Call The Close: Party Like It’s One More Than 1999

It’s record setting time down on Wall Street, with the S&P500 crossing the 2000 mark at about 10:40 this morning and hitting an all-time high of 2001.94 about a half-hour later, before doing what major stock indices always do when broaching new ground and taking a few steps back, safely below the big, scary number. Is everyone brave/frisky/crazy enough to get it back over the hump? Read more »

Despite Jamie Dimon’s promise that JPMorgan will be “solidly profitable” for the quarter, some are skeptical given the growing estimates of Whale-boy’s losses. According Mike Mayo, the bank “will only make $727 million…including $4 billion of losses in the unit that made the bungled bet [though] if the losses exceed $5 billion, JPMorgan could make an overall loss.” Barclays’ Jason Goldberg thinks things are gonna be okay here, and sees the bank making $3.3 billion, assuming you know who will have only lost it $3 billion when all is said and done.
