I'm not so sure that anyone as yet, is willing to go out on the proverbable limb and say that it's time to call on the "Fat Lady" to do her thing. Personally, I don't think this thing has gotten any where near running its course, yet.

Then there's the nasty detail, of just what to actually buy, since nobody really knows for sure just how much of anyones worth is actually backed up by those "Toxic Assets."

However, if one had some money that if totally lost wouldn't place you in jeopardy and were of a gambling nature. Then you might have a really good chance of increasing your wealth, providing you also had the time to wait for the return on your investment to come about. The stark reality is, however, the average individual just doesn't have that "extra uncommitted cash" laying around that they can afford to totally loose.

I mean look at what Warren Buffette stands to gain, from the $5 billion investment in Goldman Sachs. and the $3 billion investment in General Electric, but then again he's also in a position that he could totally loose the whole $8 billion and still survive with no problem. And that doesn't even take into account the option to buy an additional $3 billion of Goldman Sachs common stock at $22.25/share at some time in the future, which was part of the original deal struck for the $5 billion.
