At a time when we're all scrambling for good news, even events deemed "mildly favorable" can be worth noting. So, here's some: JP Morgan's Jamie Dimon and Bank of America's Ken Lewis each bought common stock in their companies. MarketWatch says Dimon acquired 500,000 shares of JPM on Friday, while Lewis bought 200,000 shares of BofA on Tuesday. MarketWatch notes that in July, Wachovia's Robert Steel purchased 1 million shares of the bank soon before it collapsed and sold itself to Wells Fargo. But let's not go there.
