Hey Fishhead...let the bank run begin. No doubt in my mind this stock is going bankrupt.

This is probably not the end of it. They started on Tuesday when they announced 900 layoffs. All week they've been canning people and waited until after hours on Friday to announce the big number. They hope nobody notices, or forgets by Monday.

From what people have been saying, it could be over 20,000 total.

You could be right...........not that I'm overly worried(FDIC insured), but will soon be slowly moving my money out of my Countrywide savings account and into a more stable savings platform.

2+2 Thread from back in Feb '07.

Cramer was touting CFC at $45 back then as being the beneficiary of a subprime meltdown of its competitors.

My thoughts from that thread,

This reminds me of the bursting of the tech bubble. A lot of weak stocks went to zero and were never bargains at any price. Meanwhile, the best companies held up for a while but finally fell to levels that were almost unthinkable near the top of the bubble.

blueman, because there is a very good chance the company is going to go under. The CEO already sold all $450 million of his shares, that shows you how much confidence the public should have.
