From RealMoney Silver:
Will WFC Be the First to Raise Capital?

My gnome seems to think so.

High above the Alps, my gnome is hearing that Wells Fargo (WFC) will be the first major bank to raise capital after the stress test results are announced today.

Position: Short WFC

Great Call, Doug.  Your Gnome deserves a pat on the back.

Full Disclosure: I currently manage accounts that are long WFC.  My commentary here is not an invitation to buy or sell any securiies, see my Terms & Conditions page for full disclaimer.
