WaMu to Chase

When I heard that Washington Mutual has gone down, I was thinking of withdrawing my money but hubby advised me to just leave it there because it's insured anyway. Though it's not that much, those are money that I earned from my paid blogging, surveys and monetary gifts from friends and families. Hubby didn't even now that I opened my own personal account at Washington Mutual not till recently. I told him those are emergency money to buy plane ticket to the Philippines just in case I'm pissed with least I'm not thinking about using credit cards :-). He's cool with that, he knows that I love trying new things. Our primary account is at our local bank here in Crescent City. I just like it at WaMu because they offer 4.9% APR for my savings.
So last night, it's all confirmed that WaMu and being bought by JPMorgan Chase. Good thing that I wasn't able to buy stocks from WaMu the other day. Because I thought it was just a temporary set back, so when I checked their quota it's only .16 per share. I'm tempted to buy because if ever it will go up, it's a good gain. Anyways, as of September 25, 2008 all WaMu customer deposits are now deposits of JPMorgan Chase, one of the strongest financial institutions in the world. I wonder what next big companies will be going down with the current economic situation. It will totally be a shocked it it will be Coca Cola then being bought by trying to be silly...
