The lenders are now in trouble.

You have got to be out of your mind to take on a huge mortgage.

Yeah, the Alt-A lenders (between subprime and prime) are next in line.

[sarcasm]Well, you couldn't have seen *that* coming.[/sarcasm]

At first the New York byline threw me -- I figured it ought to be a California company or perhaps a Washington D.C. / Virginia company. But sure enough, the company in the article is based in Irvine, CA.

"stated doc" loans, anyone?

All those subprimes are hurting big time. Check out NFI and LEND, same story. I was in NFI a while back, but luckily got out before the implosion.

I do wonder though which ones of these are going to survive, and if they might be a good buy right now when there is blood in the streets.... maybe toss in a little bit (very little!) of play money on speculation.
