Midday Market Update: Biggest Winners

Today's newly minted market rules (or the psychological impact thereof) have forgiven the sins of a number of financial giants. Among them, Washington Mutual has posted 30%+ gains, prompting WM shareholders, who have cut their 180 days losses to a mere 60.33%, to take to the streets in celebration. Likewise, the 23% gain posted by Goldman Sachs has reduced the gelding of her shareholders to a downright cheery 20.55% loss over 180 days. Morgan Stanley executives were celebrating their mere 33.52% loss over the same period after price controls were introduced by the SEC's Chairman Cox last night.
