Mortgage company goes kersplat

road kill

Thornburg Mortgage Inc. lost more than half its market value after the home lender failed to meet $270 million of margin calls and a Citigroup Inc. analyst said bankruptcy is possible.

If a company can’t make a margin call, it means they have no available money and nothing to sell to try to raise the money. No one sane would enter into a mortgage deal with Thornburg now so any business they still had has evaporated.
