I say "no" because they have been delevering for some time now, so investors can't make a run on them like they did on Bear. In addition to the deleveraging, $6B in capital will be a nice shot of liquidity. Of course, I base my assumption that the worst is behind us; otherwise, this credit cycle could outlast Lehman's $6B--andother financial institutions for that matter.

well, i don't agree at all with the notion that the worst is behind us. but, that's what makes a market!
