S&P Warns of More Financial Pitfalls Ahead

Ockham Research Staff @ December 19, 2008 # One Comment


A sweeping downgrade of financials by credit rating agency S&P was one of the major stories of the day. Or on second thought, what does this tell us that we did not already know, and so far the market has not even noticed.
