RBS - Bad timing for takeover.

One and half year ago I had been posting about takeover bidding for ABN Ambro from Royal Bank of Scotland, Barclays, Santander Central Hispano SA and Fortis. Finally Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) offered the most, USD 100 bln and won. Now for the same amount RBS could buy following list of companies and has still remaining USD 8 bln.

Citibank (C) 22,5 bln
Morgan Stanley (MS) 10,5 bln
Goldman Sachs (GS) 21 bln
Merrill Lynch (MER) 12,3 bln
Deutsche Bank (DB) 13 bln
Barclays (BCS) 12,7 bln

It should be mentioned that RBS has also become very cheap.
