Meredith Whitney: Home Prices Could Drop Another 25%

 In case you missed it, Meredith Whitney was on Squawk Box yesterday. And she was once again playing the role of harbinger of doom.

She told Squawk that home prices could fall by another 25 per cent because of high unemployment and another leg down will come for stocks. What’s more, she said the financial sector will be in trouble as many more loans go bust.

Here’s a video of her appearance:
