tourre have been charged with civil fraud by the SEC over its CDO (collaterized debt obligations) activities at the start of the financial crisis back in 2007, linked with the subprime mortgage market and the subsequent while can of financial worms that threw up.

Goldman Sachs Fraud Video from MSNBC


[UPDATE : Goldman Sachs has just said that the charges are unfounded in fact and in law and they will vigorously contest them]

Goldman Sachs stock price has slumped around 12%. According to the New York Times the charges are "the first time that regulators have taken action against a Wall Street deal that helped investors capitalize on the collapse of the housing market."

John Paulson Hedge Fund ManagerThe SEC is basically asserting that Goldman Sachs and one of its chief officers misled investors by not disclosing that hedge fund manager John Pauson, (who made billions of dollars shorting the housing market), chose the assets that went into a complex security called "Abacus."

According to the SEC Paulson "paid Goldman Sachs to structure a transaction in which Paulson & Co. could take short positions against mortgage securities chosen by Paulson & Co. based on a belief that the securities would experience credit events."

Goldman Sachs, however, which allegedly received $15 million from Paulson, did not reveal these facts to investors who bought Abacus, according to the complaint.

For example, in an email in French and English sent by Goldmand Sachs employee Fabrice Tourre on January 23, 2007 stated : “More and more leverage in the system, The whole building is about to collapse anytime now…Only potential survivor, the fabulous Fab[rice Tourre]…standing in the middle of all these complex, highly leveraged, exotic trades he created without necessarily understanding all of the implications of those monstruosities!!!” Similarly, an email on February 11, 2007 to Tourre from the head of the GS&Co structured product correlation trading desk stated in part, “the cdo biz is dead we don’t have a lot of time left.”

"Goldman Sachs failed to disclose to investors vital information about the CDO, in particular the role that a major hedge fund played in the portfolio selection process and the fact that the hedge fund had taken a short position against the CDO."

The SEC's release with regard to the Goldman Sachs alleged fraud is as follows

"Washington, D.C., April 16, 2010 -- The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged Goldman, Sachs & Co. and one of its vice presidents for defrauding investors by misstating and omitting key facts about a financial product tied to subprime mortgages as the U.S. housing market was beginning to falter.

The SEC alleges that Goldman Sachs structured and marketed a synthetic collateralized debt obligation (CDO) that hinged on the performance of subprime residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS). Goldman Sachs failed to disclose to investors vital information about the CDO, in particular the role that a major hedge fund played in the portfolio selection process and the fact that the hedge fund had taken a short position against the CDO.

"The product was new and complex but the deception and conflicts are old and simple," said Robert Khuzami, Director of the Division of Enforcement. "Goldman wrongly permitted a client that was betting against the mortgage market to heavily influence which mortgage securities to include in an investment portfolio, while telling other investors that the securities were selected by an independent, objective third party."

Kenneth Lench, Chief of the SEC's Structured and New Products Unit, added, "The SEC continues to investigate the practices of investment banks and others involved in the securitization of complex financial products tied to the U.S. housing market as it was beginning to show signs of distress."

The SEC alleges that Goldman Sachs Vice President Fabrice Tourre was principally responsible for ABACUS 2007-AC1. Tourre structured the transaction, prepared the marketing materials, and communicated directly with investors. Tourre allegedly knew of Paulson & Co.'s undisclosed short interest and role in the collateral selection process. In addition, he misled ACA into believing that Paulson & Co. invested approximately $200 million in the equity of ABACUS, indicating that Paulson & Co.'s interests in the collateral selection process were closely aligned with ACA's interests. In reality, however, their interests were sharply conflicting.

According to the SEC's complaint, the deal closed on April 26, 2007, and Paulson & Co. paid Goldman Sachs approximately $15 million for structuring and marketing ABACUS. By Oct. 24, 2007, 83 percent of the RMBS in the ABACUS portfolio had been downgraded and 17 percent were on negative watch. By Jan. 29, 2008, 99 percent of the portfolio had been downgraded.

Investors in the liabilities of ABACUS are alleged to have lost more than $1 billion.

The SEC's complaint charges Goldman Sachs and Tourre with violations of Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and Exchange Act Rule 10b-5. The Commission seeks injunctive relief, disgorgement of profits, prejudgment interest, and financial penalties."

In an e-mail Fabrice Tourre allegedly called himself the 'fabulously fab' and was stating that this was the time to be getting out of the subprime mortgage market (all allegedly of course).

Will there be any collateral damage - who else is affected ? "We continue to look" says the SEC
