Southwest CFO: No cash problem

DALLAS (AP) -- Southwest Airlines has "very limited financing needs" and little immediate exposure to the turmoil in the financial markets, the chief financial officer said Wednesday. Laura Wright said Southwest (LUV, Fortune 500), which enters fuel-hedging transactions with financial-services firms as counterparties, has no exposure to bankrupt Lehman Brothers (LEH, Fortune 500) and only a small amount to brokerages that don't have a commercial banking side. Wright said Southwest, which reported about $5.8 billion in cash and short-term investments on June 30, has enough cash set aside to cover about 85% of its fuel-hedging positions, according to CNNMoney.com.

Government Assumes Control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

The US Treasury has taken three additional steps to complement FHFA's decision to place both enterprises in conservatorship. First, Treasury and FHFA have established Preferred Stock Purchase Agreements, contractual agreements between the Treasury and the conserved entities. Under these agreements, Treasury will ensure that each company maintains a positive net worth. These agreements support market stability by providing additional security and clarity to GSE debt holders - senior and subordinated - and support mortgage availability by providing additional confidence to investors in GSE mortgage backed securities. This commitment will eliminate any mandatory triggering of receivership and will ensure that the conserved entities have the ability to fulfill their financial obligations. It is more efficient than a one-time equity injection, because it will be used only as needed and on terms that Treasury has set. With this agreement, Treasury receives senior preferred equity shares and ... (Read More)

Judge Rejects Settlement Over Merrill Bonuses

A Federal District judge on Monday overturned a settlement between the Bank of America and the Securities and Exchange Commission over bonuses paid to Merrill Lynch executives just before the bank took over Merrill last year. The $33 million settlement "does not comport with the most elementary notions of justice and morality," wrote Jed S. Rakoff, the judge assigned to the case in federal court in Lower Manhattan. The ruling forces the S.E.C. to go back to the drawing board. The commission can either renegotiate the settlement or take the case to court. The S.E.C. could also drop the case. (NYTimes.com)

Gmail Edges Past AOL, Still in Third Place

News flash: Google's Gmail is not the most popular Web mail service. Or even the second-most popular option.

Gmail's 37 million visitors a month badly trail the 106 million Yahoo Mail draws each month, but aren't far behind the 47 million of Microsoft's Hotmail -- and just surpass the 36.4 million of AOL's Web mail.
