    what devastation...reviewing one year

    so lets think about this... LA office wiped out, except for miles and his crew, which is actively looking and once their contract expires they are history... just that sleezey, bully Wisely(who tried to leave but could not get a job...lol) he is staring at the walls,,couldnt happen to a nicer guy. Seattle, nothing without hershey who is long gone. SF... not much to start with, but almost all big brokers gone, and the manager of SF leaves for another firm. Chicaco--a joke--- manager leaves brokers did or will, and they put the weakest manager in the system in his place. Florida.... the managers have been spotted at at every major firm, and the brokers will shortly follow. NY- everybody good left..just compliance problems, brokers on contract who are unprofitable, or small producers left, What did Fahnstock buy? We all think the price was cheap, but when you think about it, he got the pleasure of assuming leases he can't afford, a name..but who is he kidding; the world knows we are fahnstock, and managers or brokers who couldn't get jobs elsewhere. His one big broker who is left is the biggest market timer in the world who will be indicted, creating who knows what other damage to the firm. I inate the acquiation for the worst trade in the history of Wall Street......Oppenheimer..what a joke; we are officially a bucket shop.

    • I have Jimmy's best interests at heart. He is MUCH more risk averse than he used to be.

      Hey, retirement is around the corner one of these days. I only recommened securities with no down side and 50% or more upside in 90 days or less to Jimmy's pp broker.

      On another matter, Wachovia (WB) is running non stop ads on CNN. Have you seen them? Do you like them?

    • "Just make sure you know..."

      This is getting pathetic!

      First YMH brags about touting stocks to Jimmy Cayne, then Luke reads her the compliance riot act, then YMH avers that 'Sure, I always take inot account Jimmy's geriatric condition, etc., etc.'

      I'm just waiting for Luke to congratulate YMH on her perspicacity.

    • I always take Jimmy's risk/reward tolerances into consideration when dispensing any investment advice. Jimmy's almost 70 now and is a little more risk averse than he used to be when he was my age.

    • Just make sure you know your client and that your recommendations are prudent and appropriate based upon Jimmy's risk tolerance, return requirements, tax situation, and any other unique circumstances and constraints.

    • No, and I am NOT Jimmy Cayne's pp broker, either, though I know his pp broker pretty well and Jimmy's quite pleased with him. Every once in a while I suggest an equity or two with some "potential" to his broker (always with caveats about risk/reward and discussing it with Jimmy first, of course).

    • Are you Frank's publicist?

    • Yet another stupid Dantus move!!!

    • BSC/Chicago needed a guy like Frank to manage the private client (retail) side. He's honest, he's seasoned, he's a great people person. His recruiting skills are ABOVE par for the biz.

      The SF market is much different than the Chicago one with respect to "local" talent and what it takes to "recruit" them no matter what sector they're in.

      No, I am not a headhunter. Yes, I am from the midwest originally and "our" ethics are much different than anyone born/raised in CA.

      Frank's happy to be back home I hear.

    • Frank James is very well-thought-of by one and all. A great guy.

      On the other hand...by universal consensus, he is NOT any great shakes as a manager. (Given his personal wealth, perhaps that's understandable.)

      Having done very little with OPY's SF branch, why wouldn't he be delighted to "fail upward" and land a far bigger branch for BSC?
