The modern-day buggy whip group was rocked once again today, they literally cannot justify their existence at this point.  Oh well.

JPMorgan (JPM) was able to raise $5 billion overnight and pretty all of the banks talked about paying off TARP this month.  Let’s hope so.  In honor of the banks, the above video is a throwback to when lame rap was used to sell toys to kids my age.   Enjoy the Build-a-Bank commercial and guess the year:  “Put Money In It“…LOL!

It was a mildly positive day for many stocks with the Dow up a bit going into the close.

Thanks for reading today, have a great night!

Full Disclosure: I am currently long JPM for customer accounts.  Do not trade or invest based on anything you read here.
