    I had a manager who bought about £10k's worth of M&S stock in 1999 (I think), when M&S were predicted to go tits-up. Bought 'em for about 50p each (I think, again). The f---ing financial genius! And I said he was mad...

    all depends on your attitude to risk. could go down alot more in the next few days.
    also with all these people taking out their cash they might have to go back to the BOE for some more.

    I don't do investing in numbers.

    If it's real and I can touch it, I can know it, I can research it, I might even invest in it.

    I was told by someone in the know that they were a good buy on Tuesday.
    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    A good frined of mine who's in risk in financial markkets sent all his friends an email on Northern Rock, and generally on financial institutions in the UK at the moment - key line in his email was this:

    If you have any significant money in accounts with insignificant institutions I'd get it out.
    In the 7 years I've known him he's never once sent me an email like that. He works for one of the major players and is in a pretty senior risk role. I know what I'd be doing right now, and shares in Northern rock wouldn't be one of them.
