Today it appears every stock, no matter what it is, people are selling. Everyone wants out of the market.

We may see Dow close in the 7000's today as hard as that is to believe.

The Dow rallied a $1000 today. Ya know they give us a $1000 back after they took $3000 away. We need a heck of a lot more of a recovery than this for me to get my shirt back. Financials are all still way lower than they were a week and a half ago.

I'm surprised their stock hasn't recovered any. I would have thought the news of this antitrust settlement would have helped prop up the stock price.

Now the new bandwagon are all these folks saying credit cards are next to go. I'm sick and tired of this fear mongering by the liberal press. They're hurting folks like me that are losing our shirts in the stock market on companies like Discover. No bad news at Discover but they make it sound like every credit card outfit is going to disappear from the face of the earth.

There was a 20% surge in the price today. I understand that may be relatively minor when compared to your losses but it is still significant. Discover is a solid company with good earnings and assets. Their cardholders also have above average credit and any debt carried on the cards is not owned by them. If I were you I would hold on they are an undervalued company with a bright future.

I don't think the market will move much one way or another until the election is over. Obama may be in the lead with polls but there is still that cloud of uncertainty lingering over us.

Only a week left. :)

It's staying up a notch above it's low but still down there way below what it was.

My Discover tanked again today closing under 9. It's the damn media doing this drumming up the drama of it all. Company is making good money and chargeoffs inline. We need to put a damn censor on CNBC and tell them to shut their mouths they are only hurting us.

It looks like it's trading at 5 times earnings. Wow that is cheap.

While many stocks are cheap now what I don't understand is why the street isn't valuing in their antitrust settlement. Discover is a company worth a little over 4 billion and their share of the settlement will end up being at least $1.25 billion. You would think investors would consider that but apparently not.
