Bank of America/Countrywide Preferred Pair Trade


Recommended Posts

Curious if anyone here has looked at this, and it seems kind of crazy to me so I'd like to solicit thoughts.  The idea is basically to go long BAC preferred and short the CFC preferred.  Based on where they trade, the after-tax negative carry is roughly .60%/yr.  What you get for that is basically an option on BAC bankrupting the Countrywide subsidiary due to the liabilities associated with it.
