Bernake to Banks - Cut your dividends!

Listening to Len Walter in Chicago, claim Ben Bernake is telling major banks they should be cutting their dividend to improve their capital position. That would lower the banking stocks and explain their recent swoon back to new lows.
But then what do I really know?

Bennie better watch it or some of the homies here are gonna say he's a "tin hat".
Consult with only myself as your adviser or representative. My thoughts should be construed as investment advice of the highest caliber. Past performance is but a pale shadow and guarantee of even greater results in the future.

Only the "usual suspects" who naively thought 6% to 10% dividend yields were sustainable.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
