$2 broker

JP Morgan looks to have made one of the great deals of all times, buying Bear Stearns for $2 a share. The question now is with Bears book value of over $80 per share what does that mean for the value of other Investment Banks ? The Bear take over sends a strong little noticed signal, the signal is that if you “step up” as the buyer of very troubled assets the FED will grant you a prize.
