Meredith Whitney turns bearish

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Uber-bank analyst Meredith Whitney was on CNBC yesterday and was quite concerned about how the Federal Reserve is going to extricate itself from its asset purchase programs in the period ahead, programs that have kept long-term interest rates artificially low.

When asked if the banking sector is now adequately capitalized (right around the 3:20 mark), Whitney replies, "No way, no way" and then on residential real estate she must have said "another leg down" about five times. Oh yeah, and a "double-dip" recession.

Maria doesn't like to get news like this ... there's more in this report over at CNBC.

After all of Whitney's bearishness, it's almost comical to hear the Money Honey say, "So what would you be buying here?"

So the central bank has no realistic way to exit the GSE holdings. GSE credit standards are so lax by comparison with the rest of the world that no one else will ever want them. Reverse repos won't work if the central banks is forced to keep buying the entire supply of GSE.
