May 19 2011

Boring and profitable - another day in the office. Linkedin IPO provided some fun though. Chart below is a perfect illustration to mass insanity.

Session Time: Thu May 19 00:00:00 2011
[09:03] {Threei}  for Ron:
[09:03] {Threei}  (GR) The main option now to consider for Greece is for banks to commit to maintaining steady holdings of Greek bonds - financial press citing sources
[09:03] {Threei}  - Any form of restructuring that would cause credit event is not an option; credit event would cuase paying out CDS
[09:03] {Threei}  - Voluntary deal with investors could be part of new Greek reforms, austerity and additional EU/IMF funding from 2011-14; the option would include not selling down banks' positions held in Greek debt, and buying some Greek bonds to replace issues that matured over the length of the programme
[09:03] {Threei}  - In the event of restructuring, the ECB would decline Greek bonds as collateral
[09:05] {RonS} gm...always good to know...
[09:05] {Threei}  :)
[09:14] {samire} GM
[09:14] {Threei}  morning samire
[09:17] {RonS} evidence of a changed world:
[09:17] {RonS} Goodrich (GR) has been selected by Russian Helicopters, JSC to provide the main rotor actuator and hydraulic power supply for its upgraded Mi-34C1 light helicopter. The agreement includes research and development, original equipment supply and aftermarket support for both units. Prototypes for flight tests have already been produced by Goodrich's Actuation Sy
[09:17] {RonS} Goodrich's Actuation Systems business with entry into service planned for late 2012.
[09:18] {RonS} kinda funnywhen you consider that heicoters were invented by a russian immigrant, Sikorsky

[11:29] {Threei}  (US) Dept of Health and Human Services issues final regulation ensuring large health insurance premium increases will be thoroughly reviewed- Consumers will have access to clear information about those increases. Combined with other important protections from the Affordable Care Act, these new rules will help lower insurance costs by moderating premium hikes and provide consumers with greater value for their premium dollar. In 2011, this will mean rate increases of 10-percent or more must be reviewed by state or federal officials.
