Is Stifel going a bridge too far with Morgen Keegan? This would be 11 deals since 2004. It is time to take a break and grow this business.
I think Ron K is doing a fine job "growing" the buisness to over a billion dollars a year in revenues.
maybe Ron K should buy Morgan Stanley instead? If getting bigger thru buying wounded players is your game, maybe citi or bac?
missing out on morgan keegan might be the best thing for sf right now. internal growth is the way to go.
nice miss Ron K. nice move since morgan loss
