From Bankrolling Casino ‘Wall Street’ to Bankrupting (almost) Themselves

It really is an incident of "shame on myself," or simply "serve me right" for thinking also highly of myself.
I happened to be really skeptical in regards to the huge American banks’ astronomical earnings during the early 2000s, and believed to myself those huge earnings make no sense and "I’m not placing money into their shares."
But soon after the housing/ banking/ credit crisis started in 2007, lender stocks began a free-fall. By 2008, Citigroup shares choose to go down by over 50% from their particular pre-crisis highs. I was thinking my perseverance had paid off therefore was a good time to get in. We began placing money into Citi shares. Well, as they say when you look at the financial investment jargon, "bottom-fishing" is much like "catching a falling blade." If you’re not mindful, be ready to get bloodied!
And boyd performed I previously shed big on Citi?! After a 1-for-10 share combination (for example. reverse stock split) in May 2011, my 450 shares became 45 stocks now, worth USD ,931 as of 2013-01-25, and I also’ve experienced a 83.5per cent reduction.
A shareholder class-action suit was launched against Citigroup’s management over their mis-representation on the amount of collateralized debt burden (CDOs) the lender had been exposed to. Citigroup decided to pay money of USD 0-million towards shareholders just who obtained Citigroup stocks between 2007-02-26 and 2008-07-17. Obviously i am the shareholders included in the settlement.
With millions of stocks outstanding and thousands and thousands of shareholders impacted and covered by the settlement, we anticipate i might get USD in payment, if I’m happy!
The stock exchange is obviously a little bit of a gamble, so I knew the return could possibly be positive or unfavorable. That part I’m good, it is the reality nothing of this unscrupulous bank CEOs have previously been recharged for fraudulence that makes me angry. Even worse still, when they’re let go, they still receive money untold thousands in exit pay and live very opulent lives.
The settlement estimates that for every eligible shareholder, they could anticipate probably a commission of 19 dollars (USD) for every single share which they possessed.
Quite a concept for me personally eh?
