This is encouraging in the wake of JP Morgan’s shotgun takeover of Washington mutual last night.  JPM takes on an estimated $31 billion in troubled loans, but also gets a hold of America’s biggest savings and loan, reaching almost half of the country’s population, for a mere $1.9 billion. TD was one of several banks that had expressed interest in WaMu, but this big fish goes to the same bank that swallowed Bear Stearns las March at government behest.
