The second-largest investment bank became one of the hardest-hit firms in the mortgage crisis. In the fourth quarter, it took a $9.4 billion writedown on its mortgage-related securities and posted its first-ever quarterly loss of $3.6 billion.

That led to the departure of Co-President Zoe Cruz, a rising star who had been viewed as CEO John Mack's successor. For his part, Mack eschewed his annual bonus, pocketing only $1.5 million in salary. Thanks to heavy trading volume earlier in the year, the company ended 2007 in the black, with a $3.2 billion profit.
